Might get one just for the Smart Cover.
Apple launches the Mac App Store. The store comes as part of the OSX update to 10.6.6. I’m on vacation for a few days and the OS update took a crazy 3 hours over hotel wifi, but I suspect at home in SF, it would’ve only taken about 20 minutes. The app store is another standalone […]
