If you “read me” very often then you already know that I write for b5media about video games and liquor.
I don’t know if you go to my other sites or not and since I don’t know where you go after you hang around here, I figured that I would provide a link to what I wrote today on EveryJoe.com.
The long and short of it is that a developer [the site has been pulled] created a “game” for the iPhone and iPod Touch that basically lets you shake a baby to death. I wish that I was joking, but I’m not.
Chances are good that you’ll wake up tomorrow and hear all about it on the Today Show and wherever it is that you get your news.
I felt the need to mince words on my “work” site but have no such self-imposed censors here.
This app is/was 100% fucking evil. There are no two ways around it.
With all of the people who are dealing with having dead babies right now, who the hell thinks this shit is funny? If you think this is even mildly humorous, don’t tell me. I don’t usually moderate comments but this time I will.
Don’t fucking tell me about how it’s the developer’s right to make this crap. Don’t tell me how it’s all in fun. Because, in the end if it were in real life, you’d have a DEAD BABY. DEAD, motherfuckers. End of story. No restart. No redo. DEAD.
I saw a tweet earlier calling for outcry about the LACK of outcry over Apple pulling the app and how that will make developers go open source. Great! Go open source if the crap you’re putting out is this kind of crap!
I know. Your eyes are crossing because I’m talking about open source and all this crap but bear with me.
Apple doesn’t need this type of publicity. Its publicity machine does a damn fine job promoting itself and this kind of crap is only going to hurt it.
Honestly though, who the fuck cares about Apple other than Apple and people who write about technology [like myself]? All you care about is that some dipshit made a crap game where the goal is to kill a kid.
You sick, sick people.
I know I’ve made my point but I’ve had so much pent up anger over this bullshit that I had to let it out and this is where it gets “let out”.
Like I said earlier, the developer’s site is down and the app is no longer available for US download.
Hold your babies tight tonight, folks. Know that there are people out there who find this entertaining and hope that they NEVER have kids.
