Most Popular Email Software

Popular email software stats

If you send out email newsletters, or other email-based marketing, you may be interested in these stats from Campaign Monitor. They took a look at over 250 million opens over a 6 month time period and posted the results.

There is some fine print in the accuracy of the results:

“The email client a person is using can only be detected if images are displayed. This can give an inflated weighting to email clients that display images by default, such as Outlook 2000 and the iPhone. It will also provide a lesser weighting to those that block images by default such as Gmail and Outlook 2007. Those email clients that aren’t capable of displaying images, such as older Blackberry models and other mobile devices cannot be included in this study.”

MacHeist 3: Up to $975 in Mac software for just $39

MacHeist 3

The MacHeist people have outdone themselves this year. They’re offering up to $975.70 in Mac software, for only $39. There’s some pretty nice titles in this years bundle.

If you’re unfamiliar with MacHeist, the short story is they bundle a bunch of Mac software together, sell it for significantly reduced pricing, and give 25% to charity. The more copies that sell, the more software is added to the bundle. It just gets better and better. Everyone who buys the bundle gets all the software, even if the title wasn’t included at the time you bought in.

Most people probably don’t care about the entire bundle, but the cost is so low that you’re generally getting the 1 or 2 apps that you do want for a very good price.

As of today there’s only 11 days left to participate, so head on over to and grab your copy before it’s too late.

Accept Credit Card Payments on your iPhone or iPod Touch

What an excellent idea… Transactions is an iPhone app that allows anyone to accept Credit Card payments wherever they have a wifi, 3G, or EDGE connection. It works in conjunction with PayPal Pro or accounts.

They make 2 versions of the app. The full (unrestricted) version costs $29.99. But, there’s a free (lite) version that has the same capabilities, but it limits you to 2 transactions every 12 hours.
