Apple's Rejection of iPhone App Showing Political Caricatures Rankles Creator - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News - FOXNews.com
A conservative filmmaker in Hollywood thought he had developed a worthwhile iPhone app: a telephone directory listing every U.S. senator and congressman, with caricatures of the legislators drawn by an artist.
But Apple apparently didn't see the value, and the computer behemoth said a cartoon drawing of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was part of the reason why.
The filmmaker, Ray Griggs, told FoxNews.com that his small firm, RG Entertainment, received a rejection letter from Apple this week calling the caricatures "objectionable." He added that he has received several e-mails suggesting that Apple stock owned by Pelosi's husband may have played a factor in the decision.
Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill, when questioned about the application, said "this is the first Iíve heard of this." He declined to comment further.
