Apple Opens Mac App Store

Apple Inc. opened the online Mac App Store today, Thursday, January 6, 2011. This follows, and is in response to, Google's online Chrome Web Store announced at the Chrome Event on December 7 and Microsoft's Office Web Apps. It originally started with Apple, the iTunes and App stores, and was focused on music and mobile apps. Now online apps are being pushed to non-mobile devices, i.e., desktops, by Apple, Google, and Microsoft as cloud computing becomes more prominent.

Apple unveiled the Mac App Store at the Back To The Mac Event on Wednesday, October 20, 2010. The cloud challenge to Microsoft was noted in a video in a previous post [Apple to Open Mac App Store in January (Video) *Cloud challenge to Google & Microsoft*].
