iPhone Users - More Dollars Than Sense

Posted by: Steve Henderson (08/08/08)
Within its first 24 hours of being on sale in the iPhone app store, 8 people bought a program called "I Am Rich" for $1000. The best part? The application does absolutely nothing except display an animated red gem.

So what if the 8 people were millionaires? Are they really losing sleep over that?

Haha, why would anyone ever need a $1000 app for an iPhone? And I hope they didn't think it was something serious, actually I really don't care.

Someone should now make a free app that does the same thing and undercut anything that might have been remotely rewarding about their purchase.
