    Photoshop CS6 for MAC

    Why is it, it's £649 in the Apple store and from here:

    Adobe Photoshop CS6 Mac Full Edition - Electronic Download | iSoftware

    only £329

    What am I missing ?

    Because it's 'cooler' from the Apple store and will make you look hip.

    Hmm.. probably because they ramp the cost of everything up, all the time!

    I was thinking it was because it was for two licenses but I don't see that stated on the Apple Store - may have missed it....

    ~£660 is what Photoshop normally costs from Adobe. Amazon sell it for £647.83 and Apple are only charging a fiver more than Adobe.

    iSoftware's price sounds a bit suspect?

    Just read the terms etc - the software needs to phone home every 30 days so if you decide not continue paying anymore you can't use the software. Sounds like a business model that EA knock out. One big Con.
    Then they wonder why people go and visit sites like TPP.....
