August 8, 2008: $1,000 Ruby iPhone app

Apple has always controlled it’s products – The Application store is no different. This might be a great case why. An application was put into the store – Called the $1000 app. It did cost $1000, which means after Apple’s 30%, the developer received $700 per purchase. The application simply showed a ruby.Apple took the app down quick, but not after the application was purchased 8 times.

Keep in mind there ARE applications that cost upwards to $1,000. I highlighted them in this iPad365 episode.

I love tech history. I enjoy how we evolved from computers that fill a room to computers we wear on our bodies. I have put a full archive of tech history together at Wikazine. You can also talk history at Google +. I am also a podcaster and V-caster at Geekazine and a Podcast Coach at How to Record Podcasts. You can also sign up for a Helpout
