An Open Letter to Intel on The AppUp Center

The app store concept is not a product or a service. It’s a complete reset of the way ALL intellectual property will be sold, shared and distributed. It will completely reshape the world of books, music and software.

2. Make it Easy – More importantly, make it LOOK easy.
3. Improve on What Apple has Already Done Well
