Shaken babies? For what? More money?
In a not so shocking find Wednesday Apple pulled the Baby Shaker application. The company offered an apology for the deeply offensive and said “mistake” to having it available for download. I e-mailed Steve Jobs and asked him how he missed this application, for which I have not received any comments back from.
Perhaps the strong language or threat of calling CPS on his “baby” (Apple) kept him from replying. This of course is is coming from the same company that has South Park episodes available for download.
Perhaps Apple has bitten off more than it can chew. They stated last year they would review every application that was submitted for content. This however does not seem to be the case. Perhaps they should outsource to a third world country. Like they do with everything else. Also like everyone else.
I think the Baby Shaker as disturbing as it was, is a necessary evil. It sets up a nice example of how freedom of speech, and the right to create something so ugly and sell it makes this an awesome county. Was the application inappropriate, and wrong yeah. This is America people. If you don’t agree think of it like this. Stop staying your shoot the Zombie games because they remind me of your great grandmothers. Your shooting your Great-grandmother and to me thats offensive. Just as shaken Babies offend you.
