Ya ... the big zinger is getting locked into the App Store. Among the complications: There's no provision for upgrade pricing, so when the next paid upgrade comes out, if you want it, you'll have to pay full price for it. And, as Steve notes, you won't have installation media you can use if you're not connected to the Net. Or if your connection is too slow for a convenient download of the program you need.

I hope Apple (and other vendors) will continue to sell Mac software on discs and through traditional downloads. Moving to an iPhone model would turn me right off.
