Incomplete Markets

This was almost a "markets in everything" post but the product was "recalled" two days after its debut. The product was an Iphone app called "Baby Shaker"!

Really.

"According to screen shots posted on several Web sites, "Baby Shaker" displayed black-and-white line drawings of a baby. The iTunes description 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."

Is this a great country or what?

I must have this app.

wow... I wonder how many people downloaded the app and are walking around killing babies in their spare time?
Also, I wish apple would approve the app that allows you to "throw virtual shoes at President George W. Bush." How does that app not get approved and the baby shaking one does? It's ok to shake a baby to death but not to throw shoes at a political figure (I would like to get an opportunity to re-enact the shoe throwing incident).
