How Old Are Your CD Rips?

I've been trying to get back into music lately, something that's fallen far to the wayside for several years as my listening interests have fallen more and more into talk radio and podcasts. After spinning a few CDs on my home stereo and really enjoying it, I decided to load up my new Windows Phone, complete with built in Zune player, with a bunch of music.

I love dungeon crawlers, roguelikes, and generally bashing in the heads of multiple monsters while obsessively collecting loot and items through randomly generated labyrinths.

Apple Releases the Mac App Store, I Get A Little Scared

Yep, the subject line just about sums up my feelings on the Mac App Store.  I love Apple products, but I'm not exactly going to herald the arrival of the all-too-overhyped marketplace with a red carpet or anything.  This idea has been done before, with Bodega, only part of the revenue from sales (a big part) will go to Apple instead of developers, in exchange for a larger audience.

So what is it?

The Mac App Store is simply a marketplace for you to discover, install, and purchase Mac applications.  If you have an iDevice, you're already intimately familiar with how the process works.
