When I asked Bill Gates 17 years ago at the Windows XP launch to share his crystal ball on the hottest technology of the future his reply was instant. “Flexible screen display,” he said. This was when cell phones were in the flip stage, Samsung wasn’t a big player and six years before the first iPhone launched.

Today, at Adobe’s annual MAX creativity event in Las Vegas, the veritable software company announced updates and new software for its Creative Cloud subscription based service.

At Adobe MAX 2015 in Los Angeles today, Adobe outlined its vision for Creative Cloud — a “connected creative canvas” where people create and share their work from anywhere.
Adobe dazzled some 7,000 attendees with new powerful mobile apps. It showed how cloud-based Adobe CreativeSync allows users to save and share their work, app settings, tools and more, between multiple devises as well as with co-workers.
“The power to be creative is no longer for the few” said Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayan.
