Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen refuses to answer a question about why his company is price gouging Australian customers.

In a press conference in Sydney today, Adobe chief executive Shantanu Narayen refused to answer questions about how the company can justify charging Australians up to $1,400 more for its traditional software than US residents, instead pushing his view that Adobe's Creative Cloud software, which is broadly harmonised with US pricing, is the future for customers.

Recently, Adobe, Microsoft, and Apple were summoned to appear before a hearing to justify their charging higher prices to Australian consumers.

After watching that vid, in summary that spokesman is simply saying that their most profitable way (for both customer and Adobe) to deliver a solution is over cloud solutions.
Nicko - February 16, 2013 at 11:43am's clear that they like too many companies in Australia over charge customers in both residential and B2B sectors. It's always been that way and that is why trade between us Australians and the Asian tigers is important- because of cost of goods sold. This guy is skirting the issue because he knows its unfair pricing. Why he won't simply admit is because it would hurt their brand of course. The fact is companies with great product can do this. Cloud solutions may solve a lot of the intangible products but as for rubber dog shit(?), that's always gonna be cheaper mile for mile, outta Hong Kong! ;)

It would be cheaper for a fuckin' Aussie to just off himself. Much better for the rest of the fuckin' world, too!

The only one who should be "offing" themselves, is you. Oxygen thief.
