nova media has announced that it will be offering a discount on its launch2net application in celebration of 25th birthday of the Macintosh computer. launch2net is a mobile Internet connection wizard which allows users to set-up and use mobile Internet connections worldwide. The software supports many mobile phones, most USB modems and datacards and already includes drivers and network access information for a hassle free online experience. From January 24th until January 25th customers will be able to purchase the software for $30 which is a reduction of more than 60% from its regular price of $75.

Coriolis Systems has also announced that it will now be offering a 25% discount on its iDefrag and iPartition applications to celebrate the Mac's 25th birthday. iDefrag is a disk optimization tool for Mac OS X that features on-line and off-line defragmentation, so users can work while the disk is in use by the optimization application. iPartition allows users to repartition disks without losing data, and works with HFS+ Mac OS Extended Partitions. To qualify for the discount, users must purchase one of the products from the Coriolis Systems website before midday on January 25th.

Chronos Inc. has released a free Winter Artwork Kit for use with its SOHO Labels 4 application. The kit includes a border, embellishments, background papers, word art, a frame, tags, and more that can be used for creating custom wintertime labels, envelopes, cards, and letters.
