Subscription Affliction – Everything is $10/month

December 2, 2019

If you watch movies, listen to music, or own
a phone, You’re probably familiar with subscriptions. At least, your wallet is Which, for companies, are pure gold Or, green,
I guess. Instead of selling you today, and tomorrow,
and next week, They only need to convince you once, and the money keeps coming. A steady, predictable stream of revenue. Because each customer is so valuable, they
can focus more on keeping them than doing anything and everything to get more. But it’s no longer just newspapers and magazines,
now it’s everything: Music, Movies, Food, Games, Storage, Clothes,
Razors, Makeup, Software, Cars, animal bones? Seriously – Bonebox ”includes various osteological
specimens such as skulls, claws, and teeth” for just $24.99 a month Ooo-kay?! Why does every business need to be a subscription? Where does it end? Let’s divide subscriptions into two categories. Services, like Netflix, Prime, Lootcrate,
and Spotify, kinda have to be subscriptions Sure, you can buy music and movies individually,
but here, you get everything. 40 million songs on Apple Music times the
usual dollar twenty nine would be $51 million dollars – so, yeah. Subscription boxes, which send you new things
in the mail every month, are services because they’re more about fun and surprise than
the stuff itself. And then there are products – things that
could be sold, but here are rented. And this is where things get hairy You don’t
have to be a master Googler or Binger, or DuckDuckGoer, but, boy do those sound awkward,
to find a million and a half people criticizing this business model. But it’s not actually subscriptions they’re
angry about, nobody’s complaining about Netflix or Spotify, it’s really this second
category – especially software. When companies want to reach in your wallet
every month until you die for what could be a simple, one-time purchase, it feels a lot
like a cash grab, And, sometimes, it totally is. Adobe switched to a monthly fee precisely
to increase profit. But it’s not always so simple, Even when
they seem unnecessary, subscriptions can be good for everyone, including you and I. Companies usually don’t explain why, and
when they do, it’s easy to see as just an excuse to make more money, but there is a
why. And since my thing is taking complicated,
controversial topics and trying to explain them in too little time – let’s get to it… The idea of a rental is nothing new, we rent
apartments, and cars, and if you live in Alaska, where there are still 6 Blockbusters, movies. Hashtag SomeoneTellAlaskaAboutNetflix But, nobody wants to rent, say, their lamp. When you don’t have to, why would you? Owning is just simpler, and usually, cheaper. Losing what we already own is especially frustrating. Apps like Ulysses and Autodesk were a one-time
purchase, then one day, you get an email: I know you already bought this, but if you
want to keep getting updates, now it costs $5 a month. k thanks bye. Ulysses was absolutely flooded with 1 star
reviews. Probably the most life the Mac App Store’s
ever seen… And fifty thousand people signed a
petition against Adobe. Which, as we know, is very effective…at
spamming your email But here’s the problem: The way most people
think about software just isn’t realistic. Remember that lamp? what if every year you got this popup: Hey,
you need to update to a new version of your house. If you don’t, it’ll be vulnerable to burglars. Sometimes it goes smoothly, sometimes it permanently
changes your wall sockets. Maybe to these cute little ones from Denmark. And you think, What the heck? I bought that lamp and now it’s suddenly
incompatible with my house for reasons completely beyond my control? The house is your operating system, the lamp,
your software. Programming may seem like build once – collect
profit forever, but if an app isn’t updated, it dies. Technology just moves way too fast. Knowing this, do you really want to own that
lamp? Truly owning software means owning all its
bugs and future incompatibility. Maybe your answer is yes, we’ll get to that
later. But me, if I really depend on something, and
there’s a chance it’ll break in a year, well, I’d rather rent it from someone who
maintains it. Fixing bugs is like Sisyphus endlessly pushing
his boulder up the mountain only for it to fall back down. You can’t expect developers to do that forever
just because you gave them 99 cents three years ago. You might say “Obviously these apps don’t
need subscriptions because they did just fine before” – but the truth is, they mostly
didn’t… Big companies always find a way to earn a
profit, Adobe has the power and prominence to ask $53 a month, and make billions doing
it. But many apps, some of the best apps, are
made by a single person, or a small team of them. They compete with 2, 3 million others, and
a feeling that if you can’t hold something, it shouldn’t cost anything. So, unless you trademark the word “Candy”,
seriously that actually happened, or spend millions advertising, your sales look like
this: A huge spike in the beginning, maybe some seasonal bumps, and then, almost nothing. You might make half your salary on the first
day, but by the 20th or 50th, things don’t look so good. So you have a few options: You can get more customers – Do some marketing,
keep updating the app, and cross your fingers. Or, more accurately, pray to the App Store
Gods Sometimes this can work. But the App Store isn’t like YouTube, doing
everything it can to bring audiences to your videos, Right, YouTube? Even a great app can get stuck in a corner
and never be found. And eventually, everyone who needs your app
will already have it. Plenty of happy customers, and no more income
for you. Or: if sales are so good at the beginning,
