Software as Bling

The Register reports that a new application "I Am Rich" is available for purchase for the iPhone. Americans may purchase it for a very reasonable $999.99 while Brits can look forward to paying a jolly good price of £599.99.
I think this is a relatively environmentally conscious way to let the world know how much available credit you are willing to spend to let people know that at least at one time you had at least that much available credit.
What does "I Am Rich" do you may ask? It's bling, its function is to signal to others that the owner has money. "I Am Rich" exceeds this requirement by displaying an image of a really big red gem on an iPhone in a very environmentally responsible way.
I hope that "I Am Rich" ushers in a new era of green bling.
