    It's so sad to see kids iPod Touches filled with crap-apps... One day I was in school and at breaktime every body was showing their iTouch and I saw what apps they had....Oh my god....It was sad....really sad... All of the boys had apps like iFart, Be like Lil' Wayne, Flashlight, iZippo Lighter, iBeer, and Shotgun. Then the Girls had, iMirror, Be Like Lady Gaga (No Surprise), Lie Detector Test, and iZippo (What's New...). Here's my point, look at the top paid apps, then look at the top free apps, there's something in common...it's the QUALITY! I mean look at "All 51 Games FREE!", the common iDevice owner probably thought "I can get 51 games for free!?! Awesome...." It's just sad to see apps like this come to the top and take hold of a spot for a while. It just makes me mad that there are devs out there who work their butts off to make a great game and it doesn't get any attention. It hurts! I'd be disappointed if that were me! Sorry about ranting but, I think the hard-working devs need a chance, not Khalid Shaikh, DS Effects, LOLriffic Stuff, or Royal Gadget. Who's with me? :)

    I get an ego boost knowing that other people have crap while I have a gold mine.

    Well, being kids, they are probably not the richest of citizens and therefore will download any app so long as it's free. Regardless of quality.
    I get what you are saying but those kids can do what they want, and I don't blame them for only downloading free apps. At their age, it's not like they can afford all of these premium games which are coming out at quite a rate.

    You make it sound like it's hard to access. In my area there's an itunes giftcard at every single checkout counter. I'm sure kids can afford 15$ a week on newspaper deliveries.

    I am pretty sure paper boy is not even a real job anymore. Such an 80s thing. If your a kid your gonna have a hard time getting a job before 16, employers don't like the whole workers permeant thing. Not to say it is impossible, My friend works at a record store.

    Just listens to music all day and gets $128 a week for 16 hours of work. Lucky bastard. :eek:

    I take advantage of this and mow rich people's lawns. I get $110 a week for mowing three different lawns... It's about an hour and a half of work, and it's mostly driving around on my dad's riding mower... I do admit that part's a bit cheap, and I'm lucky I can use that. But still. Yay for rich people who dun like to mow their lawns. :D

    I am just saying this from an employers standpoint. Would your rather hire a 15 year with a permeant that your have to give extra breaks to, or a 30 year old who would do anything for a job?

    Its possible to get one of those jobs, but with an inflexible high schooler schedule with sports and stuff, your childhood is gonna take a major hit.

    I don't see many 30 year old baggers at my supermarket.

    And your childhood is gonna end sometime, might aswell get ready for the real world and get a job, that's what I did.
