Mac App Store = Big Deal

The pundits (including me) are all cooking together our slants on the Mac app store. The thing is, the pundits don’t matter. The Mac app store is all about normal users who don’t know how to download software from developer web sites and don’t like giving their credit card information to strangers. The App store takes all the barriers down. Don’t believe me? Look at Evernote’s numbers.

90,000 downloads in the first 24 hours of the App store and 40,000 new users. This is going to be a big success. Expect a Windows App Store, within a year.

    I find it total b*******t but that's just me, since I buy software by paying for it with PayPal, not a credit card, but now with Apple's b*******t App store I can't. Don't bother suggesting their cards, they cost me 12% more in a province in Canada were I hang my hat, so what Stevie did is just increased my costs by 12%.

    The way I see it, Apple wants the whole pie not just a slice and screw everyone else
