Amazon Giving Away An App A Day ... (but they're crap apps anyway)

Akinator?  Seriously?  And at least one version of Angry Birds a week. Well I suppose a full license to Documents To Go is too much to ask.  Oh wait, Palm did that already.  Hmm... And look where that got 'em.

Maybe Amazon is right. Amazon certainly makes more money than I do. Maybe giving away something worth paying for in the first place is a bad idea. The strategy is giving away nothing for something has worked notoriously well for the fast food industry.

So maybe giving away electronic equivalent of a Happy Meal "prize" isn't such a bad idea after all.  So rock on, Amazon, I'm McLovin' it!
