Apple: No Jesus on the Jesus Phone

Me Not So Holy

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Continuing their policy of random offence, Apple has rejected an application that places the user's face onto religious figures, while changing their mind on the Nine Inch Nails and allowing a test for manic depression.

Me So Holy puts a photograph of the user's choice into the face of a holy figure, much like a sea-front cut out - only even less risqué. But too rich for the boys in Cupertino who rejected the app on the grounds that it "contains objectionable content":

The same application using animals, from the same publisher, is selling fine so it seems it's the pictures of religious figures that has Apple upset.

Until recently, Apple was also upset with Trent Reznor, but changed its mind when the man who is the Nine Inch Nails threatened to take his Nine Inch Nails application into the world of jail-broken phones, as well as pointing out that the content to which Apple was objecting wasn't part of the app, but could be downloaded though it, setting a dangerous precedent.

If all this iPhone nonsense is getting you down then then perhaps you should get a copy of "Sad Scale 1.0," the only software for your iPhone designed to diagnose clinical depression. Not only can you run through questions created to diagnose your condition - perhaps brought on by failure to get your own application through Apple's labyrinthine certification procedures - but you can e-mail them directly to your doctor who will no-doubt be delighted to receive the details. There's nothing doctors like more than a bit of IT-managed self-diagnosis. ®
