…MacHeist is offering up a Retail Bundle?

MacHeist Retail Bundle

A new MacHeist bundle is on its way, and according to the Teaser that was just posted on the MacHeist site, it’s going to be “12 Top Mac Apps…and a price that’s a steal!”

The video’s a bit tough to make out, but it looks like the applications include Cha-Ching, CoverSutra, XSlimmer, Awaken, Nanosour 2, Bugdom 2, WingNuts2, WriteRoom, DevonThink, EarthDesk, TextExapnder, and iClip.

If a few of those sounded like what you’ve been looking for, and $49 doesn’t seem out of your price range, then you should definitely keep an eye out for when this bundle goes live.

Can you afford to pass up this deal?

…Sony and Apple share?

Sony And Apple

Why waste a good idea?

Apparently, Sony (which recently ripped off the bunnies for their latest Bravia ad) felt that Apple’s iPod arrangement was going to be too tough to beat, so they just replaced the Nanos with their own DSC-T2 cameras for their latest press photos.

Don’t feel too bad for Apple though, as they’ve been known to do the same thing from time to time as well.

I guess they should both feel flattered; right?

…Thailand hates Ferraris?

Smashed Ferrari 456 GT

In Thailand, thieves steal the pieces and parts off of expensive rides, then buy what’s left at a police auction for a reduced price, reassemble, and sell the cars off for profit.

To send a message to these car launderers, the Thai government staged a smashing of a stripped Ferrari 456 GT. By bulldozing over the $1.2 million ride, they hope to show that this (very creative) type of stealing won’t be tolerated.

…Microsoft wants you to steal Office?

The Ultimate Steal

Here’s an interesting move by Microsoft: They figure that most college students are smart enough to steal a copy of Office Ultimate 2007 and get away with it, so instead of getting $0 for all of their hard work, the ‘soft guys decided to let students ‘steal’ a copy for only $59.95. (The regular price is $679!)

It’s a digital copy, so they must download to install, but considering that’s what students would need to do for a ‘stolen’ copy anyways, you’ve got to assume that downloading isn’t much of a deterrent anymore.

All you need is a .edu email and .5 units.

I wonder how much a unit at the local city college would cost…
