Apple We all know Apple's App Store policies are a bit willy-nilly, inconsistent, and completely unreliable. This issue has been going on for a while now, and it doesn't see like anything has changed. The latest interesting App Store rejection is especially interesting, as it involves Apple rejecting an application related to one of its detractors: the EFF.

This article reminds me of the recent story where Apple banned a Nine Inch Nails app (which streams some of their music) because Apple objected to one of the songs - despite the fact that Apple themselves sell said song on their iTunes store.

It really does feel like they have idiots in charge of the iPhone app store.

It sounds like they're employing the same geniuses who used to enforce the AOL TOS. AKA, the type of folks who would kick users offline for using the word "breast" in a breast cancer forum.
