Apple Eliminates Boxed Software From University Bookstores

Continuing their crusade on boxed software in general, Apple informed educational resellers that they will no longer be receiving retail copies of any Apple software titles, reports ZDNET, and issued an end of life (EOL) notice for all physically packaged Apple software products (pictured below, image credit: 9to5Mac).


Apple has been on an apparent crusade to eliminate physical software packages in favor of digital downloads through the Mac App Store, which the company demonstrated by releasing their latest OS X Lion operating system entirely as a digital download through the Mac App Store.

There are both positive and negative aspects to this practice, as it eliminates a lot of packaging and clutter, consolidates the software purchasing experience, and saves retail shelf space, but can make it difficult for those without fast broadband internet connections to purchase and download software.
