Ha Ha Ha [Big Grin] [Applause] [Applause]

Ok, so we need to leave aside such obvious criticisms as the objectification of women and pandering to the lowest common denominator, and if you can do that.... it is rather funny! [Smile]

However, on a serious note: Let us assume the following is a genuine and accurate quote from Apple - "Applications must not contain any Obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory content or materials of any kind (text, graphics, images, photographs, etc.), or other content or materials that in Apple’s reasonable judgment may be found objectionable by iPhone or iPod touch users.”

I can understand their position. As a hip and groovy computer and gizmo manufacturer they need to target a young demographic. And 'young' in this context is quite legitimately early teens and probably younger. Hence, Apple need to keep their image squeaky clean.

Dude, that's, like, stupid. Boobies that wiggle around when you wiggle your phone? WTF? It's like someone's just pandering to the stereotype geeks never leave their homes or something.

In the interests of fairness, perhaps someone should write the companion application....... iKnob. [Razz]

You mean we DO leave our homes?

iB(.)(.)bies looks like harmless fun.
We get into such a snit over the silliest things.

The sad thing is the same people buying the iBoobs would also be the ones buying the iKnob...

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Dang, that application looks really really funny!

I wonder, can you adjust the boobs to match your taste?

Apple isn't squeaky clean, they're squeaky pruddish (as the majority of americans).
