5 Years On, the App Store Has Forever Changed the Face of Software



Wired has an interesting article that makes us think about what we now take for granted – apps.  “It…changed the way we think about software distribution and valuation.”  It really did.  It is hard to imagine having a Blackberry just a few years ago, and using the web with text based menus.  When we went from ASCII based text on a screen at 300 bps to color pictures on Compuserve and America Online, it was amazing.  We’ve done the same thing with smartphones, but it is even more meaningful.  They become a part of us – an extension of our lives and our intelligence.

The Wired article about apps, the ecosystem, where we’ve been, and where we’re going is here.
