iPhone Apps: Killing One Baby at a Time.....

Have you ever felt like shaking a baby ?
wait....what?... Really?
What the hell is wrong with you people? ????

Well, if the iPhone app store in any barometer apparently you are not alone.

you really can do anything with your iPhone. "Baby Shaker" , a 99 cent app by Sikalosoft, allowed you to shake your iPhone to disturb a sleeping baby, then make it mad,,,,and then kill it
in the week it was up for sale it was in the top 20 apps sold
(and jeff wonders why i hate the pod people so much)

While Apple did pull the app on Wednesday, following several complaints and a series of negative articles, there is no clear explanation on how the app got through. Apple does have a history of blocking controversial apps in the past.

For example an app that tracked your girlfriends' (yes plural) special time of the month was taken out of the store because it was in poor taste. Maybe the baby shaking app was made as an angry response to the blocking of the menstrual app? We'll probably never know.
