Autocractic maker of toys for people with more money than sense, Steve Jobs has ordered a censorship campaign on his companies web site.
Not only does it fear Google so much that it is banning applications that work with the outfit, it is now censoring any mention of any products the company makes.
An application was blocked by Jobs’ Mob because the description mentioned Google’s Android.
The application in question is “Flash of Genius: SAT Vocab” and the application had a note that read “Finalist in Google’s Android Developer’s Challenge!”
The Loony Apple Censorship boys went puce at the mention of a competing OS in its turf and demanded the developer to remove it. The developer had too otherwise he could not peddle his app.
Apple told him: “Providing future platform compatibility plans or other general platform references are not relevant in the context of the iPhone App Store. While your application has not been rejected, it would be appropriate to remove from the Application Description.”
It otherwords if it is not praising Apple and Steve Jobs to the stars then it cannot be mentioned on a description. We guess it is ok to be praised by the competition but you have to pretend it didn’t happen if you want to sell it in Jobs’ digital software catalogue.
