How many apps have you purchased or downloaded?
Well, I just went through the purchase history on iTunes, to put together a complete list of the apps I have purchased.
Let me just say...far too many, far too much money.
I have purchased/downloaded a total of 285 apps. Now most of them have been free (184 of them) but I have spent far too much money.
I have decided this instant access is very dangerous - especially when apps go on sale, or for apps that are in the $99 to $2.99 range. It is easy to justify buying those (it's the cost of a cheeseburger, or a cup of coffee) but because you have such direct and unlimited access (and you spend the money just by pushing a button - something casinos have taken advantage of for years) you can very easily loose track of how much you are spending!
The most annoying thing is that many of the apps I have paid for I have only used once or twice, before I decided it wasn't something I wanted to keep on my iPhone.

I'm buying my iPhone on Sunday and I already have 22 free apps downloaded (iTunes app store = very cool). I've also ended up with $50 in iTunes gift cards between my birthday and work incentives so I'll be ready to go with the paid ones on Sunday
