STORY: More for Your Money - SnagIt

"I'm off to try that new lunch place," Dan the technical writer
announced.

"I heard it's pretty pricey," Callie commented.

"I know how to spend my money wisely," Dan said. "Just look at SnagIt
- the leading screen capture software."

"What about SnagIt?" Callie asked.

"SnagIt offers you more for your dollar than any other screen capture
product available. It has over seven different tools built into one
utility - now that's value," he said.

She looked at him quizzically. "Seven?"

Dan recited, "Image Capture, Text Capture, Web Capture, Video Capture,
Printer Capture, Image Editing, Image Browsing. Plus - batch
conversion, free technical support, and free upgrades. If I bought all
of the tools separately that exist within SnagIt, it would cost over
$400 dollars! With SnagIt, I get all of these tools in one utility
for just $39.95."

"Not bad," she admitted.

"So . . . can I take you to lunch?" Dan asked.

"Sure," she smiled. "I guess you DO know how to spend your money
wisely."
