The Plump Irony: Come Bloomsday, Apple admits mistake over ‘Ulysses’ app

Washington Post – “As literary apps go, Apple knows when to admit a wrong and replay the situation — when, in hacker’s terms, to take a Mulligan. Still, the incident is plump, if not stately, with irony. More than 75 years after the high court ruled that James Joyce’s “Ulysses” was not pornographic or obscene, the corporate judges who preside over Apple’s app store deemed inappropriate some portions of the graphic novel “Ulysses ‘Seen.’ ” But now, just in time for Bloomsday celebrations today, the company has admitted its mistake.”
