You didn't really bought that, didn't you??

Cyril Gabathuler, 2008-08-06

I bought it for him.

Bruce Elgort, 2008-08-06

Wow, my Nokia E90 is rich too...shame I don't have a second camera to hand!

Ben Rose, 2008-08-06

Well, I could "programm" this application and make it look the same and sell for $500 in AppStore :-)

Christian Müller, 2008-08-06

But then it would only be half as good. Like Ben's cheap Rolex.

Volker Weber, 2008-08-06

Oops - Someone bought it by mistake and isn't happy.

Chris Coates, 2008-08-07

Yeah, "thinking it was a joke". Can you guess the nationality where adults claim protection for stupidity? It is NOT a scam. It does exactly was it says, and it costs exactly what is listed.

Volker Weber, 2008-08-07

I say good luck to the author, what a brilliantly simple idea!

Ben Poole, 2008-08-07

When you gave me the link I first did not believe it. How can somebody be so stupid...

Alper Iseri, 2008-08-07

Looks like it's already been pulled.

Sure, it's stupid to click that button. But if you throw enough users at it, it's pretty much guaranteed that someone will click it without thinking.

Timo Stamm, 2008-08-07

Indeed. That is why you must create software for as big a market as possible. You should be able to make a living if not a killing by selling to idiots who have no idea what they are buying.

Volker Weber, 2008-08-07

Looks like 8 were sold before it got pulled

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
