FedEx use that money and pay some developer to rewrite that crap.

I don't know many developers who would be willing to get paid in $5 off coupons for use of a program that is so bad they are being paid in coupons just to rewrite it from scratch.

That's sorta like paying someone a bag of garbage in exchange for taking out your trash.

I know I'm being trolled, but don't be a tard. Of course FedEx has budgeted a certain amount of money for this.

Actually, the subscription thing was introduced a year ago. You can still opt for the standalone one-time license though.

1Password is moving to an all subscription pricing model. If someone has purchased 6 they'll receive all updates to 6, but that's it.

From Dave Teare directly "So no, I will not promise that 1Password 7 or 8 will allow licenses to be used instead of memberships. These releases are too far in the future to make any promises about."

My point is meteorologists are frequently wrong about predicting weather for the next day, yet we're supposed to change the behavior of the entire population of earth for predictions that are centuries in the future. Some of those same scientists took a boat to a place they have under observation to prove their predictions RIGHT NOW and they were wrong.

Wrong. Wrong. WRONG.

So if they were so wrong about the current condition of a place they've been monitoring for decades, why should anyone trust what they have to say about that same place a hundred years in the future?
