My last post outlined an instance of media/CIA collusion. Here’s an example of what may well be industry/government collusion: Apple’s refusal to accept an app that shows where drone strikes are occurring.

Apple receives a vast number of suggested apps for its Apple Store, and rejecting any one would normally not raise many eyebrows. But what’s interesting in this case is the continually shifting reasons for the rejection.

One doesn’t need a tinfoil headpiece to be suspicious. Perhaps it’s only a matter of the Apple honchos making their own political decision. But if people act in concert, it doesn’t really matter if there’s a conscious conspiracy. The net result is exactly the same.

In any case, let’s see what happens if the developer of the app tries to flog it to Android.
