The $1000 iPhone icon

Clearly hoping that there really is one born every minute and targeted at guys who need to prove how little manhood they have is a new entry to the Apple iPhone application store that appeared yesterday with a $1000 price tag and it doesn’t do a damn thing. The application called “I Am Rich” displays a red gem icon on the phone’s screen and “always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this. It’s a work of art with no hidden function at all.”. The funniest part is that if anyone bought the app they now have a a limited edition copy since Apple didn’t let it live there more than 24 hours. It must have been an interesting decision for them because on the one hand they would get 30% of every sale but at the same time it had to really piss off the developers who actually real spent time creating their applications. I just want to hear the story of how it got approved and the head rolled because of it.
