Resourceful users have found a way get paid Mac App Store apps for free

Apple loves to brag about numbers, so it should come as no surprise that the boys from Cupertino are overjoyed by the news that the newly launched Mac App Store crossed the one million downloads mark in just 24 hours.

"We're amazed at the incredible response the Mac App Store is getting," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Developers have done a great job bringing apps to the store and users are loving how easy and fun the Mac App Store is." 

The Mac App Store provides users a simplified way of searching for, purchasing, and installing OS X applications. Anyone that is familiar with the App Store for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad would feel right at home using the complimentary service for his or her MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air.

Interestingly enough, even though Apple's Mac App Store seems to be off to a good start, it still has it problems. Many users were getting an "error 100" message when trying to access the store early yesterday. The only way to clear the message for many users was to Log Out of their current session of OS X and log back in.

Even more troubling is that fact that some paid apps can be easily pirated by downloading the .dmg files from the internet and using a "purchase" receipt from a free app.

They Are Insanely popular because "Do They offer a feature set not found in Other Products What feature set? What Can an ipad / mac do that Other Competing devices can not? Heck even if i remove all others (android / linux / etc ...) and focus only on Windows, What Can it do? The answer ... Nothing. Even in the hardware spec that's a father superior tablets / notebooks / PC 's Than Apple offers. Even with the bells Such As backlit keyboards (my desktop and laptop Have begged backlit keyboards for years now), multi-touch (hp laptop with a simple 3rd party programs enable two finger scrolling Easily), the App Store ... well windows Does not Have an app store per say ... You'd Have to include Linux for That in and said I was not going to do that so I'll spare you That one ... terrified of the future. The ONLY thing I'm "terrified" of ice, the idea That one day in Might Have less say in What hardware / software i can run on all my systems. That's a future in hope to never see.
