Newegg's Shell Shocker needs many exclamation points: Adobe Photoshop Elements for $49


Newegg has the most ridiculous names for its sales. For example, today we have SHELL SHOCKER, written in some aggressive-looking font, along with a picture of a broken shell, to drive home the theme. As for the deal itself, I spy Adobe Photoshop Elements for $49, a full 44 percent off the regular price.

That leads me to wonder: what are the piracy rates for Photoshop? I don’t know if I’ve seen a computer in the last five years without Photoshop installed, and I can guarantee that Random College Student or Friend of a Friend didn’t shell out the hundreds of dollars necessary to buy the application.

And to quote the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Whoa, shell shocked!
