Apple Takes Wraps Off Mac App Store - WSJ.com

Looks like BestBuy and other stores will reclaim some shelf space soon; few people will be buying Mac OS apps in a box, going forward

The company also previewed a new version of its [Mac OS] operating system with features that allow users to organize their screens and manipulate applications in a way that's similar to the iPhone and iPad.

Apple's new store has the potential to be a new revenue source for the company, which will take a 30% cut of revenue. The mobile app store, which includes more than 300,000 apps, already makes about $2 billion to $2.5 billion a year for Apple, according to a rough estimate by Kaufman Brothers.
