Guy Buys $999 I'm Rich App, Discovers He's Just Dumb

Illustration for article titled Guy Buys $999 Im Rich App, Discovers Hes Just Dumb

While this image may be doctored, I want to believe it's real. What really wins this for me is the desperate tone in the review from the guy who actually bought the $999 I'm Rich iPhone application, saying the application is a scam:

THIS IS NO JOKE...DO NOT BUY THIS APP AND APPLE PLEASE REMOVE THIS FROM THE APP STORE....APPLE MUST MUST MUST START TO SCREEN THESE FAKE APPS AND RIDICULOUS SCAMS.

Dear Lee5279xx,

No, Lee, this is not a scam. The application clearly said what it did and-if you are telling the truth-you went ahead and clicked on "BUY." That's not a scam. That's you being a moron.

Still, you've got a point. After all the fuss about only allowing good quality developers into the iPhone application store, the whole thing is loaded with crap. Crap with no real functionality, crap with bad design, crap with horrible icons. Except a few quality applications, the screening process is obviously useless. The I'm Rich application is just an extreme example that highlights what's wrong with the store, no matter how good it is in other aspects.

Still, dear Lee5279xx, we hope you can cancel that charge. Dummy.

Lots of love,
j.

This is one of the greatest applications ever. Not only is it perfectly free of charge for the sensible, it seriously punishes people simply for being stupid. An awesome social experiment, and it's a success!

I do believe that this was developed by Deep Thought herself.
