Nine Inch Nail App Rejected From Apple App Store; Trent Reznor Not Happy


Apple's App Store has been seeing its share of controversy with the release of the Baby Shaker app that was later pulled from the store. This time it has to do with an app that was designed for use by Nine Inch Nail fans.

The app was designed to allow users to access the forums in a simple manner, use the GPS to see other fans in the area and upload their NIN pics. But according to Apple the app contains "objectionable content" from The Downward Spiral, a 1994 album.

Trent goes on to post on the NIN forums about how by their logic, if this app is rejected then they must also remove the Mail program and Safari from the iPhone since those apps also have means of delivering "objectionable content."

...I heard he lives in an abandoned slaughterhouse and tortures himself to sleep every night whilst cursing the myth of happiness and the lie that is the suburbs.
Oh wait...

LOL. I think Mr. Reznor is much better suited for utilizing his talent with NIN.

@Article: He has a valid point. They offer a service that caters to many different tastes and should not censor some and not others. That being said, they are a private company and can offer what they choose to. If people don't like what they offer, they can patronize another service.

TrentReznor To Wed
Nine Inch Nails front-man Trent Reznor is to marry his rocker girlfriend Mariqueen Maandig.

The couple announced its news on the Web site for Maandig's band, West Indian Girl, over the weekend.

The post reads: "In case (you) haven't heard the news, Mariqueen got engaged.
"Everyone in the West Indian Girl camp is super excited and happy for her. Q's an awesome person, friend and bandmate, and she couldn't be marrying a cooler guy."

I guess Trent is happy after all, who knew!

In an off note, does Trent look a lot like Bruce Springsteen in this pic with his fiance?

If you want to run around looking like your a somebody but in reality you're a nobody, there's an app for that.

If you want to sit around with your iphone 24x7 while looking like a deutch bag, theres an app for that too.

Introducing the iPhone.

It's clearly not up to the hipster standard of Apple.

It's okay ... just follow in Bono's steps and support the Blackberry.

Turns out that he didn't like his options on the iPhone either.

Blackberry Storm > iPhone
