On a side note, a lot of other “weaponry” apps such as guns and grenades have been showing up on the App Store. I’ve made yet another appeal to get Slasher back on the store, but so far haven’t heard anything back. I saw a news story recently about how the British are up-in-arms (ha ha) about all the firearm simulations in the App Store. I hope Apple does not cave in and remove those apps.

I ran across an interesting cartoon. It makes a passing reference (at least I think so) to my Slasher app. They call theirs iKnight, but I’m pretty sure they had Slasher in mind when they wrote up their parody. The funny thing about the cartoon to me is that of all the people who were most offended, the British seemed to top the list. Of course, they have a rash of knife attacks and that’s not anything to make light of. But an app on a phone cannot compare to a real knife.
