Apparently Apple even has a problem with naked legs.

German photographer Sebastian Kempa in today's New York Times, speaking of Apple's censorship of the iPhone app that he created to promote his site naked-people.de, which explores clothing as both disguise and revelation.

Importantly, the piece raises questions about American hegemony online -- namely: Does Apple have the right to impose American censorship standards on German consumers?

Ack! You know who I want to see naked? My husband. Oh wait! I don't have a husband. (Do you see where I'm going with this?)

Interesting sidenote: MY PSYCHE. So good luck with that :)
