Apple bans seal-hunt app

Apple wrong to kill seal hunt game:  N.L. designerA video game designer in St. John's says Apple unfairly rejected a game he created based on the seal hunt in eastern Canada. Matt Smyth's game, iSealClub, allows players to club cartoon seals on an ice floe.

It is designed for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch devices. But the computer company told Smyth it won't accept his game in its apps store because it contains objectionable material.
