Hate gay people? There’s an app for that

Pink News, Europe’s largest gay news service, reports that Apple has approved an anti-gay iPhone app:

The app is based on the Manhattan Declaration, a manifesto released in 2009 by Christian and Catholic leaders which rails against the “erosion” of marriage.

Apple has given the app a 4+ rating, meaning that it contains “no objectionable content.”

The app asks users whether they agree with four statements on abortion and same-sex marriage and those who answer that they are pro-choice and pro-gay marriage are told that they are incorrect.

It also has links to read and sign up to the full declaration, which says that gay relationships are “immoral” and that same-sex marriages are equivalent to sanctioning incest.

Change.org has launched a petition calling on Apple to remove the app from the iTunes store. To sign the petition, go here. View more screenshots of the app at Good As You.

Video of the day: Yes, you can do drag to The Beatles

The Beatles were the big buzz over the Interwebs this week when Apple made the “big announcement” that they were adding their music catalog to iTunes. We just wanted to get in on the action a bit ourselves. Especially when a Twitter pal said this is the only Beatles cover I needed to hear. I think he may have been right.

Allow me to present to you Cher, Tina Turner and Kate Smith performing a medley of Beatles’ classics. It’s priceless and the rainbow backdrop and marching band only make it better.

Afternoon View – Fifth Avenue Apple Store

Just the entrance, actually, since the store itself is underground. I’m not an Apple customer, but I walked in just to see the store and found about 200 people snaked around around store’s aisles in a line to buy the iPhone 4. Still. Months after it came out. Craziness.

Joe. My. God.

iPad comes gay-porn-compatible

Steve Jobs

I love techno toys, but I’m also (1) cheap and (2) highly unskilled at maximizing their usefulness, so most of them languish around me. I don’t have an iPad (yet — birthday is next week, secret admirers!) but apparently Steve Jobs sent out an e-mail last week saying the revolutionary device was not porno-compatible.

Except the gay site RocketTube.com claims it is. And that RocketTube has been available for use on the iPad since Day 1. (It has something to do with the difference between Adobe Flash and HTML5 … again, see item (2) above.)

Since I don’t have the device to verify the claim, and had never heard or RocketTube until their chest-beating claim of Apple-friendliness, all I could do was check out the browsable website and can confirm that it does, well, stream free gay porn. Maybe to a device you can hold in your hand. Which begs the question: What do you do with your other free hand?siteраскрутка в поисковых системах
