Commenting on this 'cause I doubt anyone else will...

It's simply amazing how they can bundle so many pointless apps together. My hat is off to them.

I've never come across a bundle that was worth buying. I don't care if the software is "worth" $5,000, if it's junk I'm not buying it.

I have Cocktail for Mavericks... and these guys can't even update their app to include retina UI. I mean it's only been a year and a half... what a bunch of junk for $40.00 though.

----------

I only bought one of these bundle packages before. And the app I wanted, I can't even remember it's been so long, the app I wanted with the bundle got a major upgrade like 3 weeks later, and I ended up paying for that upgrade. I'd have been better of just buying that one app as that's the only one I really wanted.

Watch out, because major updates are soon to follow, and you will not get them, you will be locked into upgrade pricing from then on.

The quality of bundles are going down. This has to be the worst MacUpdate bundle to date.

I have to agree with you.
Out of all those only Paragon NTFS is actually useful. The rest is just... the rest.
And if you buy it alone, you can save $10 or more* versus the MacUpdate Bundle price!
