MacUpdate is at it again, offering another awesome bundle of Mac applications for only $49.99. This is $447 of software if purchased separately. Every one of these applications is highly recommended. I personally use Littlesnitch daily and Rapidweaver weekly. That’s $110 of apps right there, which I could have purchased for only $49.99 with this bundle, and also received the other eight applications as gravy.

All applications are download-only. Once you purchase the bundle, you’ll get an URL with serial numbers to unlock them. All apps are available now. The offer expires at midnight on 12/17.

Again, this is a great deal, and would make a nice present for both new and seasoned Mac users. Purchasing through the link at the bottom of this post will help support this blog, at no extra cost to you (and we truly appreciate the support.)
The apps are:

Drive Genius 2 ($99): Currently the highest-rated disk utility on the market and used by Mac Geniuses at Apple Stores, Drive Genius diagnoses and repairs problems with your hard drive, optimizes your system, and much more.

Buyers will receive a link to download a bootable DVD image of the software to burn, which can be used to boot and fix any Mac that can run Mac OS X 10.5, including Apple’s newest laptops.
