Fortunatus a waste of $500

Are you rich? Do you only like chatting with rich people? Meet Fortunatus, a $500 Windows Mobile app that does nothing but display a diamond and allow you to chat with other fat cats who could have fed a family of five for a week or more but instead bought this app. You have to appreciate the honesty of the feature listing, though:

  • Show you are rich
  • For the wealthy gentlemen
  • Show you have the money
  • Chat with fellow rich people

Nice. Oh, and the developer's Web site?  It's blank. Well, it does say "Website coming soon." Don't buy this. Ever. [msm via wmpu]
