  • Re: Is software ownership to be a thing of the past in a few years?

    [quote user="Bill Moore"] it looks as though the software industry is moving towards a subscription model.[/quote] This is not true. The only regularly quoted examples are Adobe and MS Office. Most of the software innovation nowadays is in Mobile apps - which have a great model: Pay once, own software, lifetime free updates, in-app purchases if required

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

    I, too, have not been enticed by renting LN. Here are my reasons: I am fully for owning the products and software I pay money for and not renting features (however new they might be). I prefer to pay money for things I will keep “forever’ (this side of eternity anyway!) [With LN, if you stop paying, you lose the features.] Logos Now is mainly advanced

    Why not offer both options (for more customers and thus maximum cash income) But it would be Full Text Logos Edition for me too. Thanks.

    [quote user="Bob Pritchett"]t's hard to describe and offer each extension as something new to purchase, and logistically difficult to charge for these things.

So under my proposal - it would be charging for something (ownership model) giving early access now (but owned) that is likely to be free later on. Same difference - just paying

    [quote user="Bob Pritchett"](Serious question: Would you 'I have to own it' fans be okay if ownership really was completely transactional? You buy it, you get it as it is that moment. We disable server features, give 30 days tech support and then start charging $10/call, and you don't get feature upgrades or OS-related improvements to your mobile apps

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

    I guess my main concern would be loss or lack of acquistion of good quality Christian publishers. I'm not sure it would be a way to tempt back Moody or entice Banner of Truth to want to partner with you. Yes I'd like lots of ebooks (I'd only buy the Christian studies ones!) but I'd MUCH MUCH rather not have all so we could get Moody and BoT for example
