    Yes, 50K apps with around 49.95K being nothing more than amateurish crapware. What definition of ‘milestone’ would that situation fit in?

    I'm here to echo what Collins has said. I bought a Samsung Focus as a backup should my iPhone get damaged, and while perusing the Marketplace I found it to be a wonderful example of why App Storess should be curated. I had to sort through quite a bit of junk to find something worth investigating. Angry Birds and Spotify won't cut it, and 1,000 "How to get chicks" apps for $1.99 won't do it either.
