Apple announces Mac App Store: Fool me once, shame on you… fool me twice, shame on me.
Well, it’s official. Apple has now announced it’s bringing the
App Store concept to the Mac and it looks like they’ll be
restricting apps with FairPlay DRM too for good measure. When we
first began talking about the problems with the App Store on the
iPhone and iPod Touch, people wanted us to drop it and stop
talking about the DRM tricks being pulled by Apple on the grounds
that the iPhone wasn’t a general purpose computer (it is, and the
iPad is too) but rather an appliance.
Is this a glimpse of what Apple has in store for the future of computing?
