Mac App Store : Why there's something to worry about?
|Thursday December 16, 2010. 09:46 PM||Apple > Apple|
The alleged news that Steve Jobs is said to have decided to move the opening date of the Mac App Store on December 13th gives us the opportunity to raise the question: is it good for us, as musicians? Surfing on the successful wave of the iTunes Music Store, Apple is trying to push its advantage. To what extent is it interesting for us, musicians, to turn to a Mac App Store, which is liable to be (as the numerous problems with the iPhone Apps testify) a mere censor? So far, as Apple is utterly involved in a fierce competition (with its own softwares as Logic, etc., but with the whole range of applications for Mac), we can really wonder whether they will propose all possible applications for music in the online catalog. On top of that, as the evolution of OS X runs as a tortoise rather than as a lion (!), is the market ready for this?
