Unlike Android, Apple doesn't want Porn on App store

Steve Jobs has told folks that porn on the App store is just 'not a place' he wants to go with Apple. He drew reference to the porn stor for Android and expressed concern that anyone can download them even kids! His comments came at the OS4 reveal last night. What do you think, the App store is a better place without porn?

yet another reason why I will not conform to your totalitarian ways.

The only thing that has gotten better with them is their ability to advertise. Same @%$# product, just cooler.

It's funny how people feel no shame when admitting they masterbate but get angry when someone, who has a couple more moral principles, decides to not allow porn in his store.

Apple does it simply to circumvent any possible complaints and watchdog group outcry. Much in the same way McDonalds introduces a new salad or a new low-carb item or whatever to satisfy all the idiots who say fast-food corporations are responsible for making people fat. McDonalds doesn't do it on any moral ground. They don't do it because they uniquely feel that it is their responsibility to help people eat healthier. They do it just to shut up all the naysayers, avoid further controversy, and maintain high market value for their ownership stock.

Everybody masturbates Eamon. Don't put yourself up on a pedestal and think that it is somehow "shameful".

I'd Imagine it brings in a fair amount of money

Why do people try to suppress everything that makes them happy?

Its such a curious human trait

We can blow each others' brains out on tv - but a beautiful naked woman?? - hell no - sometimes i think people enjoy being miserable

blind-reaper2996d ago

It is not what Apple want It is what consumer want, if the consumer want porn the app store should have porn! POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

Yeah we need to stand.....erm.... firm?

xTruthx2996d ago

@Eamon

lol i find those disagrees funny and sad at the same time

Sunny_D2996d ago

The disagrees Eamon is getting is funny, while the comments Blind Reaper and Rambi made are even funnier! Bubbles to you 3! :D

LukaX232996d ago

Steve Jobs is fine without porn on the App Store cause he has a wife. ;-)

Eamon2996d ago (Edited 2996d ago )

haha you can thank the ones who disagreed for supporting the stereotype that gamers are "horny nerds who need to get out more."

LOL, I also find the disagrees funny.

BTW, Anorexorcist, Steve simply said he does not wish children to purchase pornographic content from the Apple Store since he knows anybody can simply fake their age. It's nothing totalitarian like FragMnTagM says. You could call parents that since they would prevent their children from being exposed to such.

You guys aren't looking at it from Apple's perspective: 99% of porn is FLASH-BASED. You know, the battery-sucking, resource-hogging application that Apple doesn't want to support? Once video hits HTML5, this won't matter anymore so everyone needs to stop griping. :]

ProjectVulcan2996d ago (Edited 2996d ago )

Some people might claim apple's marketing department is full of onanists. They clearly use other devices than apple's then.

pimpmaster2996d ago

am i the only one that agrees with this? dude keep porn out of the app store, the iphone already has a webbrowser if you wana jack off open safari and load a video, seriously people are retarded getting after apple on this. theres no porn in PSN store,XBL or netflix yet nobody complains about them.

XxZxX2996d ago (Edited 2996d ago )

iPhone vs Android is like Apple II vs IBM all over again.
Close vs Open, and the luxury vs the cheap. In the end, the cheap win and propel one of the alliance partner to become the richest man in the world. Deja Vu. iPhone walking the same path again as Apple like to strictly control how others develop their brand, Meanwhile Google like microsoft and IBM beforehand invite developers and hardware manufacturer to join in, share the wealth and create an strong alliance. Steve Jobs knows this well, that's why he hated Google so much. He even called them out as evil corporation. Android is picking up so much momentum that I guess it worried Steve so much.

Syronicus2996d ago

If that is truly the case then I suspect you don't own a 360? Or any game console for that matter? Companies put what they want you to have on their consoles and keep options out of their hardware and I see no such complaints. Well, aside from the 360 not having a browser, that argument rages on daily. But if you are not into companies flexing their totalitarian muscles then you sir are a sad man.

DelbertGrady2996d ago (Edited 2996d ago )

Apple users are too busy tweeting, facebooking and geotagging to have time for sex anyways. *[email protected]*

peeps2996d ago

"Apple users are too busy tweeting, facebooking and geotagging"

facebook, twitter etc etc are all available on android too...

thewhoopimen2995d ago (Edited 2995d ago )

Yes. I want to fap on the run with a 3.5-4.3 screen in the public toilet or starbucks. Seriously, where is it that porn would benefit a phone experience? You want to sneak one in at your buddy'place and risk f**king up your phone and a cleanup? hahaha. Oh wait i'm a prepubescent kid who wants to trade porn cards via iPhone lolz /s

SilverSlug2996d ago

Apple wants to tell you what is right or wrong.

Letros2996d ago

That's the price one pays when buying something that isn't open source.

Fishy Fingers2996d ago

Who the f*** buys porn anyway? And that's it, one paragraph?

legendkilla2996d ago

no doubt!! who does buy porn?? lol

CountDracula2996d ago

I wouldn't mind seeing a 1 dollar porn app with updates to the latest craze in jerking off.

That's not to say I would buy it though! lol

SixZeroFour2996d ago

who buys or would buy porn on the ipod anyways, when you can just use safari and get it free...just talking common sense
