App Store Counter

Mac ClassicAlthough as readers may have surmised from previous posts, I’m looking forward to the Palm Pre, in hopes that it will be my Treo replacement … but the new WebOS device has a long way to go before software offerings are anywhere close to what the iPhone has available. That said, I remember when that was stated as the Apple Macintosh‘s disadvantage too — yet it hasn’t stopped sales.
