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."

Well, Mac EFIs have been able to do with a bluetooth mouse and a GUI boot device selector for some time, why wouldn't they also include access to the Mac app Store while we're at it ? ;)

After all, those Splashtop-powered desktops/laptops show that there's plenty of room for feature bloat in motherboards' flash memory nowadays...
