Apple calls for developers to star in reality show ‘Planet of the Apps’ – July 13, 2016


  1. Depends. Look at “Top Gear” or “Three and a Half Men” or many other examples. The old one were done well. The new one….not so much.

    The thing that puts me off Top Gear is that guy from “Friends”. The thing that puts me of “Three and a Half Men” is that guy who thought he was Steve Jobs. The thing that puts me off “POTA” is that guy from Black Eyed Peas.
