    I was checking out Toast 7 and from what I could tell it seems like it includes the same features as popcorn 2. Is that correct or are there still some features in popcorn 2 that are not included in Toast 7? I am just trying to decide if I need to buy both programs.

    Toast 7 includes Popcorn 1 ...Popcorn 2 lets you compress video for the iPod and PSP ..1 does not

    But I have no doubt that as soon ass Toast goes universal, those will be added to it.

    Come on Roxio get Toast 7.5 out ASAP :rolleyes: Lazy ****ards.

    If the only additional functionality Popcorn 2 has over Popcorn 1 is converting files to iPod format, then why not just buy Toast 7 (which has Popcorn 1 included) and use iSquint for all your iPod-converting needs?

    I certainly wouldn't buy Popcorn 2 if I already had Toast 7 ...but it's good to see that they are now offering "upgrade" pricing.

    I'm just worried that toast 7 will never be updated to universal binary ..causing me to have to upgrade later this year when I get my new iMac.

    Ah I see, yes, valid point. Sorry, I'm not in the same boat as you since I still have my PPC Mac. Although in a few years, I'll probably have the opposite problem to worry about unless I upgrade to an Intel Mac... :eek: ;)

    They say the UB is in beta testing. It seems to be really, really slow coming out though.

    Sure... if you have a dinky piece of shareware written in Cocoa... then it is pretty easy... but an app like Toast that is many years old and does device management and has encoding and decoding... not a trivial task I'm sure.

    It's taken a while probably because it's a big friggin job.

    Exactly. Hence why Adobe is not recompiling CS2 to be UB, and is instead just going UB with CS3 in Q2 07. :cool:
