Colbert Report, MTV News, Kayak.com pulled from the Marketplace?

Unfortunately we have no info on this, but yes, evidently the Colbert Report's The Word, MTV News and Kayak.com apps have been pulled from the Marketplace. And that's just what we know of  (anyone else see any others?).

Usually this happens because the app is broken, violates something in the Marketplace or perhaps the companies aren't happy with the app and what them redesigned (e.g. what happened with the Engadget app). It's even more odd since Colbert has been updated twice since its release, though it still shows v1.00.

We'll keep an ear out both as to a reason and if they return, but for now if you have 'em, best not to uninstall them.

Edit: Add 'Cartoon TV' to the list of missing apps and which we reviewed here.

(Thanks, SEKKDS, for the heads up)

The Cartoon TV app seems to me missing as well. Doesn't even come up in search results. This is strange because it was the featured app on the marketplace (including the background image for the apps category) the day I got my new Verizon HTC Trophy just last week.

I'm not surprised with Kayak. I tried to use it on the weekend and it wasn't able to search for flights.

I'm guessing it has something to do with licensing because my Cartoon TV will still play the stock videos but the live channel no longer works. I hope they plan on issuing refunds and perhaps offer a new app for the stock videos for 99 cents if the live channel is not going to come back.
