Tom Kaneshige of CIO.com wonders what kinds of retailers lend themselves to development of an iPhone application and which do not.

"This year eBay made over $400 million off their iPhone app, and the app hasn't even been out the entire year." Kaneshige argues that iPhone apps make sense for many retailers, but those without a compelling reason to be used should be avoided.
