    An interesting blog post over at the BBC New Technology website. The news presenter was invited to a 'media gathering' in Apple's Regeant St Store, where he and others were demoed a few App Store games (a couple of these seem to have been released to App store yesterday) - also talk about the demo of Tiger Woods game - AND - in the comments section, responds to one of the readers questions around sat nav apps not being in app store with:

    "He was keen to stress that Apple doesn't choose which apps are created and doesn't necessarily know what is upcoming. But he did say there was no reason why a TomTom or a Spotify should be barred from the store.

    I understand that Spotify is working on an app - but t's some way from completion"

    I stopped reading at" 500 million products sold" which is clearly false.

    You have access to alternate download figures from the App Store?

    It should be 500 mil downloads not sold.
