The Windows Phone 7 isn’t even in stores yet but plenty of reviewers and Microsofties already have them. And in the app store that is already live, the number one paid app is Farting Dino. That’s right: people are paying money for a fart app. Steve Jobs recently said that the world doesn’t need more fart apps but apparently he’s wrong because FART APPS ARE POWERFUL.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you.
