With Apple iTunes recently surpassing 1 billion downloads and apps sprouting faster than crab grass, many people are finding out the hard way that all apps are not created equal. In fact a number of "free apps" are not so free when you add in the cost of optional add-ons that can add up to big bucks.  In one case the charges to one family in Great Britain added up to more than $2,500 USD when their 5-year old was let loose on an iPad with a game that was supposedly free.  Not to mention the prevalence of adware and malware that hitches a ride to many free apps, this episode will see us show you how not to get gamed online.
