Apple to Refund App Store Purchases Made Without Parental Consent

From the NY Times:

An agreement between federal regulators and Apple may make parents wince a little less at the sight of their children staring at an iPhone.

The Federal Trade Commission said on Wednesday that Apple had agreed to better ensure parental approval of purchases from the company’s App Store. In addition, Apple will pay at least $32.5 million in refunds to customers whose children made purchases without adequate parental consent.
