As reported by Alan Murphy, an unmarked van carrying $150,000 (£100,000) worth of Nikon gear destined for the Dublin NPS Roadshow was stolen sometime before 10:00 on Sat night. Taken in the heist were demo Nikon D4 & Nikon 800 DSLRs.
The stolen equipment will likely be sold. Download the full inventory list with serial numbers here.
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.
