Submission + - How would one sell a web application? (

rastakid writes: "I've just started the selling process of a web (2.0, so you will) application I wrote, called It's an online desktop environment built in PHP using AJAX technology. It started out as a hobby project to learn AJAX development but it soon grew much further than that with features being added on a weekly basis. Now that I (and a couple of friends who helped me on this project) are moving on to other things we don't want to let our work go to waste and decided to sell the source code, art material and domain name.

Based on the features and the possibilities of this application we decided to go for an amount of EUR 5,000.-. In our opinion that's enough to be considered serious and not too much for smaller companies to pay. Our target audience consists of entrepreneurs, companies (intranet) and schools.

My question: how would one go about selling such a web application? Where do we market such a sale? Any tips would be appreciated.

Note: If you would like to have more information about the application: please visit"

Feed Engadget: Virtual bubblewrap: the best / worst gadget ever made (

Filed under: Misc. Gadgets

Bandai Asovision has taken possibly the most enjoyable side benefit of having a gadget obsessed life and made it 100% legitimate with the PuchiPuchi, a gadget that emulates the joy of popping bubble wrap. The PuchiPuchi simply features eight buttons that each make a popping sound when you press them: for extra enjoyment, the creators have sought to include bonus popping sounds like "door chime" and "sexy voice" every 100 pops, and there's also a one-in-a-thousand chance that your PuchiPuchi will be a super special "puchi lucky" toy with a heart shaped bubble. Frankly, the concept is so absurd -- and, well, Japanese -- that it might just work. Still, we've got to admit to hoping that each PuchiPuchi includes a healthy portion of real bubble wrap on the side.

Journal Journal: I'll have an iPhone, minus the phone, please

With the recent announcement that the iPhone will include a custom YouTube application, my interest in the phone has increased 100%. Or 400%. Or 25%. Or -30%. They all wind up with the same initial and final value.

That's not to say I wouldn't want something like the iPhone, I just don't want the iPhone itself. In fact, if you remove the phone part and just leave everything else, I'd love to have that gadget.
