Change in Pocket Used to Rationalize Over $75 in App Purchases
Tempe, Ariz — Local seventh grade Biology teacher Mike DiSanto purchased Angry Birds on his iPhone today, bringing his total amount of money spent on apps to $75.
DiSanto’s behavior began when he first purchased an iPhone 3GS two years ago.
“At first I told myself that I wouldn’t waste money on cheap little games, but then they turned out to be cooler than I thought.
While slow at first, DiSanto’s app purchasing intensified as he became used to his new smartphone. As of October 2011, the change in his pocket rationalized up to three app purchases per week.
When asked if he felt the $75, which could have been spent on football tickets, a night on the town with friends, or any other activity, was excessive, DiSanto disagreed.
“I just bought a sandwich at lunch, so I’ve got at least $1.13 in my pocket.”
DiSanto then bought five apps prior to the conclusion of this interview.

Apple VP Rage-quits Instagram Because of Dirty Android Poors Ruining The Community
I have reported before on the ongoing battle of Instagram in the Phone Warz. It was taken to another level today when Apple Senior Vice-President Phil Schiller announced that he stopped using popular nostalgia photograph app Instagram.
Instagram is a great app and community. That hasn’t changed.
But one of the things I really liked about Instagram was that it was a small community of early adopters sharing their photographs.
Now that it has grow(n) much larger the signal to noise ratio is different.
That isn’t necessarily good or bad, it’s just not what I originally had fun with.
Mr. Schiller has a great point. The additional 5 million Android Instagram users are totally ruining it for the 30 million iPhone Instagram users. It’s like the Androids are taking over the
neighborhood app and ruining all of the iPhone users’ property values photo-sharing experience.
While this news is troubling, it does open the door for an entrepreneur to make another, more exclusive app similar to Instagram, but maybe this time it’ll look like grainy pictures from early 2 megapixel digital cameras.
Expect iPhone users to abandon Instagram en masse and move to
the suburbs a newer, app with three bedrooms and two and a half baths more image filters.
