    Not really. That's more than I would have expected. I didn't think that many people listened to Stern.

    Who the fuck would get an app that says Beth is better looking than Angelina Jolie??
    It is a totally farcical app.

    Apple gets 30 cents on every app sold, Howard gets a $1.00.

    Now you know why it costs $4.99 now.;)

    Was only referring to the spelling, not the reference.

    It was the Al Michaels/Peter Jennings/ "Bababooey to you all" call. :)

    When the price drops to .99, it may be worthwhile for someone to buy it and show that for 10 different pics of the same person, you get 10 results. I presume it measures facial symmetry, which can easily be tinkered with by changing the position of your chin. There is a lot of interesting science behind instinctual attraction, but you'll get none of it from that shitty app.

    This show put out a few years ago has a nice overview of the issue:
