One thought on “Geek News Central Podcast #21 2004-12-21

  1. One small note about your “Trillian 3” comment.

    I just got Trillian 3.0, and AFAIK, it’s not a seperate upgrade fee. There is still the free Basic version, for one, and if you still have time on a Pro subscription, you can upgrade to the full Pro version of 3.

    Trillian (Cerulian Studios) uses a yearky subscription-based model, as opposed to a single-version purchase. You buy for a given amount of time, and get access to all Pro upgrades, patches, and plugins.

    I recall hearing some controversy about people who thought they bought a “Lifetime Upgrade Subscription”, but it seems those don’t actually exist (???).
