I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

I decided to clean out my Mac’s applications as well since last night went so well on my iPhone.

This application, Disco, was part of some bundle or other — I don’t remember which one, but I know I didn’t choose to buy it. I’m not sure why most people would, honestly. It retails for $20. It burns CDs. So do Finder, iTunes, and Disk Utility. But it has some exclusive features:

Smoke: With Disco we tried pushing the boundaries of interface, usability, and utter functional simplicity. Well, once you realize that Disco is emitting real time smoke as you burn, we start redefining the boundaries of progress indication. You can even blow into your microphone and the smoke will react accordingly.

I guess you have to do something to justify an application that offers very little over the software that every Mac comes with for free.
