Double Standards??

The Daily Mail from the UK has the recent story of Apple removing thousands of applications from their "App Store" due to "racy" content.  The removed applications range from a shopping app that lets the user browse for bikinis to an entertainment app that lets the user take advantage of internal motion sensors to cause a bikinied model's body by tapping the side of the iPhone/iPod.

So where is the double standard?

While these apps ranging from the useful to the salacious have been removed, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit app remains available.  I don't own an appropriate Apple product, but I'm willing to bet that this app includes photos of models wearing body paint as well as swimsuits!

Apparently Apple only approves of bikinis on models if you have more lawyers than God and are therefore capable of fighting back against their arbitrary "rules".
