An investigation into Olympus Corp started in October after former CEO, Michael Woodford, exposed a major scandal. Results of the investigation have rocked the company and now include the arrest of 9 former executives and bankers according to Reuters.
 
TOKYO, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Japanese police and prosecutors have arrested seven men, including the former president of Olympus Corp and ex-bankers over a $1.7 billion accounting fraud -- one of the country's biggest corporate scandals.
 
Tokyo prosecutors arrested ex-president Tsuyoshi Kikukawa, former executive vice president Hisashi Mori and former auditor Hideo Yamada on suspicion of violating the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, officials said on Thursday.

On Jan 16th, Nikon sent a letter stating that "Nikon Inc. has decided that it will no longer make repair parts available for purchase by repair facilities that have not been authorized by Nikon, Inc. to perform camera repairs." All Nikon repairs will be handled exclusively by Nikon authorized repair facilities.
 
As you would expect, many are not happy with this decision - including ifixit.org. (thanks Huy)

B&H has Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium for Mac and Windows for only $799.00 shipped. That is a HUGE $900.00 off!
 
If you add up the value of the individual components of this package, the deal shows its amazingness:
 
Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended: $899.95
Adobe Illustrator CS5: $560.00
Adobe Flash Professional: $689.95
Adobe Flash Catalyst: $399.00 (Adobe Store price)
Adobe Premiere Pro (with Adobe OnLocation and Encore): $525.00 (at $200 off)
Adobe After Effects: $899.00
Adobe Audition CS5.5: $339.95
 
Purchased individually, these products would cost over $4,312.85 (the prices I list are the lowest of the Mac and Windows versions). Any two of the base applications would cost well over the purchase price of this entire package. Great deal.
 
Get Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium at B&H before this deal expires on Mar 2nd. Or while supplies last.
