I was slightly disappointed by the initial sales figures (Who doesn't dream of hitting the jackpot). It's been an interesting month though so I thought I'd share my sales statistics.
For anyone planning to make a living from iPhone apps — take a look at the first couple of weeks of sales and make note of the fact that the app is selling for only $0.99. For those of you who like to dream of making it to the big time — take a look at the last few days of sales on the UK app store and imagine what it would like if that was happening in 50 countries!
If you don't want to read the artical, then here's the executive summary, first couple of weeks 0-10 sales a day, last couple of days 300-350 sales a day.
theraindog writes: AMD's former manufacturing division opened for business last week as GlobalFoundries, but the spin-off may run afoul of AMD's 2001 cross-licensing agreement with Intel. Indeed, Intel has formally accused AMD of violating the agreement, and threatened to terminate the company's licenses in 60 days if a resolution is not found. Intel contends that GlobalFoundries is not a subsidiary of AMD, and thus is not covered by the licensing agreement. AMD has fired back, insisting that it has done nothing wrong, and that Intel's threat constitutes a violation of the deal. At stake is not only AMD's ability to build processors that use Intel's x86 technology, but also Intel's ability to use AMD's x86-64 tech in its CPUs.

He said: "The number of Muslim students has grown considerably in the last 10 to 20 years and a higher proportion of Muslim families do not accept evolutionary theory compared with Christian families.
"That's one reason why it's more of an issue in [UK] schools."
"By not dismissing their beliefs, we can ensure that these students learn what evolutionary theory really says — and give everyone the understanding to respect the views of others," he added.
