WP Plugin for WLM – Sell Bundles

I created my first WordPress plugin last night. It allows me to sell “bundles” of courses on my MasteringCoronaSDK.com site. WishList Member is an awesome way to handle my membership stuff, but doesn’t have any way to let you sell a bundle of courses at once. So I changed that.

The High (?) Price of the iPad mini

I was one of the folks kind of bummed when the $329 price tag was unveiled for the new iPad mini from Apple.
