|Apple rang in the New Year with the introduction of the Mac App Store - bringing the software purchasing experience from iOS onto the Mac OS X platform. According to Apple, the Mac App Store started up with a thousand apps and a million downloads on the first day! Which begs the question: Do you need this on your computer? Well, keep in mind that the new Mac App Store requires:
- Mac OS X 10.6.6To install the Mac App Store application
- Adminitrative Account on computerTo permit access to the App Store App
- An iTunes AccountTo license the software purchased from the App Store
Add these up plus the fact that the major industrial software items from Microsoft and Adobe are not yet available and you begin to realize that the Mac App Store --at least at this point-- is more for consumers than for businesses.
