Apple Allows NIN App.

Apple caused a bit of a stir this week when they rejected an app made by the band Nine Inch Nails. The application connects users to information about the band and their upcoming shows, in addition to social 'fan connecting' features and streaming music. Due to “objectionable content” in some of their songs, Apple rejected their app.

Trent Reznor spoke out against Apple's actions. The content that Apple had issues with was all contained on songs that were separate from the app (and songs that Apple had no issues with hosting on iTunes). Response from NIN fans was so great that Apple was forced to reconsider their initial decision. The NIN app was successfully accepted today, unaltered from its original form.

In the iPhone 3.0 beta released yesterday, and age-based restrictions were added into the app center, in order to ensure that children under a certain age can't access inappropriate apps. The addition of a parental control system was a way to allow Apple to start hooking up with more...mature apps. Adult content is okay with Apple, as long as they can say they're keeping it where children can't access it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
