    There’s a website in the UK, who’ll offer you money for your old clothes CDs etc. They don’t resell these items, they simply destroy them all. They make far more from the advertising on the website. I was shocked to discover this when I phoned to ask if they had an old copy of a CD I was searching for.

    OK, somebody tell me how to get past the 2nd pipe, if I’m only using a mouse and keyboard, on my lap-top.

    I would think that a significant amount of money would come from people who buy the paid version of an app for the sole purpose of making the ads in the “free” version disappear.

    @phritzg – it was all ad revenue. The guy didn’t even release a paid version of the app. It earned so much because of it’s meteoric rise in app downloads and the fact that it make people so infuriated that they couldn’t stop playing!
    If you didn’t hear, the developer has since removed the game from all app stores. He was getting death threats from people on twitter/email and it changed his life so significantly that he couldn’t take it anymore. Not sure if I would go that far earning $50k/day, but to each his own!

    I think it was more like people who got jealous (like in the cartoon), because a so simple app, that did not require much development, was not original (there are many games with the same mechanics already, since long ago) and not even original art was getting so much attention (and money). My guess is that the threats came from people who had similar apps and though that if the app was removed theirs would get that money, but it does not work like that. most of the apps traffic is just luck (like in web pages), and I hope they get the people who made the threats

    And a little upset that somebody in the company didn’t think of it first so she could take the credit for it.
