When we were in San Francisco for MacWorld the iPhone Alley team kept a close watch on our iPhones. We knew that being in a big city with lots of people would put us at a high risk for theft. We were careful to never leave our phones unattended and

Remember that dumb little iPhone app that was asking poor saps to shell out $1000 for a picture of a ruby? (I know, how could we forget that.) When I first saw that app, one of the first things that went through my head was wondering who would be dumb enough to buy it. The second thing was the hope that nobody would be unfortunate enough to click on that buy button by mistake. Since then, it was removed, but not before a whole 8 people "purchased" it.

Not to worry! Now you can let your hired help know they're beneath you with just the tap of a button, thanks to this new iPhone app, aptly titled "I am rich".
