And my reply. When using the word "Steal" I was not meaning it in the literal sense as I am quite aware that they are most likely in the public domain. However they are not created by you, but someone else's work and effort that you are capitalizing on and as such I believe you are profiteering off of some one else's creative efforts. Additionally their have been plenty of free quotes display software available during the history of computers. For instance the DEC PDP11 series, over 30 years ago, under RT and RSX always displayed a daily quote at login. As you indicated you quotes are public domain and therefore many website have such listings that can be found with a simple search, easily created during a login sequence for free. While I have not looked lately, I am almost positive that their are similar programs and widgets also available for free. Based on your product and response it strikes me that you may be a disciple of the great performer - W.C. Fields. Allow me to provide you with a quote of his - for free: " It is immoral to allow a sucker to keep his money."

Now let me get this straight. This developer steals quotes, from other peoples creative efforts ; puts them into a file; and then tries to profit from their efforts. I think got it now.

I really can't fathom why anyone would pay $1 for this, let alone $14. As I said in a previous review, this would be a wonderful candidate for Perversiontracker if it was still being updated . . . BTW, if this type of thing amuses you, grab Darwinports (Fink would work too I'd imagine), install fortune, and build up your own quote file. Or -- here's a real innovative idea, keep a list of quotes in a document (Word, Pages, Rich Text, whatever floats your boat) and just open it up. That is, unless a tacky PowerPoint/HyperCard presentation is worth $14 to you.

I couldn't look at something that ugly, not even if I'd be paid for it.

I think even $15 is too much. I would pay $8 just for the fun of it but no more.

maybe people would pay $15 for this...but $25? are you serious? not trying to be a hater; i'm just incredulous. it's not even an attractive presentation...the UI is just awful. if you just want random quotes on your Mac, search on MacUpdate for "ifortune" or "macfortune"...or "Lonesome Electric Chicken." there are a LOT of quotes in this app, and the fact that you can pull them out by speaker/author is great, but holy moley. get help reworking the interface from someone who left Mac OS 9 back in 2001.

I find the interface very quirky and the database lacking. It looks like a ported Hypercard Stack. While it is nice to have downloaded, I would just suggest finding and bookmarking one or two free quotation sited, and you'll be better off.

Too bad Pervisiontracker is never updated any more, this looks like a real good candidate.
