Dr Mumbo Adobe’s masterclass in how not to hold a press conference March 8, 2013 5:32 8 Dr Mumbo always enjoys it when a press conference goes astray. And he’s three weeks behind on this video, shot by Renai LeMay of Delimiter, who gave the CEO of Adobe a hard time over the product being priced more highly in Australia than the US.

Reply Jonathan Lee Jones 11 Mar 13 A simple yes or no question gets totally snowballed here. Universal pricing in regards to the outrageous cost of software programs that are superseded so quickly in this new age would be a major step ahead for adobe. It would also reduce piracy.

I was absolutely hooked on Photoshop, but now run old versions, as in the words of Michael Clayton. ” tell em they’re dreamin” It would be brilliant marketing practice to slash their prices to be a third or less to become the must-have software and sell high volumes. Instead I have found a very good competitors alternative for $100 Cannot work out how overpriced low volume sales help Adobe. Reply John Grono 11 Mar 13 Ahhh yes. Michael Clayton, the famous Michael Caton ventriloquist. Reply Jules 12 Mar 13 Say creative cloud again. SAY CREATIVE CLOUD AGAIN! I dare you, I double dare you.
