rejected the iPhone app Eucalyptus entry into the company’s App Store. The reason: the e-book reader, which can search the 20,000-plus item classic library of
Project Gutenberg, “contains inappropriate sexual content” by allowing access to works such as The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana.
Was the initial rejection another example of the capricious nature of the App Store review process, the work of an overzealous app reviewer whose decision—once spread around the Internet—got overruled? Hard to say, but Apple (eventually) did the right thing, and that’s what really matters.
