  1. You might be interested to read this conversation I had with Adobe Ian.

  2. Thanks for the link Bruce, that definitely made interesting reading!

    I can fully understand some operating costs being more in the UK, but looking at Karen Haslem’s following calculation:

    Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Standard
    UK upgrade price excluding VAT: ????289
    US upgrade price excluding sales tax: $240
    US upgrade price in pounds: ????121.41
    How much extra is that? ????167.59
    Percentage extra: 57.99%

    Can Adobe really justify that massive mark-up, and not only that, but the ridiculous variance in these mark-ups? It just doesn’t make sense!
