Apple Should Call New iPhone The pPhone For Porn

Is Apple going to be known as the largest porn distributor in the Western Hemisphere? It seems that some of the major porn sites are excited about the new iPhone because of the increased speed it will pose, which will make those who view porn delighted. Apples newest phone is being referred to as the “iPhone Porn”.

According to the Times article:

Leading porn purveyors see the iPhone as a dream come true. Its relatively ample screen size, speedy Web access and ease of use are just part of it. The device’s miniaturized version of Apple’s Safari software simplifies mobile access and streamlines the process of tailoring dirty sites for optimal viewing on the go. “It’s by far the porn-friendliest phone,” says Devan Cypher, representative for San Francisco–based Sin City Entertainment. As evidence of the gadget’s rocketing popularity in California’s porn capital, the San Fernando Valley, numerous iPhone-specific porn sites have been launched in recent months. “There are a few hundred iPhone porn sites now in use,” says Farley Cahen, vice president of business development for AVN Media Network, the adult industry’s trade body. Many others are currently in the works targeting the iPhone 2.0, which goes on sale July 11.

But Apple says no, no to porn:

Apple spokeswoman Jennifer Bowcock says the company doesn’t condone iPhone porn distribution and will ban adult content from official applications, just as it has restricted adult content in the podcast section of the Apple store.

After reading several articles on this subject and listening to Apple’s response, it would appear that the iPhone is just getting a bad rap. It is not the iPhone that causes the porn, it is the perverted users.

But what do you think? Is Apple getting a bad rap or are they not doing enough?
