Rumblings in the Store

Since Apple controls what gets in and what does not get in the App Store, the burden is on it to clearly define what the criteria is for inclusion and rejection. As John Gruber points out in this excellent piece:
Exactly right. If you only find out at the end of the development process that your app has been rejected — not for a technical problem that you can address but because Apple deems the entire concept to be out of bounds — then who is going to put serious time and talent into an iPhone app?
With great power comes great responsibility and with that transparency.
