An iPhone owner walks into a bar...

... and leaves straight away, still gagging for a drink.

All of the drinks cost over a buck, except the coffee. Which you could neither drink for a month nor have free refills for life, so it's a rip off.

Quick question: have you been hacked?

You forgot to mention them rallying and debating with the other people there about how they should be giving away the coffee (on top of free WiFi! )

Maybe he had a good stiff drink (or five.)

Have some Chocolate Stout waiting for me at home...

You get hot water for free, and incrementally earn your coffee beans, unless of course you're prepared to pay premium rate for something that really won't benefit or even effect your life in any lasting or meaningful way.

I just realised I'm kinda erring on the side of consumers here, while the thread was initially in favour of developers. That wasn't intentional, but it just shows how much of a joke the entire setup has become.

Rubicon I get the whole "I'm a developer, just telling it like it is," but now you're just getting whiny.

The worst thing is not the expectation of getting apps for 1 dollar, instead of that, lots of people hacked their phones and got things for free.
I'd think about it several times, if all they guys pay for what they get, then the developer could make much more money and they can make apps better.

No offense, but you look a bit dickish when you say that stuff.
Are you saying your games are SO good that how dare anyone say it should be free? Cause that sounds a bit egotistical.

Plus, people sometimes expect software for free because they know there's no production costs..so technically the seller isn't losing any money from their pocket.
