Quiz: Planet of the Apps: A Hand-held Revolution

Question 1 of 10

What does the iPhone application "I Am Rich" do?

  1. "I Am Rich" consolidates high-interest credit card debt
  2. "I Am Rich" does nothing
  3. "I Am Rich" finds online gambling websites
  4. "I Am Rich" offers celebrity news updates
Correct!

Just as "Seinfeld" was a show about nothing, "I Am Rich" was an application that did nothing. When the app was launched, the screen displayed a single button. When the user pressed it, an affirmation would be displayed on-screen that said "I am rich, I deserv it, I am good, healthy & successful." The misspelling of "deserve" was intentional, as was the asking price of $999.99. "I Am Rich" was removed from the App Store the very next day after its release, with a grand total of eight people who actually bought it, one of whom did so by accident.
