Update:According to software developer WonderFox Soft, iWonderSky Software is not allowed to give away WonderFox DVD Ripper licenses. Therefore, at the former's request, we have removed the link for the promotion.

Why settle for one freebie when you can get three?

From now until October 19, iWonderSky Software (which I believe was formally known as WonderFox Software) is offering CNET readers this exclusive: three Windows video utilities absolutely free.

First up: WonderFox DVD Ripper. Normally $39.95, it can convert just about any DVD into just about any digital format. It comes with profiles for a wide variety of mobile devices, though there's no mention of the iPhone 5 (which a few competing products now support).

Next: HD Video Converter Factory Pro. If you already have some movies or other video clips in a format that's not compatible with your intended playback device, this utility (normally $29.95) should be able to convert them.

It supports some 150 video and audio formats, and, like the ripper, includes profiles for loads of popular devices.

Finally, there's Video Watermark Pro, a $34.95 utility that lets you design a watermark and add it to your own videos -- not a huge draw for most users, granted, but still a valuable freebie.

To get any one of these products, click the corresponding Download button, install it, and then copy/paste the supplied activation code to register it. If you ignore that last step, you'll end up with trial versions!

iWonderSky conveniently lists each activation code right on the landing page, so you don't have to wait on an e-mail or go hunting inside a text file. They're right there, people! (Grin.)

All told, these apps would run you around $105 if purchased separately.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
