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.

Wow, I can only hope that you are being sarcastic as this sounds like one of the most illogical posts I have read. It would be certain doom for Apple's Mac business to go to this closed scenario that you describe. Sorry, no way it is going to happen.

All this is amounts to another way for Apple to sell software and the developers to get their apps to a bigger audience. Of course you are free to not use the MacApp store and continue to sell it yourself. Apple is not about to lock down the Mac this drastically. If they do what you describe then NO other applications will run. This would eliminate ALL the apps that exist today. Nope, sorry Charlie, no way in hades it is going to happen.


Yeah...
Fanaticism.
