    Well, Delicious Library is great to catalogue all your CDs, books, etc. Like what if you loan a book to your buddy but he doesn't return it and you forget about it, only to need it in a year and you don't remember the loaner? You can do this with this software. You can scan the barcode with your iSight cam.

    The games from Pangea are great and fun to play. RapidWeaver can help you create webpages. Disco is for burning CDs and DVDs. Etc.

    Heck! They're all a lot of fun to use! And it's a steal at that price.

    But I would google «ShapeShifter review» and see what comes up. Maybe you'll then know if the app is worth it. You might also read some Mac theme forums and see how the members talk about it in there.

    Well to be honest... I only got the Heist this a.m., haven't tried all the stuff in it, too much in it!

    Maybe you can check to see if there is a full-featured demo for a trial period?

    Oh and I forgot to mention iClip! This is like Mac OS X's Clipboard on steroids, man!

    I've haven't been sold on disco as of yet it seems like a neat app. but I don't know if its hand brake. I know that my macbook won't smoke. It says underage gfxcard, boo! I use toast and handbrake and mack the ripper. There are some cool lokking apps on the heist but I don't know if its for me.

    I've used Shapeshifter before and it seemed to work well. My big problem was that, IMHO, all of the themes for it SUCKED!

    I got the Macheist bundle as well...
    Shapeshifter is pretty nice, it took a while to find a theme that I'm happy with, but I'm using Purewhite at the moment at I love the different look & feel!

    is it just me or is it a bit ironic that on a mac you have to pay $20 but on a pc its free?
