Advertising is marketing. But not all marketing is advertising.

Too many people want to get rich by selling apps and expect Apple to pay for the marketing of their apps for free on the App Store.
The App Store serves one purpose - not to promote your apps, but to make money for Apple.
If you want to go into business selling an app for iOS then you need to have some plan in place to market it. That doesn't mean sticking it on the App Store and hoping for the best.
If you can't afford to market your app (either by paying for advertising somewhere or just physically spending your own time promoting it) then you really shouldn't waste money or time to develop it either.
I'd be pretty cnocerned about them too.

I'd love to know.

The Kalashnikov Lawnmower. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to cut every motherf***ing blade of grass in the garden, accept no substitutes.
The files are stored on the ISS, and can only be unlocked by a direct laser link communication channel.
Isn't that obvious?
Bring back a mammoth.

... they'll all die of starvation anyway.
Maybe a bit overdramatic - but the truth is that overpopulation is every bit as much of a problem as climate change - if not more so.
One could argue these two problems may eventually even each other out - but I wouldn't like to think of that as any kind of positive solution.
