It's really not hard to find if you're looking for a Photoshop alternative. I bought a license from them just from some basic online research around 6 months ago.

Once we have decided to move out of Apple Music, just discard the Russian Apple ID and be done with it. . Thanks

Sorry, I just purchased the Chinese credit and tried to redeem but the Chinese iTunes Store need the real person details in order to redeem any gift card, so it is just impossible unless you live in China, such a shame.

Only disadvantage is if you are using other country while creating apple I'd then you'll be restricted to access for certain apps in uk. All apple developers doesn't upload apps world wide. While using Indian apple I'd account, I have came across this.

MrBrightside1987

Photoshop is about £10/month which sounds pretty reasonable, plus they have decent discounts for students etc. Also, there’s deals for 12 month subs at discounted prices sometimes posted here. Amazon currently have 12 months of Photoshop for £110 which works out to a reasonable £9.12/month Agree that it’s a known tactic of Adobe to make the student and educational versions cheap as possible just to get people using their software and then charging more for the full versions but that’s not an excuse to advocate piracy; if you’re making money from it then it pays for itself, if you’re just using for personal then there’s free alternatives available

purplefleece

It's good value I'm afraid. While I still use an old version of Photoshop 6, creative cloud has all adobe programmes. So good for staff and students in education.

paulj48

Disagree as they also have the Photoshop‘Elements’ version aimed at home use so stealing the full version in theory robs them of an ‘elements’ license.

89quidyoucantgowrong

I'm sorry but Adobe software is the perfect use case scenario where nobody should feel guilty about sourcing for free if it's exclusively for home use. This is commercial software priced at a level for commercial use where it gives good value in terms of output and productivity. Learning to use it at home for free is all good for Adobe as it makes it easier for more people to use it in the workplace where it is quite rightly paid for.

Falko_Plugge

Last I checked over £30, sometimes £33. I know about the free version, but it comes up repeatedly with desktop notifications to purchase the paid version, and it's quite expensive. I used to get Kaspersky free from my bank as well before, but they stopped. I bought the paid version because of the additional functions like parental control and others. Have had Kaspersky for over 10 years, not had any issues.

From PrivacyTools.io: The UKUSA Agreement is an agreement between the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand to cooperatively collect, analyze, and share intelligence. Members of this group, known as the Five Eyes, focus on gathering and analyzing intelligence from different parts of the world. While Five Eyes countries have agreed to not spy on each other as adversaries, leaks by Snowden have revealed that some Five Eyes members monitor each other’s citizens and share intelligence to avoid breaking domestic laws that prohibit them from spying on their own citizens. The Five Eyes alliance also cooperates with groups of third party countries to share intelligence (forming the Nine Eyes and Fourteen Eyes), however Five Eyes and third party countries can and do spy on each other. Basically if you're looking for a VPN that you want to use for privacy/security reasons then you'll want to pick a VPN which is operated outside of a five eyes country. Look for VPNs hosted in Switzerland and Panama, etc. Privacy Tools also have a section on recommended VPNs that are all outside of five eyes, and don't log your activity.

Everyone has heard a bad story about <insert AV here>, Norton used to be the bad one, then Kaspersky with its supposed Russian links. Truth is they all have to be invasive to do their job, if an Anti Virus does not have some impact on your PC its not working correctly, they simply have to read a file as its opened to do their job, and its better to be careful than getting Malware. None of them are perfect, they cant ever be 100% safe and which one is the best all depends on what samples the comany has analysed and got signitures for, and when the last upgrade was released compared to the testing date. The built in Windows Defender is good, but its only AV/Anti Malware, pay more for a premium product and you get more bells and whiles like VPN, Child protection, rejection of suspisious websites, password safes and so on.

patnyb

mcafee is malware. Avoid.

meherenow

Although the free Avast, now with NON STOP pop ups trying to get you to upgrade is a major pain, bordering on spyware itself!

Bimbojimuk

The guy in work uses Macfee only for home use, sorry to confuse you and thanks for the information about the "work" version as i wasn't aware it existed.

fiqqer

Mcafee for work is a different product. My work uses mcafee and it is managed so provides an effective solution. Mcafee for home users is a very poor product and fails some av tests completely. I have cleared thousands of infections from computers that had Mcafee. It just doesn't protect from certain kinds of infections. Thinking you are protected when you are not is worse than knowing you dont have protection. Most, if not all, of the free av products are better than the paid for mcafee

Just.Wondering

PS you have explained nothing , you have voiced your opinion that quite frankly is invalid, but yes please prove me wrong factually.

Just.Wondering

But GoG say it is uncool , not a act of fraud, so how is it a fraudulent action, no fraud as taken place ! Please Google for me something based on GoG's terms and conditions that state an act of fraud has taken place by using a VPN to purchase software through their store. If you have a valid point to make, then it needs validating, other wise your point is not a point....basically you are making no point at all, therefore it is pointless.

PressPlay

I already explained it the first time you asked so if you're still having trouble grasping the concept try google for further reading.

Just.Wondering

read my posts, you said it was a act of fraud....well tell me how is it a act of fraud , GOG say it aint cool, the cost of the product is under £15 which would make a it a tax free import. So basically , why is it fraud ? unless been uncool is a fraudulent action. So yeah go chat to your dog for a while.....

PressPlay

So you're basically saying you have no idea what the point you're making is. I may as well have a conversation with my dog at least he can grasp basic ethics.

How many allowed connections/devices?

DoubleUp

Wow, seriously you pair? So Steve is almost certainly correct in regards to the fact that a VPN using this business model is absolutely not sustainable. I think some of the more reputable vpn's advertising long term subscriptions for short periods is possibly a good business move as it can result in a massive cash injection. However, this particular vpn has been using this model for years and I doubt that there is any way that they can be paying for data that cheap. However, calling Jasee uneducated and being dishonest? There are better ways to argue a point. It just makes you sound like the comic book guy from the Simpsons. No kiss and make up rather than ruining the thread by hijacking it with arguments!!

jasee

Anyone can find and read negative things about anything. And no VPN is perfectly secure. From my experience, this one works. For me it ticks the boxes, This site is about good deals. If you actually use one regularly which you think is better, why don't you post .it as a deal? Experience should count for a lot here IMO. Looks like you've sunk it as a deal this time so I've finiished replying to you.

steve23094

Some people are so tightly wound that they cannot see sense. But my value here would be to others that have an open mind, don't mind learning about how VPNs work and what makes a good one. As opposed to not being able to acknowledge they made a bad choice.

jasee

You've just got nothing of any value to say, have you? Why don't you post a deal if you know of a better one, rather than just criticising others, oh sorry, you have posted one deal, snikker

As I said, plenty of links. Question though. If Seagate drives are no less reliable than others, how is it that you almost never see any other make of "Recertified" drives for sale, excepting the recent spate of WD drives. Please point me to mass sales of Recertified Toshiba or Hitachi drives.

twiggy9999

Ah okay the data we collected from over 750,000 consumer hard drives over a 3 year period was wrong then

Gentle_Giant

Sorry, there have been plenty of links to diskfarm results showing Seagate drives are the most unreliable. They have a few decent drives, and others have a few dodgy drives; but overall Seagate drives are the most unreliable, and always have been. They have survived by using two techniques 1/ Heavily discounting sales to big system makers and wholesale outlets. 2/ Buying out other (more reliable) manufacturers and shutting them down. In other words, they are the TalkTalk of the HDD world. They must be really happy SSDs are taking over, because even they cant bugger them up the way they do their HDD plants.
