iPhone App Store Developer Bribery

While I love the iPhone and associated technologies like the iTunes App Store, I sometimes find flaws (gasp!). For instance, when the iTunes App Store first hit the street, you didn't have to download a given app to write a review for it. Next thing you know, you have punks trashing apps they've never even touched (pun intended). Luckily Apple fixed that and you now have to download an app before being able to review it. My other gripe is that when an app is updated with new features and bug fixes, the reviews should be wiped. This way people you don't have to hear about people griping about issues that have been fixed in the update.

Enough griping. Recently an iTune App Store developer decided to take it upon himself to bribe iPhone users purchasing his app. He offered a 2.00 incentive to leave a positive revies of the app. Someone, somewhere, somehow, caught on to the scam and the app was pulled from the store.
