Apple and its absurd prohibitions

5:16 AM Edited by Blony

Yesterday we talked about some applications for the iPhone that Apple had given the nod. Some understood the reasons, in others less so. However, none of the cases reached the absurd as it happened to Alberto CorbĂ­ with an application that allowed viewing Ding, we might broadly define as a database of the German lexicon, ie a dictionary.

Alberto preparing to make its application available to users via the Appstore, but Apple told him that his program included offensive content. When questioned a little further on the matter, sent him screen shots of the dictionary in which terms were searched as' fuck 'or' bitch '. For Apple to accept your application, Alberto had to remove such words from the dictionary. Is this really someone you can seem offensive to a dictionary containing such words?
