Jan 11th 2011 1:03AM It's been there for a few days...


Updated terms specify number of installs from the Mac App Store (TUAW.com)

Jan 6th 2011 10:58AM I'm going to try it out when I get home. I already upgraded my iMac to 10.6.6 and have purchased a few apps. I'll leave my MacBook running 10.6.5 and transfer the App file over, see if it'll launch. That'll answer that question.

Updated terms specify number of installs from the Mac App Store (TUAW.com)

Jan 6th 2011 10:50AM So, how do I transfer the app from my iMac to my MacBook. Can I just copy the Application file over and it'll work? I'm curious how they will prevent piracy.

Mac App Store now online, Mac OS 10.6.6 available (TUAW.com)

Jan 6th 2011 10:06AM So how does the DRM work with these apps?

I can't be the only one that is curious. There are some apps that I buy and load onto both mine and my girlfriends MacBooks. Sure, they may only be "single licenses" but we're all guilty of doing that.

Assuming I buy, lets say, Things on the Mac App Store, I'll need to use my Apple ID to launch the application, or add my computer to a list of "confirmed systems". If I add my ID to her compute as well, that would count a second "hit".

Until I play with it some more, I still feel some applications are best left to serial keys for personal use. I feel this store will be awesome for apps that are Free - $10.

Jan 6th 2011 9:24AM Yeah, I was curious how Apple would handle existing licenses for applications that move to the App Store. We all knew it was unlikely you'd get a new license but if I can update to the latest releases then that's fine with me.

Jan 6th 2011 9:15AM Noticed my existing applications show Installed.

Obviously it's paying attention to the Applications folder, sure it won't show as a "Mac Store Purchase" but I'm curious to see if my pre-existing purchases can be upgraded to newest versions from it.

Greenpois0n jailbreaks the Apple TV (TUAW.com)

Oct 20th 2010 8:56AM Completely agree. I received my Apple TV yesterday and got a chance to play around with it last night. Big improvement in speeds over my 1st gen, it's just too bad Apple decided to not include SMB and Divx support. Right now it's a strict Netflix box (New to Canada) but I already ordered myself a Micro-USB so that I'm ready when this launches.

Beta Beat: Sparrow Gmail client for Mac (TUAW.com)

Oct 5th 2010 4:53PM I like it but it's got a ways to go.

Anyone else having issues with it hammering the Gmail servers? If I have this open as well as Mail.app after a few minutes Mail.app will start popping up that my passwords are rejected. Close off Sparrow and problem is solved.

GV Connect app for Google Voice now available (TUAW.com)

Sep 17th 2010 9:00PM Oh good to know at least, I'm at work so no WiFi available. I'll check it out later! Is a drawback but at least it sounds functional in that case?
