Pricing an iPhone app: Don’t sell your software short.

I was doing some research trying to decide how to price and promote the app I’m building for the iPhone and I came across this article. It points out the really obvious fact that if you are trying to do iPhone development full time then you need to charge enough for your app so that you can actually live on what money you do make.

It also points out that the current pricing structure of the app store is flawed. The article states that most if not all apps should be bumped up $10.00 in price, $0.99 apps becoming $9.99, $4.99 becoming $14.99. This is a very valid point, how can anyone expect to live on $0.70 a copy of their software? Don’t say they will make it up in volume because that is much harder than one would think.

I now need to sit down and figure out how much I should charge and make sure that I would actually be able to make money with what I’m planning.

Florida Amendment 2: Ban on Gay Marriage – Shame on Florida.

Florida,

Stop being a prick. You need to realize that you really are not part of the ‘south’. Don’t feel bad. I’ll let you in on a little secret, the south lost and it will not rise again. This is was your chance to get up from the kiddie table and come sit with the grown ups. You were ok with a black guy running the show but those dirty crazy gays getting married, that was too much?

I really thought we would do the right thing and give everyone equal rights. Every black person who voted Yes on Amendment 2 you should keep an eye out for colored only water fountains and restrooms. If fags can’t get married why should you have you get to share our water fountains, maybe you’ll get black germs on them and the little white girls will get them, better be safe than sorry right? Women who voted Yes on Amendment 2 why were you out voting? Shouldn’t you have been in the kitchen making pies? After all, thats what women are for right? Voting is serious business I don’t know if your little minds can handle it.

In closing. Good fucking job Florida. Way to show off just how fucked up we are. Black guy for president A-OK. Fags and lezzies want to show they love each other not ok.

I don’t know if I should be angry or just go sit in the corner and be sad at how shitty this is.

Graces’ first Halloween: oh god its dark lets cry alot

Grace’s first Halloween didn’t go exactally as planned.
Cute costume: Check
Bag for candy: Check
Safe neighborhood to take her around in: Check
45 minutes of crying: Check

Wait. What? After getting her all dressed up as snow white with a bow and shoes and everything we hopped in the car with her grandma and were off to score some candy. Mmm candy. As we were getting close to where we were going she started to get upset. We figured of was because she didn’t want to be in the car anymore. Boy were we wrong.
She go more and more upset as we walked around. We made it all of 100ft from the car before we decided to go back and take the costume off and see how she was. It didn’t help. She was angry and tired.

Let’s hope thanksgiving goes better.
