Frankly, I'm surprised at how excited I am to see the Mac App Store coming Jan. 6. For me, first and foremost, it's about easy application discovery and instant buying from a trusted source. Sure, you can download many Mac apps from a variety of developer websites, but then you're also sharing a lot of key details about your identity, home and billing information. In an age where cybercriminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated, I like to try to reduce my exposure.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
