I agree they shouldn't have back doored SongGenie in. That being said, it looks like it works pretty good. I give Cover Scout props for making my life much easier. I have already applied high quality covers to dozens of albums that iTunes would not for various reasons. Just because SongGenie was already installed I gave it a whirl. I have a few thousand songs with missing info. I randomly selected nine songs, and it identified eight. The other was an obscure song from a compilation. I will go ahead and purchase because again, it is going to save me hours and hours of manual tagging.
Note to Equinox:
1. Never back door an app in with others. This is a bad idea. I don't really care because if I wanted to it would take me all of 2-3 seconds to uninstall (depending on how close my window is to the trash), but a lot of other people do.
2. You are correct that these apps work well with each other. Most people who are missing cover art probably have songs mis-tagged, and vice versa. Why not sell them as one app and lower the price? That would probably drive more sales.
In closing, some people seem to be blowing this way out of proportion. Is this the first time you have every gotten extra software from an install? Someone else mentioned that iWork trial. What about any PC purchased from HP, Dell, Sony, etc. Spend a whole day removing crapware or reinstalling. Also, these apps compliment each other. It is not as if they added iSale. Sure they are trying to use this bundle to pitch SongGenie. Look at the retail price of the Cover Scout app compared to the buck or two they are making off bundle sales. This is business and you don't stay in business long practically giving your apps away. If you don't like it just delete both apps and move on, but stop acting like someone killed your dog.
