Apple Apologizes for Baby Shaker App

Apple has issued an apology for approving the Baby Shaker application for iPhone.

The 99 cent game created by Sikalosoft asked players to see how long they could endure a baby's cries before shaking the iPhone to silence the infant.

Apple removed the program from the App Store on Wednesday due to customer complaints.

Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said Thursday that the game was "deeply offensive" and said it should not have been approved for sale.

"We sincerely apologize for this mistake," Kerris said in a statement.

I really am amazed that in 2009 we have people freaking out over this. Whether the app was free or not we had the choice to use it. Now its taken away and apologized for because some people didnt like it? Our family fought and died for our very rights in wars so we could piss on the flag if we wanted to. I mean really go live in a box if things like this rattle your life that bad. Trust me, I bet there is a movie, cd, or video game that is more offensive in your house than this silly app.
