Updated to 10.6.6 and it included the Mac App Store. VERY cool. I like it! Aperture 3 is only $79!! And I think this way I'll find apps that I like quicker than normal.

Thats cool

Bummer for me I need to get Snow, to bad Apple dissed 10.5.8 people ? Oh well.

I did notice that people who bought say a game for their iPhone - they need to buy the same game over again. Like 1.99 iPhone and then re buy for 19.99 Mac <-- WoW big jump. I would have thought that current owners of an iPhone app would at lease get a discount or something to port to a Mac ?

Yeah that Aperture deal is sweet. Maybe I can talk my company into buying it. I've had to use iPhoto for the last 6 years for the thousands of photos I take here. Of course I'm still on Adobe CS 3 too.
