The best part about the iPhone and the iPad is the huge number of apps for all different uses on the App Store. You can find things to make work better along with games and apps for just about anything else. We already know that Apple is planning an App Store for Mac users but when the announcement of the store was made, there was no indication given on how long it would take.
According to AppleTell an inside source has told the publication that Apple is targeting December 13 for the launch of the Mac App Store. The source claims that Jobs and crew had told devs to have software ready to go as early as today, but that launch is not going to happen today is seems. Apple is still mum on an official launch date.
However, the sources say Steve Jobs is pushing hard for a launch before Christmas and Apple is said to be ahead of its schedule. The publication claims that Jobs had wanted the store live before now. There is no word on why that didn't happen. This is firmly in rumor land at this point so take it all with a grain of salt. I am sure Apple wants the store up in time for Christmas giving.
