Rich Media

Via Valleywag:

Maybe you haven’t heard about the $999.99 “I Am Rich” iPhone App by Armein Heinrich yet. We’ll catch you up, poor thing. Purchase this app for your iPhone 3G from the iTunes App Store now and it will do two things: display a glowing red gem for an icon and tell everyone who handles your iPhone 3G that you have more money than you know what to do with. It’s a bargain compared to a Patek Phillipe watch which does the same thing.

Five years ago, I bet they’d have sold a few of these. Today, not so much.
