This week Steve Job's from Apple announced that there was actually a kill switch built into Apple App Store applications that would allow Apple to remove applications from a user's phone if applications were found to be stealing personal data. At the same time Apple also announced that it had already removed one application from the App Store -- called I Am Rich.

The application did absolutely nothing and merely showed a red gem on the screen of the iPhone. The developer of application -- Armin Heinrich -- said he was not aware of any app store rules he had violated, yet Apple removed his application anyway. An Apple spokesperson said that removing application from the App Store was a gut call.

What the application did do was cost a lot of money, at least eight people forked over £600 for the application. That netted the developer of $5600 and Apple's cut was $2400.
