Apple "Apple has changed its iOS developer guidelines, adding a clause (on September 12, a source tells me) that reads: 'Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected.' That's a change that could have wide-reaching effects, especially on promotion models that offer developers a paid top slot on app recommendation offerings like FreeAppADay, Daily App Dream and more." Weird clause. Doesn't really seem to address any issue I can think of.

It prevents developers from bypassing apple's ad system and generating revenue by promoting someone else's product. Something the developers presumably do for a fee.

Nothing hugely controversial here, I don't think. Anyone who sees Apple as the root of all evil will continue to do so. To me this behaviour is logical for someone in Apple's position.
