We are defending against a denial-of-service attack, and will update status again shortly.
Update: the site is back up, but we are continuing to defend against and recover from this attack.

Update (9:46a): As we recover, users will experience some longer load times and slowness. This includes timeouts to API clients. We’re working to get back to 100% as quickly as we can.

Ha! Developer Allen Leung made an App for the iphone called “Hottest Girls”..It was for sale in the App’s store for a while but once apple found out it featured topless women, they quickly snatched it from the site then released this statement.

“Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography.

The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed, and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store.”
