How to Create PDF Files for Little or No Money
I am always amazed at how fast the technology world changes. A few years ago, the only method of creating PDF (Portable Document Format) files was to pay $300 for Adobe Acrobat. Indeed, Adobe created a great market for this product when it gave away the reader free of charge and then charged a high price for the matching program that creates PDF files. It reminds me of the story of Gillette's making millions by giving away razors free of charge and then making a big profit on the sale of razor blades. For several years, Adobe raked in millions of dollars as the only company to offer a program to create PDF files.
Today's PDF creation programs are often easier to use than Adobe Acrobat and yet produce equally good results. Prices range from free to a fraction of Abobe's program.
