Apple Apps Worth Billions

There should be an image here!Apple is apparently, a defining force in the world of mobile application sales. What is interesting, is that this was not always the case.  Seeing Apple turn app sales into a multi-billion dollar business, is something that should be studied by anyone who cares to duplicate this kind of success.

No, I believe that the above linked article is spot on in the point that Apple has single handedly revamped the mobile software market in a way, that changes everything. Perhaps most incredibly, will be that Apple is expected to take this even further in the years to come. Going from billions to something even more substantial, is completely possible.

Is Apple developing its own industry? Well actually, they already have. Before the iPhone, the mobile phone industry was nothing in comparison to what it is today. So even if you are not an Apple fan, you have to be impressed with the growth that the Apple app industry has seen.

    I’m not a fan of this move – neither am I a fan of your reasoning. While your description of yourself at 19 is amusing (and possibly a reasonably accurate representation of most kids that age) there are exceptions. College can kill a spirit as surely as it can educate a mind, not all do, but it doesn’t make college the most nurturing environment for most entrepreneurially minded individuals. And then there’s the investment… You say that they are throwing away their investment, the money they will be given only pays their school debt to date making it a wash. From this, can we not infer that you believe the value in college is in the completion not the education, the degree and not the knowledge? Because otherwise they have already received value for the money they have paid (and borrowed) have they not? Makes me wonder what you think the REAL value is in a college education. Babysitting until you’re old enough to have some sense and a scrap of paper that says you’ve jumped through a set of hoops? No wonder a college education is so expensive!
