    Regarding AppBar, they really make a big deal about their service being FREE!!, as if it is just too good to be true!  Well of course it is free, when you read the Terms of Acceptance and see that they retain absolute rights to whatever you create and do not ever have to pay you a dime if you happen to come up with the next killer app!  This seems similar to the "New Journalism" of AOL - Huffington Post to get free content writers from people just excited to get the opportunity to get broader exposure.  Definitely an example of one of the darker sides of the internet.
