We made it to the weekend but Adobe Creative Cloud is having a case of the Mondays. For some users, a bug is deleting hidden folders while Adobe is working on a fix. Meanwhile Amazon Echo gets updated again, the rumored iPhone 5se has a street date, and more. An Adobe Creative Cloud bug in a recent update is deleting some users’ data without warning. Adobe is already working on a fix and has halted distribution of the update. Backblaze users in particular are being affected because the specific folder structure of that service makes it prone to the bug. [Ars Technica] Amazon Echo can now control your thermostat if you have an Ecobee 3. Look at you, future guy, shouting commands about the temperature to your robot house.

Adobe software certainly sets you back a fair percentage of your student loans, but it can be the best software investment you will ever make. My addiction to Adobe products -- Photoshop, Illustrator and Lightroom in particular -- meant that in my student days I did go without that extra beer on a fair few occasions. However, as a start-up website designer, this software became imperative to own and eventually paid for itself. A new service, Adobe Creative Cloud, was announced by the company in October, before the front became rather quiet and specific details were kept under guard. However, the online subscription service is back on board. Users can expect to pay $49.99 per month on a one-year contract for access to the cloud, which equates to $600 per year for the basic package. By subscribing to Creative Cloud, users will be able to use Adobe Creative Suite products on a desktop, mobile or tablet device. For those who aren't keen to invest thousands in software, if you plan to … [Read more...] about Adobe Creative Cloud

Editors' note, June 19, 2014: Updated with a tour of some of Photoshop CC's new features. In a recent briefing to prepare us for the annual barrage of Adobe announcements, one of Adobe's technology development people said of the company's app development, "These early experiments...are one of the first stages of constructing the core products. Sooner or later, mouse and keyboard won't be enough in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. We're trying to prepare ourselves for when that entire market gets disrupted. " To me, that's the theme of this year's Creative Cloud extravaganza. Yes, Adobe's offering up the usual updates to the desktop applications, major and minor.
