iPhone apps - the 10 smartest and the 10 stupidest

One man's meat is another man's poison

3 Big data security analytics techniques

No. 9

Smart: Bloomberg

They say: "Bloomberg offers news, stock quotes, company descriptions, market leaders/laggers, price charts, market trends analysis, and more."

The Reg says: Simply the best, most-complete, up-to-the-minute portable window into the financial Meltdown - and nascent recovery? - that we've seen.

Track your individual portfolio, keep your eye on foreign indexes and futures, or simply wallow in your own personal shame and financial degradation.

Bloomberg's interface looks pretty damn slick as well.

Price: free

Stupid: iPickupLines

They say: "Next time you are at a bar with like-minded singles or see a girl you wouldn't mind dating simply break out iPickupLines and let the laughs begin!"

The Reg says: Take this app out when on the make, and the aforementioned laughs will be at you, not with you.

Examples of suggested pickup lines: "If you were the new burger at McDonalds you would be the Mcgorgeous!" "If you were a booger I'd pick you first." "Baby you're like a student and I am like a math book, you solve all of my problems."

And, of course, in the flatulent iPhone tradition, "Do you mind if I hang out here until it's safe back where I farted?"

Noel Coward would not be amused.
