Adobe has announced the launch of their new CS3 line of products containing new and improved versions of previous software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, etc (details on With new products comes new pricing… fair enough. However, prices for the same product (i.e. the mac design premium upgrade from CS2.0) go from 599$ for an upgrade in the US to 1’057$ in Switzerland and 1’134$ in France and Germany, the worse being 1’178 $ for the UK… not fair enough! (all prices excl. tax). Prices in Europe have always been a little higher, but 190% of the US price is pushing it!
