Daily Show takes on iOS game in-app purchases

In-app purchases in iOS games have been the subject of media scrutiny, since children often play them and there have been cases where kids have spent huge amounts of their parents’ money to get virtual in-game goods. Apple has put safeguards in place to help reduce these instances, but that hasn’t stopped such incidents from occurring entirely.

On Thursday night’s show, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” zeroed in on one such case, with their typical humor:

  • So now besides being the only reliable place for news, The Daily Show is now our go-to team for investigative reporting? I’m not sure if that’s awesome or profoundly sad. I am sure of one thing, though: I’m glad I don’t watch TV anymore.

  • “Are there any other mental deficiencies in children that we can profit from?” Classic.
