Dear my friend, Feeddemon is dead after it was bought by newsgator. It is a nwsgator online subscription server based appendage. We consumer need to show some point. Not just simply let those corporations does whatever they want. They have the captial, They can buy feeddmon. For me itâ??s like I bought feeddemon I bought the house and I own the house. I am the landlord. Suddently after newsgator bought the house, feeddemon goes activated by paid newsgator online account instead of the key number I bought. I became a tenant not a landlord in my own houseâ??feeddemon. Cause the upgrade policy is that I can have all the feeddemon minor upgrade untill 2.0 version. Now, everytime I reinstall feeddemon I need a paid-online newsgator account to activate it. Itâ??s a monthly bill also. Hi my friend,I want to tell you something about nickâ??s promising is a lie: feeddemon wonâ??t work after your subscribtion runs out. To prove this point, I already did a experiment. I used my credit card to updgrade my account to business standard. Then I installd feeddemon 1.6beta fine when I activated it with my business standard account. Then I canceled my subscribition in the trail period, tried to reinstall my whole system including windows and feeddemon 1.6beta. Again feeddemon needed me to put my account to active it. But this time it wasnâ??t activated. Cause my account wasnâ??t a paid account anymore. So nick is lieing about once you own feeddemon, you own it forever. If you donâ??t reinstall your windows, off course feeddemon will be fine even after your subscription runs out. But who can guarantee you wonâ??t need to reinstall your windows. For exemple, you system is scrwed up by virus and then you need to reinstall your whole system, then again you wonâ??t be able to activate without a paid newsgator account. Since newsgator server canâ??t tell the diffrence between ex-paid customer and never-paid customer. So I can't protect my investment on the feeddemon againast all oods! Answering me, my dear listening frind. I spend two hours to reinstall my system and just want to prove nickâ??s promise and protect myself own and the rest hardcore feeddemonâ??s fanâ??s invesment on a piece of software we used to like so much. The fact is that: Why you put yourself into this unpredicatable pain. Feeddemon already died as a stand alone news reader. Cause itâ??s gonna be newsgator paid serviceâ??s add-on. Newsgator is not a software company. They sell the service. Ridiculously the service is about that you need to pay to see your feeds even when feeds is everywhere these days. They bought feeddemon. They ainâ??t plan to sell the feeddemon software but to kill feeddemon market. Itâ??s like if you wanna use feeddemon after this you are gonna paid for newsgatorâ??s feeds subscibing service. If you wonâ??t paid for it, you wonâ??t see your feeds synchronized anymore. This is exactly pain in the ass. They rent the software to you to let you see the feeds you paid for but you can read somewhere else for free? Is this logical? So if you donâ??t want to rent the software for ever and never own it, itâ??s time to leave feeddemon now. Itâ??s soon or later. Cause they donâ??t even use serial number to activate product anymore. You need to use your paid online newsgator account to activate it. So nickâ??s post about rethinking is a lie. You donâ??t have a paid account, you wonâ??t able to activate feeddemon after you subscribition expires. Cause you donâ??t have a paid newsgator account anymore. If your computer screws up one day, you need to reinstall your whole system including feeddemon but you wonâ??t be able to activate it in that period of time without a paid newsgator online account. What you gonna do then? Or other situations similar like this. Itâ??s time to screw up feeddemon as a stand alone newsgator for now. Cause its core is rotten now. Itâ??s not a software anymore. Itâ??s a door in the desktop environment you need to pay to pass to see the feeds free everywhere else just like ne[...]
