Sustainable Indie Software — Helftone:

If things continue as they are [trending towards unsustainable 99¢ app prices], we are on the path to miss out on a lot of innovation. Large companies are not even interested in making software that grosses anything in the $100-200k range (that figure might only cover a single engineer's salary, not including additional taxes and costs like offices etc). But that sort of money is significant enough to have an indie dev work on your favourite app full time.

That's really the dream, isn't it? Presented realistically enough, but still the dream. (via Michael Tsai's excellent blog)
