Is The Mac App Store The End of Bundling? I Don't Think So

"The Mac App Store is set to change the way you download and use a lot of software on your Mac, but one thing I hope it doesn't change is the tradition of the Mac software bundle sale."

I doubt this will be the end of bundling, especially if sites such as The Mac Sale and MacBasket keep getting good programs in their bundled options. I have used bundled software sites in the past to purchase older versions of software that I want to try out but if I am sure of what I want to buy, I normally go for the latest version. I can see myself buying the new versions via the Mac App Store, as well as retail outlets and other online stores such as Amazon.com, while still looking for bargains at the bundled sites. I think there is plenty of room for sites that bundle software to work alongside the Mac App Store, but what are your thoughts?

First MacBundle, Now MacSale

"You must have seen the banner ad in our sidebar for a while now, and been wondering what exactly was going on. Truth be told I myself didn't know much about the deal except it was going to cost $50 a piece, and set to go live on the 3rd of August. In case you didn't realise, it's the 3rd already, and The Mac Sale has gone live."

Monday we told you about the MacBundle sale, today we have the Mac Sale. Usually you can find at least one of the programs in the bundle that are worth trying out, maybe not the case of the MacBundle, but usually. In this case, in my opinion, there are a couple that I'm interested in such as Interarchy and Scribbles. I'm still a bit underwhelmed at the assortment so I'm still on the fence as to the value I would be getting for the $50. This article gives a pretty good run down of what is included, and the sale only goes until August 18th so I guess I need to decide quick. What do you think?
