Apple launches 'try before you buy' apps - CNN.com They do what we have been doing for a year and a half, half ass the hell out of it, and consider it newsworthy. Awesome. My favorite bit: "But we're fairly certain that a "try before you buy" policy might be an effective deterrent for would-be app pirates, the actions of whom have apparently cost the App Store around half a billion dollars". No, it wont. Pirates will be pirates; but good luck with that. Continue "innovating", I suppose.
