Default The Great Adobe Ripoff

In the UK we're used to paying higher prices for US software but I was quite amazed at the price difference for upgrading Creative Suite CS3 standard from CS.

In the US I could upgrade for $399. In the UK Adobe charge £492.32 (that's $1,007.31 at today's exchange rate)!

At least, that's the price if I want to wait 7 days for them to ship it to me. If I want to download it to use immediately then the price is even higher.

Unfortunately, now I'm half way through setting a couple of books in the demo version of InDesign CS3 I have no choice but to pay up -- but it does leave a bitter taste that we should be ripped off to that extent.
