Probably a repost, but I found this pretty funny.

If we understand Narayen right, he seems to be implying that Australian customers are being charged a high price for traditional boxed software in order to nudge them towards Adobe's subscription-based cloud service instead.
That, or this is his way of saying: "Because most retail copies are pirated, we don't care for reasonable prices. we'll just focus more on the business/enterprise customer, they've got deeper pockets."

This. Quite stupid and unfair that the prices are higher in Australia and what is even worse is that there is no justification. Even if there was one, it still doesn't make sense.

This from one of the "commentators" of the video:

I like this one comment someone posted.
Quote:
Reporter: "So Mr. Narayen, can you tell us about the rationale behind Creative Suite pricing in Australia?"

Narayen: "Well Mr. Reporter, A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth's atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc."
I don't really care about this topic, just thought the comment was funny.

"The cloud is a very attractive and great value to the customer!"

No one has a hard drive anymore, so you must use the cloud! All hail the creative cloud!

Not surprising coming from Adobe. They are one of my most hated companies, up there with the likes of Sony and EA. They constantly spew out junk products, usually at a high price. I'm not just talking about their consumer/business level products like Flash, Adobe Director, and Creative Suite. Their enterprise level products are actually even worse.

There's a reason why I still use my educational version of Creative Suite CS1 from 2004. Even though the thing is riddled with bugs it's not worth spending the $500 (educational) to upgrade to the latest pathetic version of Creative Suite.

I think what we have to look at here, is that they have a creative cloud solution which may prove to be of some value to you, as a customer.

Moving forward, I'm sure he's sure that when all things are equal, you'll come to realise that what he's offering will more than satisfy any needs/squash any doubts you may have had.

am I doin' it?

This is untrue, Adobe still screws Aussie corporations. I would know, I worked at a place that was going to replace all its outdated software with adobe stuff. All I ever heard being said was "it's cheaper in the states"

I mean I realize 1,400 for most corporations and companies doesn't mean much but why is it that much higher. The question isn't about how much it's worth to the companies, it's why does it cost higher in Australia than other Countries. I want to beat this guy senseless.

These huge companies are run by absolute big suites, aren't they? I just chalk it up to being "too big to fail" and being grand fathered into their market shares. Adobe, Samsung, Verizon, Google, etc. have been doing absolutely ******ED things lately but it just doesn't effect them like it would a normal company because they are simply too big to feel it. It's comical and sad that somebody like this can rake in almost a mill a year. A.m.a.z.i.n.g.
