As a US guy, I really have NO exposure to different pricing outside of the US and am very uninformed about it. However, I will add to one thing here and hazard a guess on the other...

1 - $29 is an introductory offer to existing users as an incentive to go with a subscription. My understanding (again possibly flawed) is that the $29 is ongoing until you decide to turn it off. At that point, whatever the going rate is ($49, $69 whatever depending on what you have) would be what you get going forward from there. In other words, we're trying to give everyone a very sweetheart deal but once you do, I think you want to stay with it otherwise the price will go up. Even at $49.00 per month, that's basically $600 per year, that's a lot less than a shrinkwrap copy - more so when you consider that we will have a new version every year. The value of it is pretty cool and you get access to web and design tools which if you need once a year, are great to dip into and have.

2 - pricing around the world: I really have no idea but the VAT is definitely a big part of it. If I were to guess at the other $4 per month (or whatever it is), then I would say that it is due to exchange rates and Adobe maintaining offices and distribution points around the world. I know it stinks but it works the same way around the world. I understand I can get a Mercedes-Benz a lot cheaper in Germany than in the US - go figure. ;-)

Again as a disclaimer - I know nothing of Adobe finance, world finance rules or any such thing. Just trying to offer up a possible explanation.
