“Apple Feats is an achievment system for developers of iPhone and iPod Touch applications. The Apple Feats business model is a dual licensing model. Feats is distributed under the GNU public license (GPL) with a clause that allows you to buy out the GPL with a commercial license. By releasing under GPL, Feats increases its distribution and userbase size. It also creates a standard for a rewards system for iPhone/iPod Touch developers who want to reward heavy users of their applications whether they are games, entertainment, productivity, or utility apps. Licensing costs will be used to maintain website and widgets to display users accumulated ‘Feats’ along with other statistics.”

This is not a real product (today). It is an elevator pitch for a new product that would benefit the iPhone/iPod Touch development community to increase user activity while adding a reward system to heavy users. It follows the business model of MySQL which we just covered in our Tech Strategy class. If you have feedback, please leave it in the comments. Let me know your thoughts.
