back to article iPhone app simulates political corruption

You now can practice the skills of a corrupt Chicago politician, thanks to a new game that appeared Thursday on Apple's iTunes App Store.

Illinois - The Open Standard of Corruption

Mod Rod was only a tiny, miniscule part of illinois.gov corruption. Our standards are very high - every politician, judge, district attorney, mayor, newspaper, federal prosecutor and mail carrier is required to be world-class corrupt, or we trade them for someone who is.

I wonder....

How about Apple Wars, a simulation?

Imagine, you have to stimulate the fanbois by releasing shiny new bling/machines with high price tags every few months then issue refunds when shoddy manufacturing releases products that crack or scratch at the drop of a hat.

You could market product that is so locked down you hold a monopoly position on how it's used or even prevent owners from replacing consumable parts without voiding the warranty!

I know, it probably wouldn't sell, for a simulation game to be playable the scenario has to be at least credible to sensible people.

Paris, she's a fantasy as well.

Re: Bill and James (FAO D@v3)

That's a trick question isn't it? Tell us your age and then ask us what it is, there's got to be a catch... That or it was just a really daft question!
