About a year ago I passed one of my favorite haunts in the middle of the night & a homeless guy was standing under neon lights begging for spare change. He had his hand out for alms but at the same time he was talking on a cell phone. What's wrong with this picture? It is a crazy world we live in. A schizophrenic one. People starving & our biggest concern is what "app" to add to our "smartphone". (I think app stands for application or apparition or appropriate or something like that.)
$.99. Two bucks. Three dollars. FREE. There are millions to be made buying/selling additional purposes for a telephone. They are practically traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Apps are what makes iPHONEs, DROIDs, BLACKBERRYs, PALMs brilliant. CAVEAT EMPTOR. There are lots of gimmicks.
