Pay To Play: article on Wired.com

Hi everyone,

I just read through this article on Wired.com, and I thought it might interest some people on this board:

Pay to Play: Some iPhone App Sites Demand Money for Reviews

It's interesting to note that the FTC has gotten involved in this, to an extent.

I think it's positive the issue is receiving more exposure. Whether you think it's unethical practice or not, I think we can all agree the more that customers are aware of this, the better.
