Sandvox Public Beta is Released!

We've just made the first public beta version of Sandvox available for download. If you are on our email list, you should be receiving the download URL shortly. If you are not on our list, sign up on our website to get the download information emailed to you.

Thanks for all the encouraging comments we've gotten over the weekend from everybody since the whole "iWeb" rumor broke. We'll see on Tuesday what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, please check out Sandvox.

We had an "early adopter" discount for everyone who had signed up for email alerts before this beta release, but since it's Macworld Expo week, we can't neglect to have a discount for new signups to our list! Either sign up on our website at and enter "Macworld" where asked "How did you hear about us?", or sign up using this URL: For this discount, you must sign up before Friday night (Jan 13, 2006) at midnight (Pacific Time).

Since we will (probably) be competing with Apple — a challenging task— we want to make sure that Sandvox is seen by as many Mac users as possible. With that goal we've put together a referral discount program as an incentive for readers to tell their friends about Sandvox. Thanks for helping us out!

Macworld Expo Attendees:

Look for people wearing Karelia/Sandvox T-shirts.  It might be us. Or somebody we know.  Don't be shy, say Hi!