just release as many paid updates as possible. Again, sometimes it works. But it can also be a dangerous trap, because
the incentive is to release as many paid updates as you can. Just enough new features to make people pay,
but not so many that you can’t do it again in a few months. And sooner or later, it’ll be good enough
for 99% of us, but hey, gotta keep making money, so you’ll keep cramming in new, unnecessary
features. That was Microsoft Office. What I ask from Word is pretty basic: when
I press a key on my keyboard, I want that same letter to show on my screen. ahem Take notes, MacBook Pro keyboard And I guess fonts and tables and images are
cool too. But I have absolutely zero need for 3D pie
charts or smart tags, or research tools, or a talking paperclip. Actually, I take that last back, Clippy. Office was so profitable, Microsoft kept adding,
and adding, and adding, until it forgot Word is, just, ya know, a place to write stuff. At this point, I’ll just use Google Docs,
where I actually know what the buttons do. For many apps, neither option is sustainable. And even if you feel zero sympathy for developers,
it’s in your best interest to find a solution: Because if you rely on an app, for your business,
or hobby, or security, you want to incentivize its developer to care as much as you do. We can say companies should update their apps
forever, and always answer support tickets, or we can design a system where they actually
want to. For many apps, that’s a subscription – taking
what you would’ve paid upfront and handing it out over time. If developers want to keep getting paid, they
want to keep you happy. Over time, subscriptions cost more, but for
that, you’re guaranteed updates, and support, and compatibility. Plus, it rewards the apps you use the longest. In some industries, these better incentives
are even more desperately needed: For news companies, the goal is more clicks,
more views, more ads, usually the worst kind of ads. Clickbait only stops if clicks stop being
profitable, which is the promise of subscriptions like Blendle and Inkl. One price for all the articles you want. Or, a small micropayment per article, refunded
if it turns out to be clickbait. The goal is no longer to deceive you, but
keep you subscribed. Subscriptions give sites like Above Avalon,
Kottke, and Macstories freedom to make quality content on really specific topics, instead
of whatever it takes to attract huge audiences. It also lets you and I try things out, maybe
you only need a service occasionally, in which case you can subscribe only when you actually
need it. But because people think only of services
as subscriptions, products often try to argue they’re actually a service. Something like: “We store and sync your
data, which costs us money” But not very much. All this does is create distrust. Developers should be up-front: “What you’re
really paying for is longevity, which is in everyone’s best interest.” But there is a catch… One movie ticket is an entire month of Netflix,
and then some. Factor in popcorn savings, and make it a lifetime You could own one single album or every noise
ever made on planet Earth for the price of a few Cups of Coffee. But when everything is the price of one or
two cups of coffee, you can very quickly end up buying a whole Starbucks. Say you subscribe to Netflix, Amazon Prime,
Spotify, Dropbox, and BlueApron. That’s over a hundred dollars a month. Add Creative Cloud, YouTube TV, and the New
York Times, and it’s another hundred. And this is just the beginning Apple takes 30% of an app’s revenue, but
for long-term subscriptions, now only 15. So more and more businesses are going to make
use. For movies alone, there’s already Netflix,
Amazon, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, and soon, Disney, and Apple. So, not everything can or should be a subscription. Things you use only occasionally and don’t
rely on have no reason to be, or should at least have another option for
people who fall into that category: The app Sketch finds a good balance – One
upfront price, with one year of updates. You can treat it like a subscription, or you
can not. Another solution is Bundles – one price for
multiple subscriptions. Setapp, for example, does this with mac applications. And more companies will follow: Apple could
have one for Apple Music, streaming video, iCloud storage, maybe some other things. Amazon Prime has shown how well this strategy
can work. Students get Spotify and Hulu together for
less than either separately. Or, how about a subscription to be a great
student, on topics like physics, computer science, and problem solving? Brilliant helps you learn new things in a
way that you actually understand, not just memorize for the next test. Last term I took a math class covering some
differential equations, all pretty vague and theoretical, but after looking at the lesson
on Brilliant, I really wish I had known about it. It starts by explaining why the concept actually
matters, and what it’s all about, with visuals, and questions to give you instant feedback. If you answer incorrectly, Brilliant doesn’t
just mark your answer red and move on, it helps you understand how to get it right. If you’re a student, or like learning new
things, find a topic that peaks your interest and dive in. I recommend Computer Science Algorithms – it’s
pretty interesting, and gives you a peak at how our technology works. And speaking of subscriptions, it’s really
the ideal: premium is one low price, they keep adding new topics all the time, and you
have the freedom to jump around to learn exactly what interests you most. You can support PolyMatter by going to the
link in the description – And the first 200 people to use that will
get 20% off the annual premium subscription. Thanks to Brilliant, and to everyone who gives
it a try.

