MacBreak Weekly Ep. 74 Discussion on MacHeist

Good discussion on the merits of MacHeist from the perspective of indie Mac developers on this week’s episode of MacBreak Weekly, with Leo Laporte, Merlin Mann, and Andy Ihnatko. The MacBreak discussion starts around the 8:00 mark, and then picks up again around 38:00 when they’re joined by Rich Siegel from Bare Bones Software. Siegel makes two main points against selling software at such a spectacular discount: (a) customer support costs; and (b) that it lessens the perceived value of software.
