Apple's strict policy against pornographic apps has resulted in an illustrated adaptation of James Joyce's landmark novel Ulysses being censored; the novel itself was once banned for its sexual content. "Somewhere, James Joyce must be laughing at Steve Jobs. As everyone who took a modern lit class in college knows, Ulysses was banned from publication in the United States because of a scene in which Leopold Bloom masturbates on a beach while fireworks burst nearby. History is repeating itself again, this time in Apple’s App Store. Sarah Weinman at the Daily Finance says that a Webcomic adaptation of the book, Rob Berry and Josh Levitas' Ulysses Seen, has been banned from iPads and iPhones because of cartoon nudity."
