TuneUp Utilities 2009 for $9.99.
« on: December 08, 2008, 09:17:51 AM »
Does anyone know of TuneUp Utilities 2009 being offered for $10? Would be kind of you to post the link. It's offered to previous customers at this price. Anyone?

I registered TuneUp Utilities 2006, then upgraded to 2007 and balked this year, because the upgrade price is steep and the only thing they've added in a disk defragmenter. But I haven't received a word from TuneUp about a $10 upgrade.

If it's true, my guess it they are about to release version 2009 rather soon. This looks like a ruse to sucker customers into paying the 10 bucks plus the upgrade price to 2009 (those customers who have refused to buy the 2008 upgrade, anyway).

If you like TuneUp Utilities (I do!), my advice would be to skip this one and upgrade to version 2009 when it's out.

Hello,

TuneUp Utilities 2009 are already released.

I don't know something about a price of $9.99

Thanks, Roland!

Looks like another update I'll skip :) Nothing new this time, just vague improvements to already existing tools, and a redesigned UI (matter of taste).

I did upgrade and enjoy the new features and improvements, but you're right, there wasn't much added.

My upgrade price was $20 ($10 discount if you use the link within the demo), so I think it was still worth it.

By the way, 2008 already had the disk defragmenter. 2009 adds a shortcut cleaner, some cool aesthetic improvements, and I've found its system recommendations to be handier than past versions.
