Can you believe that Apple didn't think that there would be any backlash when they started selling "baby shaker" for the i-phone?

I think you need to shake your computer a bit for the link to work

I thought it was funny as hell. Maybe you can snuff it out under a pillow, or drown it in a bathtub next!

Maybe they'll make one that you have to shake up and down repeatedly until you get a result... :o

Throwing it into a casual conversation, or making an occasional dead baby joke is fine, but to make an actual app for it is just poor taste.

Yeah, lets pull this.

Come on, none of you have ever been in a restaurant and had a screaming crying baby that the parents were paying no mind to? You didn't want to run over and shake the **** out of that baby, and punch the parents in the face? Its a VIDEO GAME for christ's sake. Do you get offended at curb stomping people in GTA? Do you get upset about killing people americans when you're on the axis side in CoD?

Sick, but somehow very funny too.

They just need to stick Steve Ballmer's face on the baby and I'm sure Apple will start selling it again.

Yes, I just tried searching for iWank... no luck I'm afraid, seems iPhone owners don't need an app for that :wink:

Anyone got any more ideas for bad taste iPhone games...

Hey, I thought it was morbidly funny. But then, I can be the epitome of bad taste.

The whole point of the app was to BE tasteless. If you find it tasteless, they succeeded. I find it tasteless, but it's also not meant for me. Meh. Sometimes people get too worked up over stuff. Red Xs over the eyes are a clear indicator that it was meant for people who like dead baby jokes.

random aside, I lost a sibling that way (accidental, though) when I was not quite 5 years old.

This thread reminds me I need to play some kitten cannon.

Joking aside, some of the comments on Digg were pointing out how the iPhone app for Southpark wasn't allowed to be in the app store because it was inappropriate. How is this any better than anything that Southpark was to do?
