Iphone or how to be inconsequential for U$0.99

After Apple’s today announcement of one Billion apps downloaded from iTunes store, I`m surprised by the top 40.

There is only one business related app in the top 40 (free and paid), remote for KeyNote. Most of them are games and other hard to qualify apps. The range goes from the disgusting ones as iFart (sorry, this is the real name) to the absolutely useless as Zippo (Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the iPhone is pretending to be a Zippo).

What is really an iPhone? I argued that it was more a toy than a business tool, but knowing what people is buying, I think it is satisfying the need the be unsubstantial and/or inconsequential

To support my point here are two useless apps. The full list could be endless.

1.- The enigmaClock : It uses a complicated algorithm to prevent you to know the time. I don’t know what to say. Somebody pays to have this!!

2.- Hold On: This one is to track how long you can keep a finger on a static position on the touchscreen. Is really usefull when you are doing NOTHING. What do you think about this review?
