This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever seen. Aside from the fact that it’s extremely racist (and I’m appalled that Apple even approved it as an application), it’s further evidence of people turning to technology to fulfill their fantasies.
Also, the comments on the site are really interesting to read. One person commented: “Well, i think it’s high time we all start questioning the idea that technology is gender neutral… with most of the software industry dominated by teenage males, exactly what should we expect?”
