Apple has decided to get into the censoring business. It refuses to approve the Eucalyptus ebook reading application because you can view a Project Gutenberg book on there about sex! It’s not like Apple hasn’t approved ebook reading applications with the same power before: Stanza, Bookshelf, and Kindle. Further, there are far more naughty books that can be bought and viewed with existing Apple applications including books about butt sex and orgies.
Apple is said to be reading a device that might shock and awe the reading crowd but the reading crowd hates censorship. Just don’t do it.
