When there is software, there will be pirates. The only thing you can do about it is make it harder to pirate, which Apple has failed to doName? whereswaldo

I paid $5 for Angry Birds, and all the apps on my phone are legit and paid for. What's the big deal? If you don't pay for apps, they won't make apps (not talking about Adobe or Microsoft, where they trot out a new iteration every year and charge $500+ for it). The little devs deserve the money (not that the devs of Angry Birds are little anymore ). Anyone too cheap to pay for a $.99 app when they are paying $99 a month for an iPhone is a cheap thief in my book. I'm a jailbreaker, not a thief.
As to the new store, I don't see it as being all that exciting. Much of it seems useless and overpriced. I'm waiting for the Cydia version to open, then we'll hopefully see some interesting tweaks and mods.Senior

What I hate is that it admin protects and downloads them to the Applications folder
There are so many applications already in that folder from apple
You will never find your app plus it install it onto the Dock which is extremely annoying especially when you have dock lock on through Terminal code cause I'm always accidentally pulling stuff off of my dock
Make a folder on the Desktop Call it AppStore or whatever Apple dangit
At this point you can move your games around to a different folder or whatever but the problem would be when updates come out the AppStore might think you delete the app and never tell you that there is an update idk at this point

Uh... the Mac OS really wants apps where they belong. If you move them, updates won't find them because they are in the wrong place. This has been the case since 10.0. OS 9 and earlier didn't really care where anything was, but 10 is quite demanding.
I have no issues with the store, except, as I already stated, it seems a bit overpriced and the apps don't hold much interest for me.
As to pulling things off the dock by accident.....
Ya know, you can make a folder of app alias's (just create a new folder in Applications and then put your selected apps in it, then pull into the dock) and open from it. I do that just to speed things up for lesser-used apps. Pretty simple to do.Senior

That's true I forgot about creating shortcuts from the applications folder to another folder but think about how hard it will eventually become to find the main apple Apps in the applications folder like Utilities and such

As for most apps being to much money, many of those apps have become discounted. PIxelmator is 50% and exclusivly in the app store. Welcome to the world of high quility applications.

Apple hasn't released too many "epic fails." I don't think all the Consumer Reports bs and all the negative press means much of anything when it comes to the actual products. It's sold a kajillion iPhones, and they keep flying out the door. The iPad is an enormous success. Apple's computers sell very well. Is Apple's stuff overpriced? Well, compared to Windows stuff, maybe, but I don't mind paying more for what I perceive to be a better product.
As a consumer, I make my choices based on a number of parameters, including my previous experience with the company's products. I've never has a "fail" from Apple, the worst I've had is a couple of worn-out HDs and a display failure they fixed for free. That's over more than ten years of using Apple products.
As to moving slowly, show me any major corporation that can turn on a dime. There are levels upon level of company strata, and no one person who just says, "do this now!" Not Apple, not Dell, not Ford, not G.E., not any of them.
Every company puts forward its best face and says, "look how much we've improved out product." That's called PR. Hell, you screw up and then do better, YOU do the same thing. Why hold a company to a different standard than that which you hold yourself to?
Oh, and I agree, writing about the ease of cracking is probably a big mistake. This site should be about modding, not cracking.Senior

Lazy programming...Apple should have spent more time on the Mac App Store's security.

No No we all have not. That is the same argument that we heard as teenagers "everyone is doing it" whether that refers to sex or drugs etc etc...
But if I was a millionaire or maybe even a thousandaire I would still be pissed that someone was stealing my work! Ultimately it is my decision when I want to stop being paid for my work or take less money ala Steve Jobs

Some people can be so pathetic... As someone said before it's NEWS about piracy and some bad programming from apples side.. That's it.. But instead, we get 40,000 complaints about how one guy admitted hit just ripped software.. Your ******** isn't going to solve a thing..

Millionaires are people, too. Maybe the money is not making them happy. Just like someone who gets cosmetic surgery, the underlying issues are always going to be there. We can all desire their lifestyles, but until you walk in someone's shoes...
As to "I already knew this was going to happen a long time ago," nah, too easy.Senior
