If you're an audiobook fan, Toast has the very handy ability to rip audiobook CDs into files with chapter marks and send the results to iTunes for syncing with an iPod or similar device. In the process you can vary the playback speed - increasing the speed can save time without affecting comprehension - and optionally join multiple CDs into a single file.
What I'd really like to be able to do is convert an audiobook into multiple files that run for about half an hour each, but respecting the original sections and including them as chapter marks. I generally fall asleep at night listening to audiobooks or podcasts, and find that longer files make it harder to find the right spot next time I listen, and they also run down the battery unnecessarily because the iPod keeps playing for longer while I'm asleep.
The package includes several utilities: Disc Cover 3 RE (create disc and jewel box labels), DiscCatalogMaker RE (disc cataloging), Get Backup 2 RE (scheduled backup), Mac2Tivo, Spin Doctor (capture audio from hardware devices or applications - useful, but selecting portions of interest from a recording is finicky, so my inclination is to use an external editor), and Mac2Tivo and TiVo Transfer (for TiVo users).
Part of the problem with Toast is that it's moving in multiple directions, and there's no guarantee that someone interested in burning optical discs will also want the media conversion and portable device capabilities, in which case the package seems expensive.
On the other hand, those who want as many tools as possible might be attracted by the Pro version, which also includes Photoshop Elements 9 (Adobe's iPhoto alternative), FotoMagico 3 RE (slideshow production), BIAS SoundSoap 2 SE (audio noise removal), SmartSound Sonicfire Pro 5 (score music for soundtracks), and the Toast Blu-ray plugin. Not bad for an extra $60, especially when Photoshop Elements usually sells for more than twice that.
