El Reg iPhone app rated a flaccid 12+

Bootnotes bureau protests 'Mild Sexual Content' slur

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

  • Infrequent/Mild Profanity or Crude Humour

We should point out that this classification was chosen by the powers that be down at Reg Towers, in order to avoid a knock on the door by the Apple content police.
