iPhone App sales reach US$1 million per day

The iPhone App store is proving very profitable for both Apple and third-party application developers, with apple expecting its cut of the revenue to exceed US$360 million per year.

Sales at Apple's iPhone App store have reached US$1 million (AUD$1.13 million) a day after just over a month of operation.

Over 60 million programs have been downloaded since the store was launched on July 10.

The store is proving lucrative to Apple, despite internal expectations that it would prove unprofitable.

Steve Jobs has predicted that Apple will earn at least US$360 million a year from the store, and analyst Piper Jaffray has predicted even larger profits of over US$1 billion.

Third party developers earn a 70 percent cut of the sales of apps sold through the store.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
