BusinessWeek Cover Story on Apps

Interesting story on apps from the Nov 2 issue of BusinessWeek.

Titled "Inside the App Economy", this piece talks about the various plug in type applications being used either on mobile phones or as widgets in social networking sites such as Facebook.

Related to a story previously linked to about m-commerce over phones, the cover story provides a good look at a business type that didn't even exist a few years ago.


In the same vein of new businesses (and careers), this same issue of BusinessWeek also had an article about VC investments in the field of Clean Tech as well as one about former Boeing employees titled "When the Laid Off are Better Off."
