Hovsepian: Apps! Apps! Apps!
Novell CEO: Apps Are Job No. 1 for Linux
In order for Linux to grow into the computing mainstream, the open-
source OS needs more applications and a standardized approach to
software certification, Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian said in his keynote
Wednesday at the LinuxWorld conference and trade show in San
"The No. 1 thing that we need on Linux is applications," he said.
"Whether we like it or not, the application is what drives the final
customer decision," he added.
John Bail...App Store is not a store for apps
"Hi, I've got an iPhone and I would like to buy an app for it."
"What's the problem?"
"Well, at what store do I buy the app?"
"At the App Store."
"You buy an app for your iPhone at the App Store."
"No, Apple says an app store is not a store for apps, so where do I buy my
"At the App Store."
Okay... I'm talking, but you're not listening. Apple says that the App
Store is *not* a store for apps, so *where* do *I* *buy* an app for my
"At the App Store."
I just updated to 10.6.6, and was playing with the App Store.app. I wanted
to DL a couple of the free apps, but discovered that to DL _anything_, you
need to register a credit card. Since I dislike leaving any credit card info
in any vendor's database, I'm wondering if there's a way to avoid this part
of the registration process, entering your credit card info ONLY when needed
to make a specific purchase.

Has anyone purchased, or know anything about, Speed-Up.app, which is
available from the Mac App Store? (This is not an iPhone app.)
It looks like it would be useful to me for playing back songs in
iTunes at variable speeds, but I can't find any documentation for it
to even see how it works.
The Mac App Store info says it works with 10.5+, but it hasn't been
updated since Jan 2011. The link to "Speed-Up Support" is broken but
it does get you to a site that advertises Speed-Up as an iTunes
plug-in. However, there's remarkably little there about Speed-Up,

Was thinking about picking up an app or two or three (pages, numbers and
find any file). Apple person at the store said the Apple apps aren't
just one system per buy but thought there was some sort of limit. Is
this a app store variable, an app variable or what? And would anyone
know what the deal is on the above mentioned apps is? Would
re-installing software require a deauth before hand?

I do not own an iOS device, so I'm talking about the Mac App Store here.
However iOS users may have similar experiences so read on.
One week ago I downloaded the free miDVD app from the Mac App Store.
It's a very, very bare-bones DVD creator, and I was pretty sure of its
limitations from the get-go.
After a couple of days I wrote a short lukewarm review of the app and
posted it to the App Store. I compared it with similar free and payware
products including iDVD, mentioning the fact the iLife '09 is still
available at that "jungle-themed" online retailer...Mac App Store giving away pay apps for free
Security oversights mean that many of the applications in Apple's newly
launched Mac App Store can easily be obtained without payment.
A significant number of developers have disregarded Apple's advice on
validating App Store receipts before making their software available through
the store. As a result, many applications can be pirated.
Applications bought through the store can be modified to run by any Apple
user (not just restricted to a specific Apple ID, prompting users to log

"What would be your first guess about what an app store sells? Don't

I've read several times about the ability to take my iPhone to the
apple store, point my phone at some product, and have the app store

I thought it was a neat idea, and think I should do it once. I
opened my app store and didn't see any indicator on how to do this, so
I Googled to find instructions on how to do it - without success.
Anybody have a link that explains the details on how to do this?

A few months ago, I downloaded MS OneNote, as it was so highly recommended by the App Store. I hated it! So, I deleted every file I could find connected with it, using 'FindAnyFile'.
A new version has been released, and the App Store wants to update my version, which doesn't exist. I've chosen to 'Hide purchase' in the App Store, but this hasn't made any difference.
I don't know if the App Store is finding a hidden file on my Mac, or keeps a log of its own. The App Store doesn't suggest the update for my other two Macs, which did not have OneNote i...
