There's a small program from the Spybot AV folks, Spybot Anti-Beacon, that disables all of the annoying tracking issues with WinX.  A partial description from the site: Spybot Anti-Beacon for Windows 10 is a small utility designed to block and stop the various tracking (aka telemetry) issues that come with Windows 10.

The New Adobe Reader DC vs. Adobe Reader XI – should I update ?

Adobe and all its products part of the Creative Cloud have been pushing for users to save their documents, photos, and projects onto their cloud server so that you can access them, whether you're on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. With the conversion of Adobe Reader to Acrobat Document Cloud, you'll now be able to access features on your mobile device that were just previously found for desktop clients.

But the major change is also more on the user interface for the Android app, which is the first big update since 2010. The new Tools menu is easier to use and you can even see there the tasks that you frequently use. You can also now organize the pages in your PDF file, and even rotate and delete pages as well. Another update is that you can now use Adobe Fill & Sign to fill up, send and sign forms, if your device is on Android 5 and up.

The app itself is still free to download from the Google Play Store, but if you'd like to do more, you'd have to pay up through in-app purchases or sign up for a monthly subscription. For example, for the feature to create PDF files from scratch, you need to cough up $9.99. To export PDF files, you need to pay $1.99 a month. To be able to do use all the features, you can sign up for a Pro Document Cloud subscription for $24.99.

I found it interesting how closely these two questions were related.

Solid state hard drives and Adobe DC are designed for Cloud computing.

  Solid state hard drives are small So you would use cloud storage for your Files and pictures.

Adobe DC allows you to use Adobe programs and pay as you go

Not to worry Adobe DC will still allow you to read adobe files,

and it even seems to work a little better
