…Mac Mix will save you some cash?

Mac Mix

Mac Heads take note: Mac Mix could be your chance to save some serious cash on a bundle of the best Mac applications (Maclications?).

Unlike other shareware bundle events, which offer a discount bundle of pre-selected apps, Mac Mix lets you choose your own bundle. The end result is a bundle that has no fillers, and contains only the applications that you want and/or need.

Obviously there’s got to be a catch, so the discounts increase as you buy more apps. Any single app starts at 10% off, but if you buy three apps, that quickly climbs to 30%, and by 12 apps, you’re saving a full 75% off of the retail price. With 28 apps to choose from, picking out 12 good ones shouldn’t be too hard.

So what’s available?

Highlights include Parallels, MacGourmet, Forklift, HoudahGeo, TextExpander, Comic Book Lover, and much, much more.

Each app is categorized into one of five groups (productivity, web tools, image and video, system enhancements, and entertainment) and you can read up on each app before buying, including a star based rating system, and a bullet point feature list.

And if that’s not enough, part of the proceeds go towards planting trees to help out the environment, so you can probably get a write-off from the purchase of a Mac Mix if your tax guy is willing to be creative.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Eat Drink or Die?

Eat Drink or Die

Eat Drink or Die is the third site from the creators of Funny or Die and Shred or Die, and focuses, surprisingly enough, on food.

The site works by using a rating system to pick out the quality (delicious) content, and killing the rest. The rating system breaks down as follows:

In addition to daily shows and exclusive content, Eat Drink or Die also breaks their videos down by topic, so that you can see what’s popular in any of these channels:


It’s not just videos though, as Eat Drink or Die also features exclusive blogs that you can read between meals, such as:


Apparently the ‘or Die’ crew has got their formula down, because it works well, and delivers you fantastic, and often exclusive content, in an easy to sort and understand manner.

Hear that YouTube?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Kongregate?


Kongregate is trying to create “the leading online hub for players and game developers to meet up, play games, and operate together as a community”. Currently in Beta; Kongregate already hosts 553 games, and has hundreds of gamers playing together at any one time. Though anyone can submit a game, a user rating system ensures that only the best games float to the top of the charts. In addition to regular playability, each game is wrapped in community features such as chat and challenges that allow you to play alongside your friends. Plus, developers receive a share of the microtransaction and advertising revenue, and retain the full rights to their games, so they are encouraged to write up some good stuff. If you’re looking for a place to kill some time, Kongregate is it.


…The TIGRS rating system is confusing?

Little Gamers has a great take on the newly released TIGRS (The Independent Game Rating System) icons:

There’s also a desktop wallpaper sized version of the Sony one on the site, so be sure to check it out.

…doodleBug shows you the drawing process?


doodleBug’s “oodles of doodles” offer a Web 2.0 style sneak peak/behind the scenes look at the creation of some very beautiful pieces of art. The site features a myriad of black and white drawings, and when you click on them, you can watch the creation of each piece, line by line. There’s even a rating system so that you can view only the best. A neat concept indeed.
