Well, Apple certainly has its opinons. Since it's their right to play in their playground as they like I can't say anything against it - as long as they do not violate any laws. Although I personally do not like any kind of censorship, especially if it's highly intransparent.

The section about "banning content that ridicules public persons" just sounds like it.
In contrast to Apples censorship I personally am more concerned about what Google might be doing... because we most probably wouldn't be able to notice any influence they exert on media messages, etc. With Apple there at least is a public uproar.
