Affluent BlackBerry users can spread their smugness further with a pointless $600 (£379) app that shows they aren't just stupidly rich but also rich in stupidity. Fortunatus, from developer Sander Stall, dazzles displays with an image of a diamond and offers an exclusive chat room to mingle with other plump-pocketed pea-brains …
"RIM: 'We don't need 200 fart apps'"
Apparently just one socking great expensive one is enough for them.
When will people learn to talk proper?
"Do you have a lot of money? Than Fortunatus is something for you!"
Do you have trouble distinguishing between correct uses of the words 'Then' and 'Than'? If so, then the Reg forums are the place for you...
Shut up...you know who you are!!
Have this "15" on me.
while on android
you can get the same "I am rich" shit, for just $200 . See, android is better!
(i am rich may be just on appbrain, but even so...)
There's an old adage "A fool and his money are soon parted".
How did a fool become rich in the first place?
I must be nobody's fool, 'cos I'm generally skint(ish).
To all those Appletards
That believe we don't buy iShite because we can't afford it.
I say, if you don't own this app then you iPaupers should STFU.
Exclusive chat room for $600?
Given the potential market for this app, perhaps someone is trying to reproduce the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_monkey_theorem ?
it was an app on iPhones (for a few days until it was pulled, and everyone got a refund). that cost $999 and did nothing more than show a gem on the screen. From what I recall, about 10 people bought it, though at least a few did so because they thought it was a mistaken price and wanted to see what would happen.
Dumb people and money, oil and water I say.
Money laundering, anyone? And it's quicker and easier than losing at poker.
I'm tempted. $600 is a small price to pay for unfettered access to a chat room filled with hapless rubes.
I've been looking for a place to punt my game of Three-Card eMonte.
Sad sad sad
I love how the official screen shot is of a lone person chatting to themselves in what I can only imagine is a booze fueled stupor.
"Presented as badly as a 419 scam, we wonder how many people will fall for it."
Well, it's targeted towards stupid people. That's a huge market.
Some will say "stupid AND rich", that still leaves you with at least professional football players.
