The Humble Bundlers have something different for us this time around. Instead of a themed collection of games, the latest bundle provides three tiers of PC utilities. The Humble team say they partnered up with tech site Lifehacker to create this new bundle, which would cost up to $315 otherwise.

The Humble Lifehacker Software Bundle is, as regulars would expect, divided into three tiers. For a measly $1 entry fee you can acquire Breevy, Fences 3.0 + DeskScapes, and Directory Opus 12 Light. As an old-time Amiga user it's interesting to see Directory Opus by GPSoftware in this offer as it was many a miggy users' file manager of choice (However, I preferred the lighter DiskMaster2.)

Beating the average bundle payment price will net you another three valuable utilities. For a cent/penny or more than the current average price of $7.53 (about £6.16) you can acquire DisplayFusion (choice of Pro or Steam), a 1-year subscription to LastPass Premium for new users, and a 1-year subscription to CyberGhost VPN for new users.

The top tier of the bundle costs $15 or more. For this sum you will add a couple of year-long subscriptions to the bundle, namely Acronis True Image 2017 and Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017.

All the utilities are said to be DRM-free (though some expire after a year) and some of the programs are available on platforms other than Windows. Remember you can divide your payment between the developers, charity and a Humble tip, as you wish. Charities featured this time are the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Child's Play Charity. There are 13 and a half days remaining to grab this pay-what-you-want bundle.

Oh, worth it for Directory Opus alone, been a happy user since the Amiga days!

In fact, you can pay the $1 and then upgrade to the Pro version for about £25 through their website.
I was tempted by the top tier, but at least for Acronis TrueImage the subscription models means that the program as such will cease to function after the year is up. Unless the subscription is renewned, of course. I had previously thought/hoped that this would only affect the online storage.
Nice package but the 1 year trials for all but one of the BTA packages reduces the value somewhat… Might get the basic though?

Agreed. DOPUS is brilliant, though not being an Amiga user I can't say I'm a life-long fan. I've been using the Pro version (as it has become) for a good 8 or so years and it's damn poor when you have to go back to a plain Explorer PC.

It's expensive usually, but damn do I get my money's worth.

Its just how Acronis work their cloud backup solution, its been like that ever since they launched it.

I managed to accidentally buy it one year because I didnt read carefully enough, I actually just wanted the offline TrueImage, sold as a completely different yet similarly named package.
