Word on the street has it that Apple is actually considering to remove retail boxed software from its Apple Stores, which would in turn help the company focus more on the promotion of the Mac App Store where software sales are concerned. Surely this isn’t an idea that was thought up on the spot but had to go through a thorough development process, since there are many implications for you to look at it from. Apparently, the huge success of the Mac App Store did force Apple to reduce retail sales, and this required a redistribution of funds and energy toward all digital distribution. Does this mean that we are inching closer and closer towards an all-digital software distribution era?
