New CD-ROM Titles - June 1995
by Rick Smith (June 1995)

CD-ROM titles
If this package of ten CD-ROMs, that work both on a Windows PC or a Macintosh computer, were priced at several hundred dollars, it would be very worthwhile to make a careful and comprehensive evaluation of this package. At this price, this package might end up being a reasonable value, but this package sells for less than $50!

Going into an exhaustive review process would be a waste of your time to read and mine time to write. Spend your time instead by going to the store and BUYING this package.

Here's a list of the CD-ROMs included in Treasure Pack I along with a brief description:

Clip Art Novice - 200 clip art images in EPS and TIFF formats.

Photo Pro Volume 3 - Over 100 high resolution 24 bit TIFF Photographs.

Photo Pro Volume 6 - 100 hires 24 bit TIFF Photographs of flowers

Gallery of Dreams: Surreal Imagery - More 24 bit TIFF images for backgrounds, patterns advertising, multimedia presentations.

Font Pro Volume 1 - 125 True Type and Type 1 Postscript typefaces fully unlocked and fully usable.

CD Fun House 9.0 - l000 shareware games

Quicktoons 1 - 6 full length cartoons

Newsbytes - all the archived articles from May 1983 - December 1993.

Washington Times & Insight 1994 Edition - provides in depth coverage and analysis of current events from January 1990 through December 1993.

Supertoons - 30 minutes of full color QuickTime movies.

In case you are still reading this article and need more justification, consider the following. To take your two kids and spouse to the movies would cost - let's say $10 for an adult ticket, $5 for each children's ticket, plus about $12 in pop, candy and popcorn. With $8 for gas, oil parking and mileage, you have spent around $50 for about 4 hours entertainment, assuming you count that trip to and from the movies as being entertaining. Even if you use this package only once for a single evening's entertainment, it presents an excellent value. For several evenings of entertainment, getting some homework done, saving a trip to the library and the package almost begins to pay for itself!

So if you're still reading this - stop and go out and buy this package right now! What are you waiting for? After all, it comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.
