BlackBerry users suffering from iPhone application envy will soon be
able to purchase games and other software directly from their coveted
devices through a new online marketplace from Research In Motion Ltd.
I’m not suffering any iPhone envy, I think Apple is cool and way better than Microsoft but definitely over-hyped and over-priced. I do agree this is a great move on RIM’s part: not everyone wants to search the internet for new software or remember where they got stuff from. Having it all in one place makes it easy to find – it becomes a feature. To compete with Apple this is a feature that RIM needs.
And as a hacker, hopefully one or two workable bits of my code will show one day!
