Apple No Longer Allows Apps That Track US Drone Strikes Abroad

I'm not sure I understand exactly why a company would want to make an app that tracks exactly where the United States uses its drones during military action overseas. A company was denied approval for just such an app called Drones+ recently. Apple cited objectionable content is the reason for denying approval.

The app appears to overlay any location where the totality occurred during an attack using a US drone. It's unclear whether the app is calling attention to the fatalities presumed to be of non-combatants are not.

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.
