In this NYT blurb about the upcoming Adobe CS3 suite, CEO Bruce Chizen states:
Our customer is not typically price sensitive. The cost of the tool isn’t what’s critical — it’s the productivity and what their output can be. They want to pay for value as long as we deliver innovative features that allow them to be more productive and creative.
As John Gruber over at Daring Fireball says, the translation of this is basically “We think we can charge whatever we want.”
Here’s an idea. Charge less for your products and the smaller companies and *especially independent contractors* won’t resort to bootlegging your software.
Photoshop is a standard. If I don’t have a copy of Photoshop, I can’t do my work, and I’m not even a designer, as such, anymore. I’m the guy that takes the Photoshop files and turns them into web pages. But I can’t do that without Photoshop, and Adobe products are easily the most expensive software I have to pay for, well beyond the price of everything else.

The first episode of the new TV version of TAL is available for viewing online. This is an excellent marketing approach. I don’t expect the whole series to end up like this, but this is a good start.

If you work with any Six Apart projects (Movable Type, TypePad, LiveJournal, Vox) and you haven’t looked around the [Six Apart code repository](http://code.sixapart.com/), it might be worth your while.
This post is testing a plug-in that cross-posts from my Movable Type installation to my [Vox blog](http://dmccreath.vox.com).
Update: [It posted correctly](http://dmccreath.vox.com/library/post/testing-the-postvox-movable-type-plug-in.html). However, someone on the SixApart ProNet list mentioned that it might not support updating (which wouldn’t surprise me). Testing this now.
Update 2: Nope. The update is not reflected on the Vox blog. Still, it’s pretty nice, and gives you the option of posting only the excerpt to Vox.

A beautiful little blog design. Scrub the rainbow.
