Get a $117 Mac app bundle for free

What's this? Free software for Mac users? There's something you don't see every day. The Mac Freebie Bundle includes eight apps, yours for the taking.

Let's be honest: Mac users don't usually get a lot of freebies.

Sure, there are software bundles from time to time, but usually they cost around $50 -- nothing free about that.

That's what makes this deal so special: it doesn't cost a dime. For the next two weeks, StackSocial is offering the Mac Freebie Bundle, a collection of eight Mac apps with a combined value of $117 -- and a total cost to you of $0.

What's included? Here's the rundown:

  • Clipboard manager ClipBuddy.
  • Icon organizer IconBox2.
  • Image tweaker Image Smith.
  • Screen-capture tool Ondesoft Screen Capture.
  • Text-art generator Sweetie.
  • Typing tutor Type Fu.
  • Video converter VidConvert.
  • Wallpaper manager Wallpaper Wizard.

Remember, there are no small apps, only small minds! Or something like that. Granted, these aren't productivity powerhouses, but they're useful tools for an unbeatable price. What's not to like?

While you're there, you might as well enter StackSocial's iPad Mini contest. I'm loathe to spend $329 (minimum) on a Mini, but I'd gladly take one for free.

Microsoft leaves Apple in the dust with tablet and laptop innovation in 2015

Will there be one Apple Ring to rule them all? That's what a patent application says. Plus, building the thinnest gadget isn't innovation anymore and Apple just got a reality check from Microsoft.
