    This.

    Is.

    Ridiculous.




    Who is so poor that they find the need to pirate $.99 applications?


    I mean, seriously.

    I spent $122 this morning on applications, and I don't regret it a single bit.

    How would you feel if you spent weeks developing something just to have some juvenile arsehole steal it.

    ESTIMATED.
    This data could be completley wrong which it most likely is, considering that 50% of iDevices arent even jailbroken.

    The actual revenue loss may not be that significant...since people who pirate these apps are those that are (for many reasons) unable to pay for these apps.

    And ...50%-90%??? Isn't that a very huge range of uncertainty over the exact percentage? Doesn't seem to be a very reliable estimate to me.
