First time they said;
I apologize for any inconvenience. Apple has recently upgraded their systems to OSX Lion 10.7. During this upgrade, Apple made the decision to no longer support Power PC application; however, all of our products are Power PC programs. While I understand your frustration, we are unable to make the program compatible with your operating system at this time. After my second e-mail;
