Re: Malware that's useful...
There has also been some debate over whether or not Apple should continue to wield such absolute power of its platform -- when Apple can just put an end to Google and Facebook's earnest efforts as collateral damage to the apps that misbehaved.

Re: Malware that's useful...
It's been interesting to see the recent spat between Apple and Facebook over "internal apps" that have been sneakily snooping on users without Apple's explicit authorization. Facebook should have known better than to issue an iPhone app that basically snooped on all user traffic that worked around Apple's walled garden.

Apple's walled garden, tho, is a bit more difficult to infiltrate than Android's App Store. There are ways around Apple's App Store filters, but the end user usually has to manually try to avoid them. Side loading apps are not the mainstream way to download apps for iOS users.
