    Thanks for the reminder. Curious to see what's in the next bundle.

    It's live, and it's VERY weak.

    More appealing to me than the last bundle. CoverScout and RapidWeaver and RipIt for $20? Might be worth a try.

    I am waiting to see if they get close to the 50K to unlock rapidweaver. If not I won't bite.

    Yeah, that is what I am thinking as well. The base bundle is pretty weak otherwise. The only things of interest are RipIt and Cover Scout. I never used RipIt but Fairmount works fine for DVD ripping and its free so I am not sure if Ripit even offers anything of value to the bundle.

    However, if Tales and Rapidweaver get unlocked it would seem like a good deal.

    I hadn't noticed originally that RapidWeaver was to be unlocked. I'll reconsider buying until the full suite is unlocked.

    Those little Mac games they toss in are always lame. The music player might be handy -- I've got a soft spot for these iTunes add-ons.

    That sale you link to via DF is intriguing with Pathfinder and MacGourment.

    OK, with Tweetie (and Tweetie 2 Beta / full release) included I had to buy it, finally. Without Tweetie and I would have skipped it.

    Cover Scout worked a charm tho, found about 200 covers I was missing!

    That retweet shit to get the three apps tho needs to Die in a Fire.
