Time for Apple to Pay You!

So some good news for all my app/ Apple lovers out there. Apple‘s App Store is nearing the 50 billion downloads milestone, and the company is celebrating by rewarding users with cash prizes.

The person who downloads the 50 billionth app will get a $10,000 App Store Gift Card. People who download one of the first 50 apps after the milestone is reached can win $500. This sounds pretty darn good to me!

I suggest you all go out there and try to get some of these prizes. No purchase is necessary to enter the contest, which you can do by filling out this form..

Advertisements

Another one succumbs to advertising.

Ahhh slowly but surely all these social networks are getting worked! Yes believe it or not your Tumblr is ad-free no more ladies and gentlemen. On Monday, 22nd Tumblr announced that it will now serve ads on its Iphone and Android apps.

The move allows Tumblr to take advantage of the rapidly growing mobile advertising market, forecast to increase by 65% to $2.1 billion in the U.S. alone this year.

To me this is a very solid decision. While people love having these social networks they sometimes forget that somewhere somehow something has to be paid for! And hey if seeing a couple ads ensures that I’m able to continue to use these sites for free then I say why not?
