    Notebook 3.0 upgrade is a free upgrade to anyone who purchased Notebook in 2008.




    So, who do we unleash the dogs on? The company that will not honor the promise that users with a valid license purchased in 2008 can have a free upgrade, or MacHeist for selling us software with "second class" status?

    This is not unusual, other companies have also instituted similar rules.

    You got the app at a huge discount. This is part of the way they recover the cost. Sort of like how some companies sell academic licenses of their software, but it is not eligible for upgrades. Consider the MacHeist another form of special license.

    I am unaware of any legal documentation from the sellers foretelling of this.

    i do recall reading this somewhere on the macheist site. maybe it was in the forums. notebook isn't the only app released by macheist with this limitation.

    (ie. i'm pretty sure that this is all above board, and that we were informed of this prior to purchase. however I can't be 100% sure.)

    same happened with Speed Download. The guys at MH called them all kind of names and a sanbox fight broke out. Then we found out these 'businessmen' at macheist did the whole deal without any kind of contract. So don't expect much.

    It looks like the folks at Agile are more generous. As far as I can tell, MacHeist-purchased 1Passwd purchasers are eligible for their Thanksgiving free-copy-to-a-friend offer.

    Good find! I forgot about this when I got the e-mail. I just sent it to a friend who I believe will enjoy it.
