Hmmmm googling mac box bundle - 1 doesn't try to autocomplete, 2 doesn't show much info in the results...also...how does that work? How didi he make a profit on that

Nice.

His site's been posted here on numerous occasions, offering what's basically low-grade shovelwear with the occasional strong app for low prices, relative to an absurdly high RRP. It's a trick that's been in use for a long time. People fall for it every time though, and by adding the charity thing in too, as well as, iirc, promotions where if enough people bought, he'd give a bonus mystery app for free, he's done an exceptional job at viral and moral marketing. Very clever guy, and well done to him.

"'Mac Box Bundle was already becoming a success but I really wanted to push myself and do something different, so I came up with the idea of Branchr" from the original story

Edit...ahhh earlier in the story it gives the other name
