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.

Let's not start a linguistic war here, shall we? To the general public, "app" means something different than "computer program", and why shouldn't it?
Since you're one of the few here with this strange view, I wonder what you know about the general public? Your family?
If a member of the general public asks a sensible, knowledgeable, person what an "app" is, they will get the answer that "it's short for computer application, that is, a computer program" and the general public will answer "Aha! Nice to know!"

You are right that was a rather bold, and somewhat unsubstantiated statement, but that's at least what the Dutch media seem to use, and what I hear from people I interact with. Words change meanings, whether or not you like it.

Then perhaps you should be posting in Dutch.

Regarding that case, you have the chance to put it all stright by just referrering to Apple's own application (since 2008) for trademarking the concept "App Store" - a place where you can buy COMPUTER SOFTWARE and other stuff for your phones, pods, pads and - COMPUTERS!
