'Out Now' criteria

What criteria does this site use to determine whether a game shows up in the weekly 'Out Now' articles? Do they need to show up in the top 100 list from Apple (or top 50 or something like that)? Or does someone try all the games that come out (I know there are a ton) and weed out most of them?

On Wednesday I released a pretty simple game, created a thread in the iPhone and iPad Games forum, but saw no mention in the Out Now post. I'm wondering if there was something I needed to do to get it to show up, or if the numbers were just not in my favor (I'm guessing the later, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask).

Someone from TA would have to clarify, but I know they can't capture EVERY game. Loads come out. The comment section on those posts will usually mention any good titles that TA might not have.
