Comment: People expecting their marketing for free (Score 5, Insightful) 258

Too many people want to get rich by selling apps and expect Apple to pay for the marketing of their apps for free on the App Store.

The App Store serves one purpose - not to promote your apps, but to make money for Apple.

If you want to go into business selling an app for iOS then you need to have some plan in place to market it. That doesn't mean sticking it on the App Store and hoping for the best.

If you can't afford to market your app (either by paying for advertising somewhere or just physically spending your own time promoting it) then you really shouldn't waste money or time to develop it either.

"I would prefer to have invented a machine that people could use and that would help farmers with their work – for example a lawnmower."

The Kalashnikov Lawnmower. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to cut every motherf***ing blade of grass in the garden, accept no substitutes.

... they'll all die of starvation anyway.

Maybe a bit overdramatic - but the truth is that overpopulation is every bit as much of a problem as climate change - if not more so.

One could argue these two problems may eventually even each other out - but I wouldn't like to think of that as any kind of positive solution.

You are an insult to my intelligence! I demand that you log off immediately.
