I really don't understand what the big deal is: they rejected an application for objectionable content. Plenty of companies have similar regulations. Something tells me Trent is a big enough name that he can get a hold of someone at Apple who would probably pass it through anyway. Seems like he could spend his Internet time doing that rather than writing a blog about, you know?
If you read his reasoning, it should make perfect sense why he is angry.

They didn't have a problem with approving the Baby Shaker application, but they have a problem approving this?

Fail.

Android is cool, but nobody has an Android phone. Blackberry is OK but the hardware is inconsistent and WinMo straight-up sucks balls.

This might have just made my day.

I read it, it still just doesn't make much sense to me as someone who is in a position of power and action would rather whine that use his power for something. I'd love to have the power he does.

he makes some really good points.

I don't buy CDs at walmart because I don't want any of their shitty "family store" CDs, but I never thought of the hypocrisy about the movies and video games there. that's just stupid.

I agree with Trent. I love Apple but that's really dumb on their part.

I think you overestimate how much influence Trent actually has in the corporate world.

Even if he could whisper in a few knowing ears to get his app approved, it seems more productive to publicly discuss the injustice of it (in case other bands or app developers run into the same problem), than to get a free pass from being a celebrity with privileges. Get the fans and consumers outraged so that Apple hears it and sees reason to fix its flawed approval system, instead of just getting himself a free pass for NIN and not changing anything for anyone else.

Apple has its ear to the internet at all times, and Trent has a huge internet fan base he speaks with regularly. Makes sense to get them informed and talking.

If you don't agree with Trent, I suggest you put on your your Miley Cyrus shirt and walk in front of a shooting range.
