Adobe (ADBE) takes the wraps off Creative Suite 6 and Creative Cloud. CS6 suites will sell for $1,899-$2,599, whereas annual subscriptions to Creative Cloud, which give users access to all CS6 apps to go with web services, will cost just $50/month (as expected). The aggressive pricing for Creative Cloud has led some to worry about revenue transition issues, but given Adobe's weak sales growth, it may be a risk worth taking. (previous)

    Adobe, like many other tech-important companies, just doesn't get it.

     

    Sales are falling because a HUGE segment of their customers, namely small-to-mid sized biz is closing in droves!

     

    And those that are left are having to make things last much longer, which means they will continue to use older versions of (still working for their needs) software and NOT spend $2k on a fancy toy.

     

    My biz switched to openoffice a couple years ago, mainly in defiance to MicroSoft and their continuous, new, overpriced, releases.

     

    Best move I've ever made, even if OO leaves a little to be desired.

     

    Small biz America is in the midst of an ever-deepening depression brought on by ever-increasing regulations, mandatory costs and lack of customers because other small businesses are going under or closing.

     

    Good luck Adobe going forward. Will be interesting to see if releasing more expensive toys while customers bleed out will work for them.
