    I got a $50 Apple Store gift card, so I was wondering if anyone knew of any cool programs or games for under $50 that are available either through Apple's website, or an Apple Store.

    If not, can I buy an iTunes card with the Apple Gift Card?

    What do you mean by cool? Try and be a bit more specific if you want an answer.

    Well, I'm thinking either a nice little game, or maybe a music or graphics program to muck around in. I really don't know what I'm looking for, if I knew I would probably have found it.

    I don't think you can use it at the Apple Store, but for CSS CSSEdit is a GREAT app for $30. Maybe the creator of it would trade ya though?

    you're more likely to get a good game by trading the certificate for the game in the marketplace.

    The Warcraft 3 Battle Chest! Most addicting game I've ever played. :)

    to address the second part of your inquiry: yes, you can buy an iTunes card with a regular gift card.

    There's all kinds of great software out there, it really depends on what you like doing.

    I bought Rapidweaver for just over $30 and it's one of my favorites.

    That's MacBook Pro to you! ;)

    I actually have that program, that's what I made my website in. I love it.

    My apologies. I hope I didn't offend your computer.

    What type of games do you like? FPS, RPG, RTS, MMO, ILA? the last one stands for "I love Acronyms"

    You are forgiven. :)

    I like pretty much any kind of game, except sports games. Right now I'm looking at Anime Studio for a school project. Is that a good program?

    or if you're truly 1337, you won't spend a single cent on software downloads. treat yourself to getting an ipod classic (i have an 80 gig now, it's ****ing amazing).

    Actually, somehow you gave me the idea to put it towards Leopard. I don't know why I didn't think of that before. Thanks. :)
