Apple "A new report suggests that Apple may be planning to eliminate retail boxed software from its Apple Stores, instead focusing on promoting the Mac App Store for software sales. This is indeed a trend that Apple has been pushing for a while, but not all the software that Apple sells would necessarily be a great fit for pure digital distribution."

And so, OSX pursues its ipadification... I assume that by now, those who used to claim that Apple does not plan to make the Mac yet another iOS device are going to switch to claiming that it is the best outcome possible.

Gruber, we're waiting for you.

1. How does an operating system pursue something?

2. How is Apple choosing to not stock boxed software in their stores have anything to do with the ipadification of anything? For the most part, the only boxed software in an Apple store is Apple's software, there is very little third party stuff. Have you been in an Apple store?
