Back in early January we saw an update for the case that had Apple going after Amazon for the use of the term app store. At that time US District Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled that there was no false advertising on the part of Amazon.

An ex-Apple employee that spent his time sifting through iOS App Store submissions talked a bit about what life was like at Apple in an interview. Mike Lee has, if nothing else, an interesting experience to relay. People have this idea that there are 100 people in India doing app reviews.
