    Heh heh, yeah. It's the curse of material possessions; some you use almost all the time, but others you may use once or twice and possibly forget about them and never use again.

    RE: Are you obsessed with apps?

    Yeah I remember my first day as well as it was just so overwhelming to see what was available that I wanted to go on a download spree.

    However as Mantis pointed out, you gotta be more careful now due to malicious authors and even legit ones getting hacked. Fortunately have not had that issue.

    If I had to describe a hacker who does that kind of stuff, it's kind of like that one guy who trolls everyone, but it's less of a playful troll on site like Youtube who just blatantly make fun of people "for the lulz" and more of an aggressive "4chan-esque" troll who derives pleasure from seeing 10-year old overreact to whatever the troll says.

    Yeah...nobody likes these kinds of hackers.

    RE: Are you obsessed with apps?

    Being a proud "non-owner" of an iPhone, I'm glad to say that I haven't fell victim to the app craze. I accept that there are some truly good apps out there, but the app and game market for smartphones is well and truly saturated. 90% of it seems to be useless novelties and cheaply made tat.

    Apps were never exclusive to the iPhone, and obviously they aren't now. Android is rising above the iPhone. But in the past "apps" have had a place in many forms. Take the phones before the iPhone, for example, such as the many versions of Windows Mobile, or then there's Palm OS. Don't forget the homebrew scene on many consoles. As with "apps", the vast majority of homebrew applications are user-created and rather simple. And similarly, you have to sift through homebrew to find the good titles since a lot of them are quite frankly tat.

    The app market isn't a craze. It's as much of a craze as you want it to be. Thanks to the applications available, my Android phone can do most of the things my computer can. I can even edit the ID3 tags of music I download, run a torrent client, or edit MKV videos and extract subtitles. Since I can run many apps at once, using instant messengers such as MSN is easy.

    RE: Are you obsessed with apps?

    Yeah, just like anything else, the apps craze is a consumer's market. I personally enjoy using the apps on my tablet if I'm on the go and that's pretty much it.

    Right now, though...is it funny or sad that I'm using my tablet as a mouse-pad?

    While you may be right about the fact that apps aren't exclusive to iphones, it seems that you are purposely ignoring the "there's an app for that" ad campaign. To say that the iphone app market isn't a craze is in my opinion, extremely short-sighted. In this case, I was specifically talking about the iphone, because I know as well as you do, it's not so much of a problem for other devices. However, that's not to say that mobile phone (and other) apps were always useful until the iphone came out. Remember the x-ray app, and other shit like that for Nokia and Sony Ericsson? I think the only reason it wasn't a craze back then is because most the services cost like 5 in phone credit every week. These days, 99p apps and freeware apps have well and truly created a fad. You only seemed to mention, specifically, what you do with your phones and other devices, and I'm talking about a following of the less tech-savvy majority here. That is what constitutes a craze, not what one person does. By saying that, you're assuming that everyone outside of the internet knows what MKV's and ID3 tags even are, and I assure you that this isn't the case. Far more people are interested in turning their shit into a lightsaber.

    It goes without saying that if a product becomes cheaper, it automatically becomes more favorable in the eyes of the consumer. It doesn't really matter about the quality of the app; as long as it's free, at least a few people will become interested.

    It's funny how you mentioned the lightsaber app. I remember fooling around with it once, and was it a worthwhile app? No. But it was free.

    Can't say that I would be. I can hardly even recall the last time that I used my phone's marketplace. Although sporting a Windows Phone might have something to do with that... But I already have all the essential, and even non-essential, features in my phone, so I feel no need to get more stuff that's usually only just unneccesary.

    I also don't do that on my computer, and apart from Steam games I hardly ever install anything new. Upgrades, sure, but actually new pieces of software I might install once or twice a year when I come across something that I really need. If it ain't broken, don't fix it - as they say!

    I think I am... lol. Never thought about it to the extent of obsession but I noticed that I use 15 GB of my iPad on apps alone, that's excluding the pictures, videos, and other app data that may be there. I use almost all of them though, so they are needed. A lot of the apps are also useful for college. I don't use them anymore since this is already summer holiday, but I will definitely use them over and over again. Some of the apps include note taking and documents/presentations viewing/editing, while others are specific to certain subjects relevant to my engineering major which come in very handy at times. So yes I might be obsessed, but with good justification. I need most of them, and they're easy to download/install and access at any time.
