Build a business case: developing custom apps

Sinn Fein has withdrawn the Sniper at Work t-shirt from its new online shop, following huge criticism of the "seditious" design.

Oh well, we'll just have to put in an order for the "IRA - Undefeated Army" t-shirt instead. This "tribute to the Irish freedom fighters who continue their struggle against British Imperialism" is much less controversial, no?

Incidentally, a couple of Mozilla-using Reg Readers who checked out our first Sniper at Work article
report seeing some supposedly hidden text spilling into plain view on the Sinn Fein shop. Such as:
