>From the perspective of an enthusiastic user of other "dead" PIM programs
of the past, most notably Ecco Pro, a great outliner-based PIM program...
When I put my life and information and plans and schemes and goals into a
program like MLO, the last thing I want is for the company producing that
software to go belly-up.
MLO cloud fees are a small price to pay for being able to count on having
the features of this awesome program available year after year.
For example, Google sells advertising. That's their business model. They
can afford to "give away" things that help their business model, or give
them a competitive advantage that leads people to the part of the business
where they make money. At last check MLO was not in the business of selling
ads, just the business of providing great personal productivity software on
PC, Mac, and mobile platforms. How else can MLO stay in business and pay
their developers if they can't make money somewhere? I guarantee you don't
want to be a loyal user of a dead program from a company that no longer
exists. MLO's cloud fees are reasonable enough. Servers and bandwidth and
people and systems to monitor them and keep them up aren't free, so MLO has
an expense to cover in providing the service. MLO even provides us a way
to sync over WiFi and other options so we are not "forced" to use the cloud
service. However, being able to use cloud sync is such a big productivity
booster, to me it's worth paying a few bucks every year or two.
It's a small price to pay to ensure the ongoing viabiity of a program whose
primary agenda is to help US be more productive, without us being funneled
and forced into other agendas like happens with Google, Microsoft, Apple,
Amazon, etc. Don't get me wrong, I love and use products from all those
P.S. I'm hoping before long their might even be a "skill" developed for
Amazon Echo so that "Alexa, add a task to my to-do list, buy my girlfriend
a Seattle Sounders jersey for Christmas", and have that task added to my
*MLO* to-do list, instead of the lame Amazon Echo one. Oh yes, and "Alexa,
add a task to buy tickets to MLS Cup at 7 pm pacific time tomorrow".
