No WiFi Search for You!

The soup Nazis over at Apple have inscrutably banned another group of applications from the iPhone/iTouch and soon to be iPad platform. WiFi finders were unceremoniously scrubbed from the app store beginning Thursday. I’m sure AT&T is involved on this one.

Hooters iPhone app developer gets nervous

Is his Hooters Calendar app about to get the boot?  App developer Phil Yerkes doesn’t think so.  But you never know. (Disclaimer: I think Hooters is absolutely tacky, but they do have great wings and clam chowder.  Honest. My wife doesn’t buy that, but it’s true.) Apple’s new crusade to clean up the App Store has a lot of folks upset, like MG, for instance.

University of Texas Frigtards try to stomp useful app

Some former students of the University of Texas created an iPhone app called iTexas. (Link opens App Store.) It’s an app that coordinates all the things a UT student would need to keep up on, regarding campus life, etc.  But no, it’s got the word “Texas” in it. Which the University OF Texas apparently thinks it owns.  Or something. More here. And a memo to Dean Wormer or whoever runs UT: says “The first people to Texas arrived during the Pleistocene about 24,000 years ago. Alonso Alvarez de Pineda mapped the Texas coast in 1519.” So if anyone should be upset, it’s him.
