Upcoming LiveBlog: CNBC's Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution!

Planet of the Apps! One of my plans for 2010 is to cover more items of interest on this site, and use some pretty cool ways of doing it. Now, LiveBlogging certainly isn't new, but it is new at!

And I thought the upcoming CNBC Special Planet of the Apps: The Handheld Revolution! was the perfect blend of the new and a topic that I think would interest you, Constant Reader.

A little about the show directly from the CNBC site:

Apps are everywhere. In less than two years, the app craze has taken over. These small applications – or apps – that fit on our mobile phone do everything from helping us accomplish mundane tasks to keeping us entertained while we wait for the bus.

Apps are popular and profitable. Studies estimate, the Apple iPhone apps store alone generates about $200 million a month in sales. Innovative and often addictive apps are changing the way we work and live.

Welcome to Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution. In this hour we’ll look at how apps have changed our lives, meet some of the creators behind them, and figure out just how big a business they really are.

CNBC's Planet of the Apps: A Hand-held Revolution takes a look at how the industry is changing the way we live.
