Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

True the word wasn't coined by Apple. But apart from "killer apps", which is imho more of an idiom, it wasn't used much, while nowadays the mainstream audience (and that's probably not you, OSnews readers) recognizes it as specifically referring to a small application for a smartphone or other mobile device.

Idiots who don't understand that applications and programs is the same as programs and applications may think so. And so do you.

An iPhone app is an iPhone program. End of story.

You are referring to the majority of people as "idiots". It's clear where you're coming from.
