I think FarmVille is a decent example. Etsy. Kijiji. PlentyOfFish. Scrabulous. Google. Ravelry. Twitter.
There's only one problem with this.
These killer apps are the realization of what was once an idea. No idea, no killer app. :-)
And one of the first things I learned about FaceBook was how to make FARMVILLE invisible. :-) More annoying than pop ups, able to drain hours of poeople who are supposed to be working in a single bound . . .
Then your IDEA is "software to kill annoying facebook features" and you make a firefox extension. With the popularity of Facebook you will be a millionaire next year.
To all of you people with no ideas. Please sticky me, I have dozens of web based ideas. I have books of general ideas. In my view, ideas are easy. Execution is hard, and picking the right idea is hard. If I have a new idea each day, and can only do one every year or so, which idea gets picked?
I wish I had more coding skills, then I would be set. Oh, well......
