Goodfellas Come to Mountain View
Adobe to digital publishers: "F--- you, pay me."
Adobe practically invented desktop publishing, and now they're set to destroy it with outrageous fees for InDesign:
That equates to £7003 per year as a minimum spend — irrespective of how many copies you sell, or how regularly you publish — and that’s on top of the one-off charge for the new 5.5 version of InDesign: £94 as an individual upgrade from CS5, £238 for a suite upgrade from CS5, and considerably more if, like me, you’re upgrading from CS4: £190 for InDesign on its own and £619 for the whole suite. Brand new, InDesign CS5.5 costs £714 and the suite costs £1810. That’s what you’ll be paying to Adobe.
The prices listed are in British pounds, so just multiply by two to find out what Adobe will charge Americans. Outrageous.
