This is incredibly stupid. Unfortunately, there are a lot of those very affluent types who would buy a burlap sack full of donkey turds if you told them it was the fashionable thing to do.

Poor people can be just as stupid with their money as rich people.

I would be upset that the guy filed to have his app approved before me, but I wouldn't be outraged. I might be more outraged if it was somebody at apples brother and he hd been given preferential treatment, but if he was just before me in line then to me there is not reason for outrage.

just my opinion, though. to me there are more important things.

Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

If this guy submitted his app before me, then I would have no reason to get upset. Even if his app is useless, he was still in line before me.

Plus, the guy who accidentally bought it through "iclick" clicked buy "to see what would happen." Sounds pretty stupid to me.

That's definitely dumb- he can obviously claim that it was a mistake to buy it, but crying that it's a scam because he did something stupid is different.

As first reported by The Los Angeles Times, eight people bought the application, earning its developer $5,600, his 70 percent share. (Apple got the rest.)

He doesn't seem averse to giving people their money back:

Quote
Mr. Heinrich was bombarded with e-mail and phone messages, “many of them insulting,” he said. “It’s O.K. to return the money. I did not want to harm anybody with my app.”

I have to agree that this is pretty hilarious.

I like that he jokingly clicked buy as a joke.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

This reminds me of the time that I applied for that mortgage "just for goofs!"

But in the end,"it's not a joke".

Full circle.

I keep seeing the title of this thread, and every time I read it it I think of that Yeah Yeah Yeahs song, I'm Rich.
