Mike Arrington on Sonic Lighter, a $1 “virtual lighter” iPhone app that is spreading quickly thanks to being location-aware. When you light it up, it registers on a global map.
Impressive when you consider that every dot on the map is a dollar. Update: My mistake, apparently every dot is just an “ignition”, so each dot doesn’t correlate to a unique user. Still, though, the thing looks crazy popular.
