    Okay, it's not really back, but check this out. You can totally trick your friends.

    1. Go here: http://web.me.com/thespaz
    2. Click the [+] icon at the bottom of Safari
    3. Add this web app to your home screen
    4. Tap it and let it load
    5. Then close it and find a friend!

    This is kinda funny... I'm gonna go find someone to trick. Have fun you guys!

    Edit: If you're not sure what "I Am Rich" was... it was an app on the App Store a while back that sold for $999... 4 people bought it before Apple pulled it off the store. See here: http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/99999-i-am-rich-app-hits-the-app-store/

    Cydia has "Am I Rich", which is a real application, exactly the same as the original.

    Only it's free. :D

    You're right. :cool:

    Fits in well with the "10 reasons not to jailbreak" thread. :)

    The fun thing about the "I am Rich" app...it didn't require any programming at all. Not one line of code to create it. When you create a brand new app, you can choose from a few templates to use...one of them is just a blank screen with the "I" infomation button, and pressing it rotates the screen to a blank backside. You can then run an "Interface Builder" to drag a picture onto either side of the screen, and/or text.

    So the entire amount of work this person did to create the app was to draw or find the art :) For which he charged $999...
