MacKiev updates for Mactel
Software MacKiev today announced today the release of free Universal updates for three of its best-selling Mac software titles: 3D Weather Globe & Atlas ($40), The Print Shop for Mac 2.0 ($60), and the 2006 World Book Multimedia Encyclopedia ($60). The Universal updates allow the three products to run natively on Apple's new Intel-based Macs. Software MacKiev also released benchmark test results that show that the updated products run up to three times faster on the new Intel Macs when compared to the equivalent Power PC machines. All three Universal updates are available as free downloads from Software MacKiev's website.
"We have seen the speed of our Universal editions running on Apple's new iMac Core Duo, and we're very impressed," said Jack Minsky, Software MacKiev's President. "We're fully committed to creating Universal editions for every one of our current software products and introducing these first three updates just a few weeks after the arrival of the first Intel-based Mac gets us off to a great start. You can be sure that every title we start from now on will be planned as a Universal application from the very beginning.
