Why I Bought the MacUpdate Parallels Bundle

Here’s my story.
If you don’t like its start, don’t miss its end.

I already knew of most of the applications in the Parallels Bundle.

I already own Hazel.
I already own a competitor app to Parallels (Fusion).

I already use freeware or shareware equivalents to:
MenuCalendarClock (stock apple widget, not great),
StoryMill (trying Scrivener),
Typinator (trying TextExpander).

I knew I would someday want to buy Leap and MenuCalendarClock.
I knew I might someday need Art Text and StoryMill.

I think I learned the existence of this bundle on TUAW.
I checked it on MacUpdate, including the screencast.
I read again about it on another blog.
And another time on another blog I’m subscribed to.

And still, with all the knowledge I have of these apps, I wasn’t sure I’d purchase the bundle.  I even closed its tab in my browser – bad sign.

But then, Chris Pirillo published this post that hooked me.
I read it and bought the bundle; hence this post to share it with you.

    Hi there… if you’re ever on Windows and are looking for a TextExpander or Typinator equivalent, I wrote Breevy (http://www.16software.com/breevy/).

    Always adding new features and taking suggestions, too. 🙂
