Drone strike information – in effect – censored by Apple

Apple Inc., which has received over $9 million in Pentagon contracts in recent years, has rejected from its App Store, and therefore from all iPhones, a simple informative application.

Drones+ is an application that shows no depictions of the carnage of war and reveals no secret information. It simply adds a location to a map every time a drone strike is reported in the media and is added to a database maintained by the U.K.’s Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Apple has rejected the app as “objectionable and crude.” <http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=JV3skaPNJkvuwMzhyoqBmvgzzI8cL%2B2m>
