well that is what the article says, yes - fat people, and apparently some hipster women who purport to speak for all women claiming that listing calorie burn specifically targets girls.

it closes with a vapid tweet from ars technica's casey johnston (no doubt made from the back of portland starbucks on her macbook): "any woman could have told you this is a supremely bad thing a) to do b) to not be able to turn off". i cannot stand when companies accede to the mewling of twitter's meager hipster population. those people aren't normal. for god's sake, just ignore them.

i think it was a good idea, just too in your face as-is, and needs an off switch. and of course based on the screenshots it looks like it was grossly over-estimating the total calorie burn which has it's own host of problems.

I think they pulled it because land whales got triggered. Pretty funny they used cupcakes.
