Global recession - high prices = surprise?
Since the absorption of Macromedia into the fold and the iniquitous bundling of products Adobe has become one of the most price inflated product sets on the market. While it is possible to purchase single products it has become prohibitively expensive to do so. If this price reflected a world class customer service and prompt bug-fixing then I could understand it but this hasn't been the case. The long standing arguments over global price differentials is still raging with lots of words spoken but very little said.
Maybe now the heads of the departments there (especially Marketing and Finance) can be awoken roughly and attempt to remove the laurel indentations from their faces and wake up to the fact that people are just not going to pay those prices any more, especially if they don't fix product problems in a timely fashion.
