So I was cruising through eBay this morning before work and spotted some Macromedia stuff on eBay.
WTF? People are bidding on Studio 8
and even Studio MX.
Then a little digging and I see why.. Adobe has (on their US store) a $600 difference between a full version and an upgrade version of CS3 Web Standard. So if someone buys a legitimate (and that’s the key) license of Studio MX, MX2004, or Studio 8 on eBay for $500 and then uses it to upgrade then they’ve saved $100. Not too shabby if you can get a real legitimate license off of eBay.
Here’s somebody asking $349 for an Educational license of Studio MX .. The last time I checked you couldn’t upgrade from educational to a full version and the educational version of CS3 Web Standard is $399.. hmm.
Now.. I wonder what’s up with people buying Flash Media Server on eBay? Lots of paypal cash laying around I guess.
