I used to have TechNet and Skype. The former is gone and I have little use for the latter.

 

Subscription-based services are evil. We are already burdened by the utilities, cable, cell-phone bills, not to mention rent/mortgage/maintenance monthly payments.

 

It's best to buy something by paying only once and use it forever than to keep feeding a company every month.

 

From a corporation's point of view, however, it's best for them to get us hooked on their monthly plans because this gives them guaranteed positive cash flow.

 

Totally agree!! :)

 

Just about anything on the net that has a subscription based setup, you can find it or something equally as good, for free and if I can't, I probably didn't want it anyway.

 

Just about totally stupid to pay for services!

In 99% of cases, paying for a subscription service is easier, you pay for convenience. Yeah, i don't need to sub to Netflix but doing so is both easier and legal.

 

Also, i sub to Skype Premium, tell me what i can use instead?

None currently because I'm not to fond on subscriptions when there are lifetime options available. Although, I did use to have web hosting at a point.

OneDrive,

Skype Premium,

WoW.

 

But looking at those in details, I don't really pay as the subscriptions I have for them are either on pause (WoW) or cancelled (OneDrive, which I seem to have amassed a total of 410GBs on) because I got them from one promotion or another. Got a Surface 2 Pro which comes with OneDrive / Skype subscriptions.
