If you’ve downloaded the new 10.6.6 update for Snowleopard today, you will notice there is a new Apple App Store in the dock at the bottom left of your operatinng system. Have you used it yet? Very limited on the free apps and very heavy on the paid apps. The apps are just a new way of saying, “software”. You’re essentially buying software from one location instead of going to the manufacturers website to download. Alls you need is to be logged into your me.com account. This can be deadly! I almost purchased a $79 app while I was cleaning my mouse, just in one click. I urge extreme caustion when having the App store active on your desktop, especially with kids on your Mac computer.
