Build a business case: developing custom apps

Apple handed out 100 iPod Nanos to kids who lost their homes in the recent Californian fires, though without homes or computers it's not clear how they'll manage to get any music onto them.

Local resident Steve Boyack emailed Steve Jobs and asked if he could send over a few iPods for the teenagers, having seen how various groups were collecting toys for the younger children and the teenagers weren't getting anything.

"It seemed like the high school kids were being left out,” Boyack told SignOnSanDiego. "iPods are an accessory most kids like and can't live without.”

While it's hardly likely to make up for losing everything they owned the gesture was appreciated by the kids, and Apple seem strangely reluctant to capitalise on the publicity, so we'll have to chalk this one up to Christmas spirit, or a moment of insanity at Cupertino. ®
