Rafael Benetti Rohden: ??
I believe Darren refers to X-Rite's decision to use Apple's OS-X "Lion" update as a windfall event by refusing to offer a discounted update to their long-in-the-tooth color profiling software. I invested in the whole i1 Professional system several years ago, which was quite expensive ($1,200?) but has been very useful and reliable. But this week I learned that X-Rite has decided that customers like me who want to update to Lion will have to invest another $500+ to buy their new "Publish" software. They're offering no low-cost upgrade. As far as X-Rite is concerned we're new faces.
Needless to say, this discovery has frosted my cake. I'm strongly considering my alternatives.
