iTunes channels HAL - randomly censors song t**les

24 October 2008

iTunes UK is experiencing a weird censorship glitch right now. If you go to the iTunes store and search for an artist like "Hot Chip" you get "H*t Chip". It's not limited to the very improper letter "o" though, bizarrely Johnny of Cash fame is censored down to J****y.

An Apple spokesperson chalks it down to a database glitch but we all know they are currently sitting in a server room trying to argue with a sentient iTunes mainframe.

If you have some time on your hands fire up iTunes and check it out. We looked for some politically sensitive terms hoping they would be censored but unfortunately have found nothing yet to build a tabloid-worthy panic story.
