Baby Shaker - iPhone App pulled.

I love the iPhone. I love iPhone Apps. But someone needs to smack the developers of this Baby Shaker app upside the head. Use your knoggin, guys/gals.

Apple pulled the app from their online app store after groups such as the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome condemned Apple for approving the game's sale.

The Baby Shaker App displayed a black-and-white line drawing of a baby. The description on iTunes included the line, "See how long you can endure his or her adorable cries before you just have to find a way to quiet the baby down!"

Once the iPhone owner finishes shaking the device, the on-screen baby is depicted with large red X's over its eyes.
