    Or - I'll just wait and see if Apple quietly update 10.6.6 in a couple days. I've reported the issue to them.



    Items can be locked in the get info window.



    If you have space on your drive you can partition with Disk Utils and make a small volume and install your OS X you have on that, boot to that and access the main volume as a slave. Obviously an additional HD would be preferable and always good to have for making emergency boot volume and a clone of your internal. TM is wonderful but not a replacement for a clone that can be booted and accessed in situations like this. I always have a clone and a TM.

    Yep good point, but perhaps you misunderstand my reason for posting. I agree I can't expect both. However a message for those eligible for upgrades and a link to a landing page on the programer's site would be good. I was wanting to warn others to be careful if they are eligible. I already had an email from Panic agreeing with me.

    Lots of developers also offer education discounts, and so does Apple. But there is no separate App store for education, right, or is there?

    (Just now, shocked to see the price of BBEdit)

    iWeb Pro has been renamed Coda.

    Honestly, my "rant" was not meant to be against you but rather at the "short sighted" developers who don't have the vision of a Steve Jobs. It will be interesting to see how many resisting developers will "capitulate" once the app store has the unparalleled success of which I'm certain... cheers ....

    Yeah, remember those nice black Apple t-shirts we used to get with the annual $500 dev account renewal - that now only costs $99. The shirt was always too small anyway. It is better just to have a cheaper price, right?

    I was thinking more of entering that information myself voluntarily so i get updates and discounts. But as to the bootlegs, you have no privacy right to commit a crime or a tort.

    It recognises mine, pages, numbers etc show as "installed".



    I wonder why $US12.99 becomes $A17.99 for iPhoto, when at the current exchange rate $US12.99 = $A12.97, we have a GST of 10% which is the only possible tax that can be levied and that doesn't apply to overseas purchases.



    The Australia add five bucks Apple tax.



    At least $A54 is better than $A79 for the set.

    If my grandmother can figure out how to purchase Apps...that's progress!



    Quite possible there will be close to that number in a year given the history of the other stores. What has been called into question and rightfully so in my view is: What kind of apps?



    Those that qualify under the current guidelines can only be of the simplistic variety. In addition, there is no longer a referral process for anything outside the App store. That entire pool of developers together with their products has been locked out overnight.



    Example: Do a search for "CAD". Under the old downloads format, you'd come up with over a dozen hits. Try it now. Zero hits. In a year from now, you will get a few. But none of the significant apps will ever show up. Because they install resources and use alternate licensing procedures than permitted.

    is not about promoting a thriving developer community. It's about channeling more profits into Apple's own coffers.

    Then don't develop for it and stay out of rational discussions about it.

    on this board. If you are going to make comment, keep it to the subject. You do not know shit about me or the basis of my comment any more than I know you.



    I've been using Apple computers for professional design work since 1994. I'm one of those fanatics who kept them afloat when everyone else bailed and was cheering on their demise.



    I have seen the developer community grow then collapse then grow again. And I am nobody's fool when it comes to what goes on in the market.



    Evidently my comment was a bit too spot on for your self interested tastes.

    The application itself has a lot of promise and I expect that I'll be using it but for now, it's in the trash.



    *ugh* I bet you don't use iTunes either, because it knows what music and videos are on your computer. Nor iPhoto because it can find your pictures for you.



    The App Store is no different.
