    Sweet Iphone app

    not


    Behold: "I Am Rich," a $999.99 app from Armin Heinrich, which just displays a red gem on the phone's screen -- nothing else.

    One of the posts.

    OK this may be hard to understand but I bought this app. My friends and I all have iPhones and we have been geeking out for weeks about all the apps on it. But I am the only one in our group who is kinda rich from a tech exit. So I bought this app and frankly there is a sense of exclusivity about it that makes my phone just a little bit different than theirs. To me the money is chump change so I don't give a **** and to them they wish they had the cash to throw away on such trivial meaninglessness so this gives me an edge up in our friendly-competitive social circle.

    Make sense?

    I got about half way through that before I realized you were quoting someone else. I was going to ask you for a loan.

    Someone will make a look-alike alike app and post it on sourceforge.net for free. So much for his exclusivity.

    Looks like the app has been taken out of the store now.
