There was a great story this week about a young lad who has sold his Smartphone app for “many millions of pounds”. It’s a great success story.
For some reason the BBC felt this would be a great topic for reader feedback (I wonder what conditions they use to determine this). The lowest rated (thankfully) was from someone who sounds extremely bitter. Passed up for a promotion by any chance?
As a former electronics engineer I find stories like this irritating. Pathetic little apps, used by pathetic little people to supposedly enrich their pathetic little lives. Truly we could do without this. How many good engineers are being distracted away from serious technology (medical, space) in order to program games and useless apps on the quest to become the next apps millionaire. Shame.
What a truly horrible person.
