There's no question that Apple's App Store on iTunes is a huge hit—indeed, Apple is close to serving up the billionth App Store download, while smartphone players such as Microsoft, Google, and BlackBerry are racing to duplicate Apple's App Store success. But with control comes responsibility, as Cupertino learned this week after the embarrassing "Baby Shaker" debacle.
Just to recap: The AP is reporting that Apple approved and then quickly yanked from the App Store a 99-cent app called "Baby Shaker"—a (reportedly) odd little "game" that challenges players to "see how long you can endure" the "adorable cries" of a baby "before you just have to find a way to quiet the baby down!"
When you can't "endure" the baby's bleatings anymore, you shake your iPhone/iPod Touch until the toddler (a "black-and-white line drawing," according to the AP) goes quiet, complete with big, ominous "red X's over its eyes."
