DEATH BY SUBSCRIPTION
I've Just been reading an article in the Wall Street Journal about tech in 2021 and this image particularly resonated with me as I know I need to review all mine as it's getting messy (and I'm normally pretty organised).
As WSJ says: "Everything now has some sort of subscription attached to it. Your 600 video streaming apps, your grocery-delivery service, your cloud storage, certainly, but also your workout bike? Your to-do list app? Your dog food? Everything as a Service (EaaS), as we like to call it, is only going to continue."
And it won't be getting better any time soon as: "Those subscriptions you’re already paying for will continue to rise. Companies argue you need to pay more so they can add more content and features. In June, YouTube TV raised its cable-like bundle by $15. In October, Netflix raised its most popular streaming plan from $12.99 to $13.99. In November, Google eliminated its free Google Photos storage tier. And Disney announced that in March, the monthly price of Disney+ will go from $6.99 to $7.99."
The brilliant illustration is by Jason Schneider and you can find the article here: http://on.wsj.com/39rJeVq
