Recently tech tracker website Gizmodo reported that 100,000 applications are now available for the iPhone. Earlier this week, Apple has been reported that iPhone customers have downloaded 3 billion applications since it launched the App Store, a marketplace for these applications that do everything from play games to translate words. I thought to myself that is a lot of money. How many of those 100,000 applications do you think were developed by African Americans? How many of the 3 billion downloads can be attributed to African American CONSUMERS. What are the percentages and how do they compare? I would love to have the answer to these questions. What do you think? If anyone has this information, please respond. My guess is that the percentage of downloads far outpaces the percentages of applications developed. And we need to change that!
