Buy Old Software
When it comes to graphic design, or simply creating and editing photos, documents, and presentations, creative software breathes life into your designs. The most popular type of creative software is Adobe Photoshop, which is very useful for not only editing but creating as well. Other types of creative software include Corel Painter, VideoStudio for editing movies, and music editing software, like Sony Music Studio, to tweak your own original songs and make them sound radio-ready.

Whenever hackers discover a new hole in your phone's software to exploit, phone-makers usually get it fixed, and that fix is sent out to your phone to make sure that nobody can take advantage of it. That's a security patch. You'll likely have received plenty of them over time as cybercriminals are always trying to find new ways to circumvent the security on your phone. It's a continual cycle of identifying threats, solving them, then finding the next one.
Paul Ducklin, principal research scientist at security company Sophos, agrees. "If your phone has a software vulnerability that crooks already know how to exploit, for example to steal data or implant malware, then that vulnerability is going to be with you forever," he said.
Finding out if your phone is still supported and receiving security patches often isn't straightforward. To start, go into Settings and check your software updates. Install the latest version that's available. Usually it'll give you some indication of when the phone was last updated. If your phone says it has the latest OS software, but that latest version was installed many months or even years ago, it's bad news. Your phone is probably no longer supported.
A good rule of thumb is that a phone will no longer be supported if it's two to three years old. This varies from company to company, however. Google's older Pixel phones typically got three years of software updates, but it upped that to five years of guaranteed updates with the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Google also mandates that manufacturers must provide at least two years of updates for devices. Apple, by comparison, still provides software updates for phones going back almost seven years, because it has relatively few models to manage.
You might not notice immediately if your phone is out of date. The most obvious sign you're on old software might be when you look for new apps to download. Many apps will simply be incompatible due to the software and hardware limitations on your phone and you won't be able to install them.
First, you should make sure the phone has the latest software installed. If you bought it used, make sure to fully factory-reset the phone. Ensure that you only download apps from the Google Play Store (rather than from third-party or unofficial app stores) and certainly avoid installing apps by downloading the APK file from a website. This can often be a way that malicious software weasels its way into a phone.
Although it's not something you should do regularly due to potential security issues, there will always be times when you might need to download old versions of software and apps. For example, maybe the newest version has bugs, has lost features, or is no longer compatible with your operating system.
However, in March 2015 (and under the guidance of a new CEO), Softonic committed to cleaning up its act. Today, the site is much more trustworthy and has become a solid repo of old apps for you to download. Old software is available for Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, and various web apps.
FileHippo's main selling point is its handpicked list of the latest versions of the best software for Windows and Mac. However, for popular apps, the site also offers extensive back catalogs of old versions of apps and software.
Apps on the site are updated daily with new versions, icons, screenshots, and other related material. All changelogs are available, and all software that is available for download on the site is first checked for viruses and malware using the VirusTotal and Google Safe Browsing tools.
Of course, old versions of software and apps (for both Windows and Mac) are also available. To find the old versions of apps, just click through to an app's listing and use the dropdown list adjacent to Old Versions at the top of the page.
The security practices on APKPure are just as rigorous as those found on APKMirror. All apps are verified using SHA1, it uses cryptographic signature matching, and all new apps are verified using other software from the same developer.
Most software that you buy directly from Microsoft, like Office, Windows, and Xbox games, comes as a digital download that you can download, install, or reinstall. After you purchase software, the download will be shown in your Order history. To find a specific download, sign in to the Order history page with the Microsoft account you used to make the purchase. Find the software, and then select Product key/Install.
If you bought your Microsoft software from a third-party website, you'll need to get download and product key info from them. For more info about a Microsoft 365 subscription, see Manage your Microsoft 365 subscription purchased through a third party.
If you bought boxed software that we shipped to you, Order history can't store the product key until you install the software for the first time. Follow the installation instructions that came with the boxed software.
Previously, you could use money from a 529 plan to buy a computer only if it was required by the college for attendance. That is no longer the case. Savings can indeed be used to buy a computer or pay for internet access as a qualified higher-education expense. An iPad used for college would also qualify, as would any related peripheral equipment, such as a printer. But software designed for sports, games or hobbies is excluded, unless it is predominantly used for educational purposes, according to the IRS.
"Progress is a 40-year-old software company, and I don't know how many of those exist on this planet," Gupta said. Microsoft and Oracle are roughly the same age, but "people only talk about companies that were founded this century -- there are few like us."
Progress has experience working with open source communities through its Fiddler software, and Chef's open source licensing update two years ago was a part of its appeal as an acquisition target, he said.
FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW: On a picture perfect English summer day, the day was not filled with military airplanes, aside from an A400M. But nowadays some of the most important things in aerospace are invisible and intangible, like software and artificial intelligence. In fact, the most interesting thing the US defense press heard today about was how the Air Force is considering changing how it buys software to better make use of AI and machine learning.
However, given that the market for second-hand software is very much in its infancy, it can be difficult to estimate how much a perpetual software licence will sell for. ProCADIS experts are available to provide guidance in this.
There are a multitude of factors which will influence the attractiveness of a software licence on the market. In order for a seller to recover as much as possible of the original cost of acquisition of the licence, the following influencing factors should be considered in order of relative importance:
Some software publishers have very high list pricing and then offer discounts between 80% - 90% more or less as standard; others only offer 10 or 20%. Why does this matter for second-hand software sales? The most obvious difficulty for a buyer of second-hand software is to purchase maintenance at affordable rates. The software publisher can attempt to discourage second-hand sales of their software licences by insisting on charging list price for maintenance and support. In the case of a software publisher that typically discounts by between 10% and 20%, this is not as much of a disincentive as in the case of a software vendor who typically discounts by 80% and 90%.
If the licence is being sold with a period of maintenance and support still to run, then this will obviously increase its value. Firstly, because during the maintenance period the buyer need not purchase maintenance. Secondly, because the buyer (or ProCADIS on the buyer's behalf) has time to negotiate with the software publisher in order to agree a reasonable price for a future maintenance term. Compared to requiring a maintenance contract immediately, this is a huge advantage to the buyer.
ProCADIS strives to reach agreements with software publishers. Our intention is to encourage software publishers to see second-hand software sales as an opportunity to expand their client base. Software licences that are no longer used provide no income for a software publisher, whereas a second-hand sale can give that licence a new lease of life, and gives the software publisher a new source of revenue from maintenance and support payments. By cooperating with software publishers, ProCADIS adds to the value to software licences by giving the buyers of that software confidence in acquiring licences with the approval of the software publisher.
The value of the second-hand licence will be greatly enhanced by the presence of a third-party support provider. The market for third-party support on software is growing rapidly. Rimini Street, Spinnaker Support, Alui, Support Revolution and CedarCrestone offer support on many software products from top vendors, often with better SLAs than what the software publisher will offer. As a seller, being able to offer the buyer the possibility to purchase third party support will greatly increase the price a second-hand licence will achieve. ProCADIS can advise you on this and propose solutions via our partner network. 041b061a72
