  • Re: No NEW Journals - why not?

    Welcome to a monopoly producer in a free market...its all about the cash.

  • Re: No NEW Journals - why not?

    Fairly simple determination: Galaxie-new products regularly available. FL-uncertain, unknown, unknowable. Free market forces at play-monopolies get to set distribution, price, availability, and content without regard to customer requests or needs.

  • Re: How do you use Logos? How can we improve it?

    For me I don't need more features, more useless book collections (especially public domain), or doing exegesis from a few limited perspectives. What I would like is a streamlined interface that allows me to do exegesis like I was trained. What I would like is book collections geared to more contemporary theological streams of thought....liberation or

  • Re: My Big Concern about Logos future for ownership model

    For what it is worth I have invested in a Logos Library since my seminary days...which was a while back. I have very limited monetary resources and plan to continue that practice due to the changing nature of e-books as a general matter. It also disturbs me, along with my confidence in FL, to see the company continually (imo) trying to stretch itself

  • Re: Bob: From King To Customer - The end of Faithlife as we knew it?

    I don't know if FL is run by Christians or not. I don't know if FL is dedicated to their customers or not. I don't know if FL is about helping me grow as a person of faith with their software. What I do know is that every other piece of Bible software that I have bought over the years have gone out of business or their software doesn't function as well

  • Re: Logos Now: Why do you have it, or why are you passing on it?

    Personally I have no desire to rent more software than is necessary for my needs. In terms of Logos my fear is that the subscription base will ultimately eliminate my site license for what I have purchased then they will require ever higher fees for whatever it is Logos will use to replace it.

  • Re: Word vs WordPerfect for Larger Academic Papers

    I should have used WordPerfect for my doctoral project but didn't. Almost didn't complete the document (and degree) on time because of formatting difficulties with Word. My advise? Stay with WordPerfect for completion of documents in a timely manner.

  • Re: Faithlife Now Selling Books that Mock God and Promote Atheism

    Debates like this thread is a good reason that Faithlife shouldn't declare itself a "christian" e-publisher...imo. Academic debate from a classic liberal arts perspective is about opening a well educated person to the possibilities other than their own cultural preferences. If what is published is left up for debate nothing would be sold e-book style

    Welcome to the world of free enterprise with a monopoly directing the market....at least we could derive from satisfaction from the mythical fairy of economics of scale.

  • Re: Personnel changes at Faithlife

    [quote user="PL"] And companies don't typically lay off 15% of its staff unless there's some kind of trouble or concern, especially for a small, tight-knit company like FL. [/quote] I certainly can appreciate the concern of spending thousands of dollars on a product while watching large chunks of its staff released from employment. Yet I recall what

  • Re: Personnel changes at Faithlife

    I am somewhat curious as to why this particular thread has such staying power. People get laid off all the time in businesses across America. People face tragedy and difficulties because of such layoffs. FL is just another business that has laid people off due to whatever circumstances being put out by the management team on these forums. A sad situation

  • Re: Again: Trapped feeling

    Of course we shouldn't express our unhappiness with an expense, overly complicated, public domain dominated library droid to others... Each of us decided to spend the amount of money that was dropped into our packages. I too started gathering resources in seminary at better discounts with few upgrades over the years. I too find that few of the resources

  • Re: Undecided if Logos is right for me...

    Logos is, in fact, the Cadillac of Bible oriented software. However, it is more of a library than Bible Software proper due to its open ended manner in which it needs to have huge amounts of resources to run properly...read this as money out of your pocket. For me I bought version 3 in Seminary and never have purchased anything more than a minor upgrade

  • Re: Do you want every ebook in the world in Logos?

    How does one maintain their "integrity" and "vision" related to Christian faith issues when the business is to sell as many books as possible on every subject imaginable? That is sort of like telling Pepsi their soft drink products are so much better because they also sell bottled water...what an Orwellian view of marketing imo.

  • Re: STUDENT DISCOUNT CUTS? :-(

    How does one know if Faithlife/Logos/or whatever is either making money or is viable if it is a private company that limits disclosure of sales figure...unless of course someone has made such information public so that we are...absolutely...accurate in all statements about this company.

  • Re: Logos Now

    I would only point out that companies like Ford Motor Company relied on its founder (i.e. Henry Ford's personality and integrity) to assure the success and continuation of the company. Yet, much like Ford Motors, such reliance on a personality didn't always turn out so well when the founder died or vision didn't meet the changing market conditions.

  • Re: Logos Now-Pay for the "privilege" of buggy software?

    [quote user="David Paul"] [quote user="Thinking"] That is the problem. If the dataset isn't very important, who would subscribe? If it is important, the desktop version is in effect somewhat crippled, thus making it a "requirement" to continue subscribing forever.

  • RE: Logos NOW

    My interest in all this is my relatively small investment in the electronic library that I have...quite small in comparison of others I suspect. As a business I am somewhat fascinated with the notion that Faithlife will not try to soak as much money out of it's "customers" as they possible can for profit. It is the nature of business in a Capitalistic
