Adobe, publishers of popular software titles such as Adobe Professional, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Dreamweaver, has significantly changed their software licensing model to make it economically prohibitive to continue providing these titles through My Virtual Computing Lab.  SUNY and UB have attempted to negotiate sustainable licensing terms with Adobe that would provide for continued use of these titles in UB’s labs for more than a year without success.
Students ponder their portable devices.
On February 9, the UBITName Manager, a self-service webpage used by UB students, faculty and staff to activate UBITNames and manage passwords, will receive some significant improvements. These improvements will help keep your information—and UB’s network—even safer.
