Advertisement Advertisement 3 Comments Aman Kapoor December 31st, 1969 How does one play this cycle? Om Malik December 31st, 1969 Actually the pre-beta or alpha release cost $400,000; while the beta version cost $450,000. A year later, the final release is going for $600,000. Okay we should not let Microsofties see this business model! Anand Jain December 31st, 1969 This is hilarious. The only hope is the “final version” has been properly QA’ed and doesnt crash. Unlike software if it crashes, it cannot be fixed in the next release Comments are closed.
