Remember, when you buy an Apple device, you only get the world according to Apple. Next you find out that safari is blocking websites with "unsuitable content". Thanks for protecting us from... whatever you don't approve of apple... but you're probably right, if I'm dumb enough to buy your product after this, I'm probably too dumb to make any decisions for myself.

If owned an Apple device I would care but since I don't like wasting my money on crappy iDevices I don't care at all.

Probably most electronics you own are made in the same place.

This is exactly the same censorship attitude adopted by Apple ecosystem that turns me away from buying Apple products. No, it is not about me like the idea of a sweatshop or porno game. It is more about everybody who owns the device should be given a choice of what we want to use on our device. We do not need someone acting like big brother that forbides us to do this or that. For all we know, Apple might one day decided mkv video is evil and pull all apps that can play that format because it violates Apple guideline. Or you cannot run a calculator app because it is essentially an emulator to the actual calculator, and Apple forbides emulator.

This is not going to go well most here especially those who own Apple products but..

We all know where these products come from and under what conditions. While this game focused on clothing rather than electronics clearly those who buy a iPad, iPhone, or iPod simply don't care. The message the game tries to send was already lost when it targeted that audience and it's no surprise Apple took it down. The consumer is just as guilty as the company if they choose to support a company that does immoral practices.

We have adopted a out of sight, out of mind train of thought when it comes to human suffering that we are directly influencing. We all know it's going on but we place our greed on things we can easily live without before the well being of other human beings. We have not only become consumer wh*res but we've become monsters as well.

my first impression was apple was trying to look ok by dodging sweat shops they support... Then I find out apple wants to block people knowing they use and support sweat shops....
