Price and Availability: — Super Boomerang and ShortCut are widely available from dealers and mail order firms, and MacConnection sells them for $84 (only in the Now Utilities package) and $45 respectively. KiwiFinder Extender may no longer be readily available (see review below) but DFaultD is widely available as shareware for $20. (We quote the MacConnection price in recognition of its industry-leading efforts to use ecologically-conscious packaging and its overall excellent service.)
