As a fan of Adobe Lightroom I was very pleased to see version 2 released and planned to buy an upgrade right away. I went to the Adobe store, only to find out that I have to pay US $129 to buy the upgrade from the South African store while it costs only US $99 from the US store, but I can’t buy there. That’s crazy; I want the download version not the box version so it’s not a question of shipping or higher logistics costs. In fact I will probably end up downloading from the very same site that US customers will.
So why the price difference? And where’s this global village I keep hearing about?
