Apparently, Adobe CC is more expensive if you use the Chrome web browser, can if you use Safari or Firefox. Yet is the proper price if you use Chrome on a Chromebook.

I suspect this is another reflection of the switch to "commerce via algorithm" which is were we're all going to live (regardless of whether or not we like it) for the rest of our lives.

The iTunes store "code for sale" model - and it's subsequent rapid and massive success changed everything. Now we shop in an on-line space where product access lives in a weird intersection of IT, Sales, HTML, Server updates, Search and who knows what else.

Two prices accessed via two separate web approaches will likely become the rule, not the exception, since different web access systems update or refresh differently.

Add to that the complexity of global currency exchange issues and economic differences between countries in this global economy, and the whole thing becomes a rats nest.

I can easily seeimaginewhere a product vendor might be able to hugely increase incremental sales out of a smaller peripheral market by offering the product at a lower price - but then has to consider that with the internet, to allow that can now be "seen" by players in larger markets that don't need the discount in order to drive sales numbers will result in a lot of anger. "Why can editors buy this program significantly cheaper in Ecuador than we can here in England???" may be discussions we see in the future where the price of an item can be changed for a region, a buyer class, or for an hour, then returned just by adjusting the servers.

The whole concept of "retail" is changing.

It's always been an abstract and pretty arbitrary construct.

Now is arbitrary AND virtual and as ephemeral as a cloud..

Good luck in the new system.

I will take a gallon of milk for two loafs of bread, please. Will throw in a pack of sugar for good measure. :-)

I'm already there. We trade jam for eggs that another editor has an abundance of...because they have chickens.
