iPad | Apple’s No Porn Policy

This may not be good news for those who thought they would be able to watch booty online on the go…..no ass and tits shots for you but other than that…..you still can get on the Internet and surf porn websites with your iPhone.

Magazines planning to launch iPad editions for the Apple’s glossy e-Reader device will have to censor themselves to make into Apple’s No Porn app store.

According to TechCrunch, he wrote: “I’m all for keeping porn out of kids hands. Heck–I’m all for ensuring that I don’t have to see it unless I want to. But…that’s what parental controls are for. Put these types of apps into categories and allow them to be blocked by their parents should they want to.”

To the untrained eye, ear, and moral compass, this seems like wise logic. However, the Apple CEO reportedly replied: “Fiore’s app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake. However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy and (sic) Android phone.”

It’s a peculiar moral dilemma for cell phone manufacturers, this porn thing. Google’s Android, having hoisted its flag of openness, must sail by it. Perhaps it will, at some future date, decide whether there’s a point at which the doors are excessively ajar. However, late last year, a company with the dubiously cute name of MiKandi was the first to brag about its Androidable porn store and I’ve not noticed reports of people on the streets with placards desperate for the stoning of its CEO.

It’s not hard to consider this a debate about image rather than reality. There is surely nothing to stop you, should you be so inclined, from opening up the Safari browser on your iPhone and surfing for as much porn as your little heart cares to consume.

I’m not suggesting you should, merely that you can. Isn’t the truth that Apple can’t stop porn from appearing on the iPhone, but it can attempt (the Playboy app being just one curious exception) to avoid the perception that the company is directly making money from it?
