Paying the bills are important, so if you're comfortable with your current position, I can't argue with that.
I just believe you could make so much more revenue if you had killer apps that included BlackBerry devices in your portfolio.
BTW, what apps (or kind of apps) are we talking about here?
I would like to know what we are missing out on? You may get great support from the community for your apps if they are useful and serve a purpose.

On the plus side, it does make RIM's claim that BB10 will launch with 100K apps a little less ridiculous. I can see Alec Saunders now:
"Let a thousand APK-to-BAR conversions bloom"

Now, App World is somewhat more involved to get into (they want some form of ID to prove you are who you say you are), so if you get busted pulling something, you run the risk of losing the right to offer products again. But with so many new devs (and staff presumably pretty overloaded approving apps), I'm sure there are probably several of these. I doubt that many, though.

The vetting for the $100 or the 10K guarantee are not for simple crappy, do-nothing apps just converted and slapped on App World. They have to be able to integrate with one or more of the core BB services, Working from scratch should enable RIM (and their third party partner) to check out apps with more scrutiny before allowing an app in AW. As with any program of this magnitude, we'll get a fair share of craptacular apps as well. Hopefully the ones we need are available. If not, then maybe, if BB10 has initial success, it may make some devs rethink their position.

When you have a website that allows people to upload stuff, IP infringement issues will inevitably occur. That's why websites like YouTube, App World, Google Play, and iTunes app allows right holders to make complaints. You expect people to not pirate stuff, but it is difficult for RIM to determine whether something's pirated. At the end of the day, app vendors should police themselves to check to see if their apps have been pirated. Of course, if the vendors actually ported them to BB10 the first place, it will be difficult for pirated app from making it into App World in the first place.
