Apple has removed an app that keeps track of WikiLeaks:

Dec 22 (Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) joined a growing number of U.S. corporations that have cut ties with WikiLeaks, removing an application from its online store that gave users access to the controversial website's content and Twitter feed because it violated guidelines.

In past weeks, a host of companies from Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) to Bank of America (BAC.N) have withdrawn services for WikiLeaks, which has outraged U.S. authorities by releasing thousands of confidential government documents.

That's the dark side of the corporation. It's brighter side is this: Amos Latteier's iPad app "The Strange & Wonderful World of Ants."

Those familiar with Portland's art world will certainly recall Latteier's light and lovely lectures on the business of ant societies. The app is a product of those lectures. Says Latteier: "My goal was to create something beautiful that speaks to people on multiple levels and gets them excited about ants." I only wish the app was available for Android phones. I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I'd also love an app about the great apes. Ants and apes are the best.
