Liu said that if a company claims that they have created 1 million jobs, one must be skeptical and assume that the number is exaggerated. But, she added that when Apple Inc.

(NASDAQ:AAPL) has created a whole new economy in US.

He pointed at collapse of old school telecom, due to tech advancements from companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). He said that even though Apple Inc.

Sterns pointed that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s App store has created a lot of millionaires in the last 6 years. She mentioned that most of the developers who work and make money from App store are part timers, under-employed, etc.

“But, I do wonder how many of the jobs they have created in this so called App economy. Obviously it has created a hand full of millionaires. How many of those people are working part time, how many of those people are actually under-employed. […] There are a lot of broader implications for the app economy,” Sterns said.
