    How does this work?

    I am considering upgrading my copy of DreamweaverMX 2004 to the latest version...

    On the Adobe shop site the pricing is given as:

    Ship the box to me... 180.95
    Download... 186.34

    So it costs more to download...

    How can that be more expensive than producing all the packaging and shipping it to me?

    Or am I missing something here?

    I don't get that at all. I had the same thing on amazon the other day: Buy an album for 8 (estimate values here, can''t remember precisely because I didn't buy it!!) and wait three to five days for it to be shipped FOC. Or download immediately for.... 12!!?

    I wondered if they are screwing extra money on the downloads because they assume people who are willing to go for the downloads want it in a hurry....

    Or buy the album to be delivered, then pirate a copy in the meantime.

    I read an article about this recently, and the new business model the majority of companies are moving to are higher costs for digital downloads.

    Why: Companies assume people want what they want now, and don't want to wait, so they charge that little bit extra for the privilege. I am impatient and would quite easily pay that extra cost for digital download, and not having to wait for it to arrive.
