CrackBerry Kevin single-handedly makes Google Play profitable

Not content to merely put BlackBerry App World in the black by buying $500 clock apps, found and Mobile Nations chief-of-chiefs Kevin Michaluk has now turned his attention to Google Play... and bought a $200 vuvuzela app.


What makes it worth $200 more than all the free vuvuzela apps littering the former Android Market?

Surprisingly enough, the answer to that question is that the app features a picture of an iPhone holding a Vuvuzela! Hilarious. The developers really should be ashamed of themselves for this one. I also found the app crashed a lot, and though it looked like there was a menu for more options, it never opened.


Lucky for Kevin, Google Play currently caps apps at $200, or he could have been out the downpayment for a Winnipeg house.

Can't wait to see what Kevin buys when his Mobile Nations World Tour hits iOS and iMore.

For $200 you got yourself an advanced preview of the new iPhone 5... apparently it will have a kickstand in the form of arms and legs and a Vuvuzela ring tone. $200, well spent. :)

DLP Mobile hopes for idiots like Kevin and apparently they found 50+ so far. The world and country is in the worst economic state since the Great Depression, millions of people are unemployed. Millions will fall asleep tonight hungry. But this idiot blows $200 on complete bs. Way to go. Why don't you post a video of yourself donating $200 if you have so much money to blow?

Nailed it with the last part. The $500 blackberry app was funny at first, but now its becoming pretty clear somebody just likes to flaunt his money.

Oh and since we are having so much silly fun, why don't we see how many people can unsubscribe to their Twitter/Facebook/YouTube etc. Here is 1!
