Daring Fireball on MacHeist heist

John Gruber of Daring Fireball has been closely following a MacHeist promotion that appears to have made a tremendous profit off selling a software bundle. The software developers were allegedly paid a flat fee, so their estimated share amounts to $80,000 split between 10 different apps, with an estimated $385,000 in profit for MacHeist, and $200,000 promised for charity. The numbers are guesstimates, but the allegations seem disturbingly plausible.
