I don't talk about financial news here and market cap is a fairly meaningless number at the best of times, so why am I linking to this Bloomberg article? There's a fantastic graph at the bottom charting the rise and fall (mostly rise) of Apple's stock price over time against key events from their history. Even if you don't care about the stock market, it's worth spending 5 minutes with this.
I had missed this a few weeks ago, but came across it thanks to Michael Tsai's post this week. I'm not particularly surprised to see this happen though as Apple have a history of cracking down on apps that are using APIs in ways they were not intended. Blocking ad content outside of the iOS content blocking APIs certainly seems in line with that, but it's a shame nonetheless. I didn't use this app (or the other apps that were caught in this) but it doesn't seem like they were doing anything terrible, just not what Apple intended.
I just hope that this doesn't end up affecting Charles though, which apparently uses the same API.
