Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

Riiight...

-We already know what Apple is capable of by having a look at the iTunes-iOS ecosystem and the part of OSX's TOS saying that you can't install it on a non-Apple computer.
-This ecosystem has proven to be more lucrative (selling a phone for the price of a laptop and having Apple get a benefit for every single developer on the platform and a margin on every single app. Selling an expensive Mac to everyone wanting to try OSX)
-OSX will soon include an App Store, with the same TOS as iOS' initial ones. Almost a pixel-perfect copy.
-It will also start to behave like iOS : full-screen applications favored, application grid with iOS-like folders.

What is a "basis in reality" for you exactly ?
