I still remember Toast with Jam.... Loved the naming. Was useful when I burned a lot of CDs, but not so much anymore.

iMazing + ExpanDrive + Paragon Bundle make this worth the price.

I am intrigued by Sparkle. It looks really nice for making static websites.

But what about dynamic websites? Can I build a forum in it? A Q&A website like StackOverflow? An entire application?

Will it at least help with those things?

Take a look at this MW review from a few months ago. One of my friends and I tried it out, found it a bit lacking in features. The dev has a trial version FWIW.

Toast is an interesting leader considering most Macs don't come with an optical drive. Boom 1 abandoned its customers. Great software, but terrible service.

If you need file management more robust than the Finder, you can't do much better than Devon Think. If you are a student, buy it directly from them and save a few bucks. If anything else on this list peeks your interest you should grab the bundle. Unsure of DevonThink? Check their website for a 100 hour trial.

I still use toast fairly often, (External BluRay, DVD burnders) and just as often for disk images. I know I could use disk utility for disk images, but I have toast so I use Toast, I like customizing the disk images (how they open, backgrounds, etc.) and not sure if you can do that in Disk Utility.

I won't comment on the quality/features of this particular app (I've never used it), but if someone just needs a simple tool for controlling fan speed/monitoring temperature of components, smcFanControl ('http://www.eidac.de/?p=260') is free and has been really good about keeping up with OS X releases and compatibility with newer hardware. I highly recommend it.
