So the general consensus is that in the next 5 (and a bit) days, another MacHeist bundle will go on sale.

I've noticed that the labels on the boxes have recently changed, with a new icon added, which looks remarkable similar to that of RipIt (http://thelittleappfactory.com/ripit/)

So I recon this means RipIt will be part of the bundle?

I haven't managed to identify the other icon (looks a bit like an address book, but it's not one I immediately recognize).

I'm guessing the Directorate will reveal more and more icons over the next 5 days?  So I suggest week keep this thread open to identify the icons, and slowly put together a list of the apps we can expect!

************ APPS IDENTIFIED *************
1.  MacJournal - http://www.marinersoftware.com/
2.  RipIt - http://thelittleappfactory.com/ripit
3.  Squeeze - http://latenitesoft.com/ - Dropped!
4.  Clips (2.0?) -  http://conceitedsoftware.com/products/clips
5.  AirBurst Extreme - http://www.freeverse.com/mac/product/?id=311
6.  Flow - http://extendmac.com/flow/

Also of interest, the iCal event you can download from the front page indicates that the bundle is a "NanoBundle", so may not have a full 10+ apps as the usual bundles do...

Doesn't anyone else remember the questionaire after the last bundle regarding how much we would pay for a similar bundle?  My guess, either a group of small bundles for cheap, and one mongo bundle, or this is just a preview of MH4 with a small paid bundle of favorite mh apps.

ripit is a free app already though, so why would they include this in the bundle?

Huh? It says on The Little App Factory's web site that it's $19.99 for a license. Oh yeah, and as an FYI, they use product activation (one license = one machine only).

The trial version download allows only 10 rips.  It's far from being a free app.

BTW, I hate when companies (or shareware aggregator sites) do that - "Free Download" means pretty much nothing and only messes up your Google efforts to find freeware.

The newest icon on the boxes appears to be for Clips. However the icon on the boxes is slightly different than Clips actual icon below
http://conceitedsoftware.com/images/ClipsIconSmall.png

The things on the clipboard are identical so it must be the same (possibly a new version?)

Orange you glad I didn't make a pun?

I'm not sure why the bundle is being discussed in two different topics, but I said the same thing earlier in the other thread: "So my guess for the new icon is Clips. But it's slightly different, so I'm thinking it will be a 2.0 release."

Clips is definitely the second icon.  searching for mudkips yields

"Mudkip is a legendary creature. It's known as a friend to the Claw Monster Legend says that washed-up former UN SecGen and avid wanker Dr Boutrous-Boutrous Ghali, was approached by a mysterious entity, who said "so i herd u like mudkips." It was then said that that one person created an image based on that strange quote. The image has recently resurfaced in /b/ on 4chan.
It is said that a Mudkip can be found lurking underwater, 4chan, DeviantART, IRC, as well as your Game Boy, your closet, and in your bed, jizzing off to a Combusken. Started as another Meme on 4chan, it elevated to go on to the Drshnaps Asylum, where it festered and died. I was quickly replaced with the Shoop da Whoop Phenomenon, what with their royal rainbows and whatnot."

I'm quite certain that would be considered looking at source code, which is cheating. I might be wrong, but I don't remember any puzzles previously where we had to check file names...

It is, indeed, cheating. None of the puzzles require source code, and looking at source code is in fact considered cheating. Posting source code will get you warned, and repeated offenses will get you banned.

Guys, knock it off with the image filenames. You can tell they're being evasive about it, so it's not meant to help you in any way. I'll start levying personal warning for people who persist.

You can, in fact, drag the image file off the boxes if you're good without looking at the source code.

But no, the filenames probably have nothing to do with anything whatsoever.

Dragging icons from the boxes to the surf bar works, and shows the file name. Staff members should rename the files before publishing them. Even if I'm new here, I saw that MacHeist members aren't stupid.

No, i've talked with Phillyru and he said that the nanobundle will be money, but I'm not sure how much....

That's what jpdyson just called cheating. Come on people, do not look at and absolutely don't post source code — this include the html and css source (which might not be considered "code" by some) as well as file names.

Really, I'm getting tired of all this cheating, both by new members (more understandable) and veterans (not acceptable at all).

I can let it slide a lot more in this case. We're talking about bundle speculation, not cheating at puzzles after all.

I totally agree, but the risk is that people get the habit of doing it. The chat yesterday was filled with source code and so far there have been quite a bit on the forums as well.

I think everyone's just excited about the bundle and any hints they can find they try to latch onto.  Until the bundle is released it's all speculation anyway, even if the MH team put "application_XYZ.dmg.jpg" doesn't mean it will end up in the bundle, could always be a teaser for something else or misdirection at its finest.

In this earlier post, a moderator seems to disagree, saying it's cheating that warrants a "personal warning." I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds bad.

I wouldn't necessarily say it's cheating. It's also not being resourceful. It's being subversive.

MacHeist has a long history of making sure that everything is doable with no bonus ability coming from reading the source. As jpdyson mentioned, they're being evaive about it. Posting the image names isn't going to help you in any further way than viewing the page as you were meant to.

It's also not anything you should be getting into the habit of.

Sorry to have started something.  I simply managed to drag the icon picture off the box to my desktop and saw the name.  The names of the previous icons had been posted previously in this thread, so I didn't realize I was doing anything wrong.

I consider myself warned and will just wait for the bundle like everyone else!
