Rob Shoesmith, a loyal Apple user who camped diligently outside Apple's Covent Garden, England store for ten nights waiting for the release of the iPhone 4S in October 2011, will sell his house and donate the funds to charity, after being inspired by the help of the homeless.
As part of his camping experiment, Rob was forbidden from spending any money and had to rely on the generosity of passers-by. Touched by the homeless people he came into contact with, Rob is promising to donate the proceeds of his house sale to a homeless charity if a million copies of his debut book – called Bin There Done That – are sold.
The book centres around how smartphone apps transformed Rob's life. The book is available for purchase from Amazon's Kindle book store and Apple's iBook store.
