I have to say, this is pretty impressive.

Up to 1 $Billion in iPhone App sales...

http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/tech_and_web/article4504600.ece

Even Sega is impressed enough to suggest that the iPhone might actually end up making inroads into another arena....

namely...Portable Game Platforms.

And to think Ballmer thought that the iPhone was a joke... Wink

Another slice of humble pie anyone ?

Cheers

Not to be too sceptical, but I think its a bit of a stretch to extrapolate the first 30 days sales over the next 330. Nice for a short term boost to Apple's share price, maybe some stock options are due for exercise Wink

Yep...

Given the recent battering the US economy has been under, any good news, like this straw of hope...suddenly becomes an inflatable raft in the eyes of a drowning man... Wink
