…The MacHeist Bundle is back?

MacHeist

This year, the MacHeist bundle includes 9 different apps, plus an additional app for the early birds, plus three more unlockable apps that will be available after certain sales goals are met.

This year’s bundle features a core lineup of a dozen award winning and popular apps, games and utilities that represent the cream of the crop from the Mac development community. Whether you’re interested in cooking a meal, or playing the best puzzle game of last year, or selling off an old item on eBay, the MacHeist bundle has you covered.

In addition, they’re donating 25% of each purchase to a partnering charity of your choice, so buying a bundle does more than just add to your app collection.

So what’s included in this year’s bundle?

  • iSale
  • Picturesque
  • SousChef
  • World of Goo
  • PhoneView
  • LittleSnapper
  • Acorn
  • Kinemac
  • WireTap Studio
  • Big Bang Board Games (Early Bird)
  • BoinxTV (Unlockable)
  • The Hit List (Unlockable)
  • Espresso (Unlockable)

If all of the sales goals are met and the full bundle gets unlocked, that equals more than $975 worth of Mac programs for just $39.

Hurry though, because this is a limited time offer, and once they’re gone, they’re gone!

…Misu is now 1.0?

Misu

If you haven’t already, check it out.

…Misu lets you transfer your iPod music for free?

Misu

Misu is a new iPod music transfer utility for Macs that makes it easy to transfer music between two iPods.

Simply select the source and the destination and let Misu go to work. It then compares the two iPods, figures out what’s missing, and syncs them together.

Currently it’s only in super-secret private beta mode, but courtesy of TUAW, the super-secret code that you’ll need to get a copy is 48372.

Plus, if you try out Misu during the beta phase, they’ll give you a free and licensed copy of the final version as a thank you. (This code is only good for today, but if you miss out, you can still get a free copy of Misu by becoming a fan of the Misu Facebook Page by the end of March.)

Cool.

…Google is giving presentations?

Google Docs Logo

Google gave a big FU to Microsoft this week with the addition to their Presentations app to the Google Docs family.

Designed to create presentations (similar to PowerPoint), it’s a free utility that completes the Office alternative.

Though it doesn’t have the features of the Microsoft offering, the price is hard to beat, and when Google gets involved, you know it’s going to be big.

Your move, Bill Gates, your move.

…Activity Monitor does more than you think?

Here’s a neat Mac trick: Open your Activity Monitor (it’s located in the utilities folder), right click on the dock icon (or ctrl click for you Mac purists), and select one of the available dock icons. The new icon can show you a variety of things in real time, including:

  • CPU Usage
  • CPU History
  • Network Usage
  • Disc Activity
  • Memory Usage

For those of you that want an easy way to peek under your computer’s hood from time to time just to see what’s going on in there, this little tweak is sure to help.
