'Might be nice for someone who didn't get TTP 5 or Parallels in one of the earlier MacHeist or MacUpdate bundles.

Wasn't the Macheist TTP version 4.5.3 - which isn't compatible with Leopard?
Was a Leopard compatible version in a past MacUpdate bundle?





The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

Really? I'm actually going to buy it. I haven't bought parallels since v2, and I'm not sure it even still works on my Macbook. TTP may be semi-useful. And I just got my Fujitsu ScanSnap installed, so Paperless might be useful.

Yeah. I think you're right.

Then again, I don't run TTP for drive-diagnostics. I only use it for hardware tests when I don't have access to an Apple Hardware Test or Service Diagnostic disc/image. IMHO, using TTP for anything other than a hardware-check is asking for trouble.

Then there's that cr@p they install surreptitiously on your computer (background app and pref pane) and the edit to the loginwindow.plist file (which is a security hole that Apple should F-ING CLOSE) if you run it while booted from your HD instead of the CD.

RZ, If you need paperless, it's like getting the other apps for free, so I say go for it. I already own a few of those apps, so not worth it to me.

Seems like useful stuff to me, and not filled with as many games or novelty apps as some of the bundles are. I'll likely bite.

Btw, BestBuy charges $150 for TTP alone!

Yup, I'd like to have the latest TTP, and I also want Posterino, and the DVD-ripping apps look interesting. Worth $50 for me.

The only things in the list that draw my interest are the DVD processing apps that do the job of MTR and Handbrake.

Does anybody have experience with RipIt and DVDRemaster Pro to comment on whether they would be worthwhile replacements for MacTheRipper and Handbrake?

The only specific issues I have now with MTR and HB is that it is sometimes difficult ripping episodes from commercial DVD sets containing a TV series. And when I make H.264 videos for my iPod, the chapter breaks made by HB cause a few seconds of silence in the audio at the break when played back.

They used to offer multiple bundle discount but, I didn't see that option. I emailed them 30 minutes ago but haven't heard back yet. If they advise that deal is still on, I'll post back.

I have DVD Remaster (upgraded to 5.0 before the deal - just my luck) and I find it excellent. OTOH, I don't do much DVD ripping. It filled the space that Mac the Ripper left when they stopped updating. I believe RipIt just takes the place of Fairmount.

I am strongly considering it just for these two programs. (Late Intel adopter.)
