Daring Fireball on Google's use of Private APIs

Here is an interesting posting, and nice bit of detective work on the part of John Gruber with some help from Robert Marini. I often agree with Mr. Gruber, but I especially agree with the sentiment of this posting, I do think the chances that the app just slipped through the approval process are greater than he seems to, though: I think it's very possible that the app just slipped through and wasn't actually given special consideration.

But if Google was given special consideration, then I completely agree that that sucks.

Edit: Here's another blog posting that expands on the theory. Thanks, Prasad!

I think there is a much darker reason for this. Google put a gun to Apple's head.
