blog Wondering why Adobe suddenly harmonised some of its Creative Cloud Australian pricing this week? Well, the move may have something to do with the company’s summons to appear before the parliamentary committee examining Australian IT price markups. It may also have something to do with a visit to Sydney by the vendor’s global president and chief executive Shantanu Narayen. Adobe today invited the press to attend a launch tomorrow morning in Sydney with the executive:
“Adobe’s President and CEO Shantanu Narayen will be joined by Senator Stephen Conroy and NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell to officially open Adobe’s new Sydney office and demonstration facility.”
Delimiter will be in attendance with a video camera in tow to watch the chief executive take questions from the media about … what else? The fact that Adobe charges up to $1,400 more for the exact same software sold in Australia, compared with the same product in the US. Let’s hope Narayen can come up with some satisfactory answers: We haven’t heard any so far.