    In would much prefer pay upfront and pay for updates, at least then I can choose when I want to pay for new features rather than being locked out of my apps if I can't afford the subscription fee

    It's bad enough that these apps flood your phone with the most annoying ads imaginable just to make you so pissed off that you pay out of frustration (doesn't work on me, I just delete the app, or turn off data for that particular app)

    Subscription fees for services like icloud, Spotify, Netflix.etc is fine, I personally don't use them, but it makes more sense for that to be a subscription service

    but for software that doesn't need to be online (meaning it is capable of running on the host device and does not rely on outside hardware, not just because you chose to cut out a piece of code and then stream it in from a server to force the app to be online only, or because you are rubbing online authentication DRM) pay upfront is the only way to get my business

    I'm not going to pay $9.99 per month to play a single player game, but il buy it for $30 on steam

    I have a lot of apps on my phone that went subscription only, aren't I lucky that i rarely update my apps, because I still have the non subscription versions of those apps

    Legit question: So why dont companies, say Adobe, do a one time purchase, let's say, $100. Then, if you ever want to change versions, which they release every year with new features and keep out the bugs. This could be a 1.X update let's say. Then minor tweaks and bug fixes for your version are free. Let's say you own 1.3 of photoshop and theres a bug that causes it to crash to desktop if you use the paint bucket. They give a small bugfix and it's all better. But next year, they are on 1.4, you don't upgrade because theres not enough cool stuff to need to. Nothing big changed or improved. No compatibility issues. Nothing. So you keep using 1.3 until 1.5 comes out and it changes some stuff you hate about 1.3 so you fork over the $25.

    One thing I’m worred is “live services”, jim Sterling pointed it out that this is unsustainable. Not to mention if you have herd about google stadia about “game ownership”. It’s part of how a games you “have” could vanish if companies shut down their servers and render your game permanently unplayable.

    Always-online DRM demonstrates with games with an upfront price that you technically own, only for it to “expires” (similar to shelf life of foods) if the company didn’t patch out the restrictions before the death of support for the game. This is a warning sign with games that rely on support from the companies in order for the game to be available.

    I find Xbox GamePass to be the best subscription service. There are no games locked behind it, and it gives you a 20% discount on any of the games and all DLC products for said games. You could always get the $1 dollar for a month special, but games you’ve had your eye on for 80% of the normal price, and not need to continue paying a monthly fee.

    As a software developer the argument that subscriptions are necessary because bugs exist is not a valid argument. Software maintenance was always part of the development cycle and did not become a thing when subscriptions started existing. Also as someone who regularly uses Autodesk products and develops custom addins, subscription models have not made the code more stable or better in any way. If anything the stable income stream seems to encourage companies to only attain the bare minimum.

If you want utlities; get them here Want more sophisticated stuff, go here Want publication software (and the only kind that respectable journals accept submissions from) go here For free. You can help program it too. I don't see any "subscriptions" anywhere. If you got suckered by subscriptions, then you're a chump. Don't be a chump; dump the subscriptions and forget about them.

    Have you thought of getting into Venture Capital @polymatter ??

    PolyMatter used to be really good place to learn the indepth explanation. Now, it has become like a sell out. UNSUBSCRIBED.

    10×20=$200 a month not really worth the bullshit. Piracy it is then.

    Hookers should have a subscription service….

  • Reply William Reymond November 29, 2019 at 4:19 am

    $10 per month? What a bargain! What service is that? Everyone on earth wants to charge me $20 a month for their worthless service! People just want to attach a leech to your bank account – forever. Take Adobe for instance the Creative Suite used to be pretty expensive so you used to upgrade only when absolutely necessary. I ran CS2 for fourteen years, I just upgraded to CS6… Now you only have to pay $50/month for the Creative Cloud – for the rest of your life. So this is what you call a kleptocracy??? Ruled by thieves?

    Am I the only one who wonders how this elaborately leads to a subscription? I mean, why does the voice sound so robotic to begin with, Hell, I have yet to see a human face behind all of this “data”. Lol wow.

    All the updates that come from software companies drive me crazy. Always adding features I do not care for or making you learn icons instead of leaving words for menus. Sometimes they go really too far and change what you can play around with. I am very glad I bought legacy software for many things. Having microsoft office 2002 is much better than subscribing to 365. Especially when you are comfortable with the software.

    It is also scary when your subscription comes in the form of unknown data transfers. You do agree to these things when using apps and the like, but you never really know what you lose in that transaction. Sometimes you have no choice.

    Albert Camus tells you that updating your apps, there is joy. 😀
