You knew it was coming. I think pundits have been wondering for years whether Mac desktops and laptops might get bound to an App Store environment, becoming fully-rooted residents of the infamous walled garden, planted right next to the fully bloomed iPhone and budding iPad.
Apparently, Sir Jobs has ambiguously denied a random email asking if such a store is in the works, although it's unclear what his answer does or could mean.
My theory? A Mac App Store of some kind, integrated into iTunes, will exist someday very, very soon... whether we like it or not. What does that mean for Mac users?
