Why now?

THIS is annoying.

I just realized that I want CS5 production premium.

I realized that this is the type of work I want to get into, and this will be my toolset. It’s perfect, the student edition is US$500, which is equal to NZ$700. Guess how much cash I have on hand.

So why is this annoying? Simple. I was just about to plonk my NZ$700 for an iPad. Seriously, this realization could not come at a more conflicting time.

I want the iPad, but I think CS5 is in order. Hey, Wolverine, good selling me the software, but loose the chops. (If you didn’t get that, watch the CS5 launch video.)
