…And Death Rained from the Sky

air_force_one_manhattanWell, no, not really, but you can’t blame us for freaking out. Yesterday, in New York, the populace apparently totally freaked out when they spotted a low-flying 747 being trailed by an F-16 Fighter jet in the sky over not only the Statue of Liberty, but Ground Zero as well.

Well, as it turns out, it was something of a misguided “photo op” by the White House (mostly because they somehow “forgot” to inform the Mayor’s office that they were barnstorming Midtown just to take some really cool pics.

Fun guys, eh?

Well, just because — over here at Cuppacafe East, we’ve been drinking heavily since just before dawn, we thought that we’d present to you this story, from a slightly more — shall we say — askew viewpoint, Take it away, Jon…

Viral Stupidity, a visual chart

I’ll be honest here, Walt turned me onto this comic (XKCD). While I don’t read it every day (and probably should), he does, and never fails to link me to the “really good” ones. Here is a recent posting that caught his attention, and subsequently made me laugh out loud.

Shake that Baby now (or not!)

As you are probably aware by now, roughly grabbing and violently shaking your tiny infant is probably not going to be the best idea you have on that particular day, for (so we are told) this tends to crash their tiny brains into the insides of their little craniums. Resulting in, well their immanent demise.

However, in the virtual world of digital violence, we know that all sorts of splatter-punk destruction is acceptable, so everything from shooting brain-eating zombies, to running over jaywalkers and pedestrians in your Gran Torino, or whatever (anyone got a cuppa Joe?).

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that in recent days iPhone users were (briefly) able to download a virtual baby shaking app that allowed said users to take their frustrations out on those selfish, self-centered babies by, well, shaking them to death.

No, I’m not kidding.

(No babies were shaken in the taking of this photo.)

There may be plenty of seemingly useless iPhone apps for sale (iBeer, anyone?), but Apple’s vetting process for approving new applications from developers came under scrutiny in the case of a 99-cent app called Baby Shaker that simulated the shaking of an infant.

The game was developed by a company called Sikalosoft, and featured illustrations of a baby whose eyes would become covered in red Xs when the iPhone is shaken vigorously, and featured the tag line: “On a plane, on the bus, in a theater. Babies are everywhere you don’t want them to be! They’re always distracting you from preparing for that big presentation at work with their incessant crying. Before Baby Shaker there was nothing you could do about it. See how long you can endure his or her adorable cries before you just have to find a way to quiet the baby down!”

As you can expect, there were some bleeding heart liberals that objected to this frivolity so, Apple was forced to issue an apology. On Thursday, the company issued a statement saying that the application, “Should not have been approved for distribution.” The spokesperson then went on to say, “We sincerely apologize for this mistake.”

Not sure what is going on in the head of some of these app designers, but perhaps someone will develop an app for that.
