I can create software for the web. I can create software for Windows. For the Mac. For Linux. For the Windows phone. For the iPhone. For the iPad. For any other phone.
Technology isn't the challenge. The challenge is in The Idea. You -- *I* -- will never "make it big" because we're able to write an application for, say, the iPad. The degree to which we "hit the big time" is directly related to coming up with A Great Idea.
Give me an idea, and I'll make my millions. Until then, I might as well throw mashmallows at a brick wall.
