It seems that with the release of Lion yesterday on the Mac App Store, Apple is taking more steps to encourage online media downloads, but discontinuing sale of boxed software in their physical Apple Stores. According to TUAW,
[Apple Inc. recently sent out] a notice out to retailers to discontinue titles like iWork ’09, iLife ’11, Aperture 3, and most of GarageBand’s Jam Pack addons. All of that software will of course be available on the App Store with a download, but Apple won’t be keeping them in the actual retail store any longer.
This certainly isn’t a bad thing, as having the media downloadable over the internet means that you can buy Apple software within the comfort of your own home. Plus, Apple’s stores won’t look so crowded with all those colorful boxes packed on the shelves on the wall.
