    Howdy all,

    For those of you who have bought the first two bundles, you already know about MacHeist. For those that don't, here's the scoop:

    You can buy 12 great applications at over an 80% discount. The list includes:

    iClip - $30 retail
    CoverSutra - $23 retail
    Awaken - $13 retail
    Cha-Ching - $40 retail
    Xslimmer - $12 retail
    WriteRoom - $25 retail
    DEVONthink Personal - $40 retail
    Wallet - $15 retail
    Overflow - $15 retail

    and 3 great Pangea games:
    Enigmo - $20 retail
    Nanosaur 2 - $25 retail
    Bugdom 2 - $30 retail

    Altogether, well over $250 worth of software for only $49. The offer's good for a month, so get it while it's hot

    I already got a bunch of these in the last bundle. Why are they including the same stuff again? :confused: It doesn't make sense for people who've bought before.

    This is considered the "best of" bundle. It's not a new MacHeist, like MacHeist III, just a bundle of the best of the first two bundles.

    Does that make sense? All I know is that these are really good programs - and though I have most of the apps from the second bundle, I'll still buy it for the apps I missed in the first.

    I don't really see how it can be considered a "best of" bundle when there have only been two previous bundles. It seems more like a gimmick to milk more money out of the same software that was already offered.

    It could be just a holdover until the next MacHeist is released, with new software and such. I know a lot of people regret missing out on some of the programs, and so this would be to get them into the loop.

    Also, this bundle is hitting retail stores soon after the internet sales of this are over, which would attract the software purchasers who don't rely on the internet for their software.

    I'm waiting for the MacUpdate promo in a few days. Much better selection this time around.

    I'm a little hesitant about the MacUpdate bundle. Yeah, the apps are pretty good, and non-repeats, but the price is kinda steep. Bundles usually sell for the $40-$50 range; MacUpdate's trying something really new here, and I'm not sure how well it will work.

    Not to mention, their ad in MacWorld is almost a complete rip-off of the MacHeist ad.
