Apple shilling it's apps?

Go into iTunes and look at the reviews for Keynote.

Seriously Apple? The F***?

Edit: Don't lok at the review from Blizaine51. It doesn't count XD

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

Just 3 reviews and 8 ratings. Dont think that counts as shilling. I've seen more than that for other iPad apps already.
