Yes look at the last line in the article

"You have to get a special exception from a VP."

So did you find out if he got this permission before posting a title like that? What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

do we really care if he violated the apple app rules? without his violation the world would have missed out on such an amazing contribution to society.

"Innocent until proven guilty" never really happened (written policy, yes, but how often is it really followed?). This is America we're talking about. Land of the fee and home of the slave.

While I completely see where you're coming from, if that were the case, it would have made more sense for the Apple rep to say, "Phillip’s followed the necessary protocol for employees submitting applications to the App Store."

Instead she lied and said it was submitted and approved before he started working at Apple, which just wasn't the case.

Anyway, in the event that he did seek approval and was awarded permission for the apps, I've changed the wording of the title. : )

Peeing and farting apps? Quite an insult to Apple users. What they really need is an app that they can just look at for hours to see how an apple rot.

The only question I ask myself when reading this is: how is this news? Farts and pee are utterly boring, iPhones are utterly boring and Apple's censorship is utterly boring. So why bloody bother to post about it?

Rumour has it Apples launching the Ipoo'd due the popularity of such apps as mentioned above. The Ipoo'd however is a non functioning toilet like device you have installed in your home. If the urge ever takes you to buy and Apple product, you simply put your money in the specially addressed cannister, like the money tubes you see floating about in supermarkets. Pop the thing down the Ipoo'd and flush it directly to Steve Jobs. Saves all the hassle of heading to the Apple store and ending up with a houseful of cr*p.

Wow, another fiasco and more lies. Where does it stop? Not condemning the guy... I just think Apple is taking a defensive route every time they get negative press and giving the "best" answer instead of the correct one. This serves only a couple purposes. Apple fans will defend... Apple haters will condemn... and overall people will stay away. No matter what brand loyalty your product has you will always have "edge" users that will defect over negative press.. and of course events like these don't win any new customers.

Now crapple's app approval/rejections make more sense. I mean what can you expect when the guy running the show has the mentality of a 3-year-old.

Who cares? An apple employee created a few crap apps, no big deal. Don't download them. He violated apple policy and that is a matter for apple to take care of, it matters not to the rest of us. Tell me when apple employees are breaking the law, until then get some better news.
