Steve Jobs says 'No Porn' for iPhone and iPad Apps Comments

" (W)e do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone...You know, there's a porn store for Android....You can download nothing but porn. You can download porn, your kids can download porn. That's a place we don't want to go - so we're not going to go there". (Steve Jobs) Continue Reading

    Kudos to Steve Jobs! It's about time someone in his position took a stand against the porn industry. For all the people who don't like his decision, here's a clue: You don't HAVE to have an iPhone. And, honestly, is your pornography addiction so overwhelming that you have to carry that crap around with you? If so, GO GET THERAPY.

    "It's all fine for Apples to ban porn, but what's next? Who will they go after next, Catholic's?"

    Um, excuse me, Mr. (Ms.?) Ziod, but porn is not a "who"; it's a thoroughly degrading "what." This means that your questioning is a thoroughly imbecilic non sequitur.

    Not only is it right and good for Mr. Jobs' products to be porn unfriendly, but porn should be illegal in the first place; its proliferation is a gross perversion (no pun intended) of the First Amendment.

    What a breath of fresh air in a morally polluted world.

    Steve Jobs' "No Porn" policy is why I will strongly encourage people to support a responsible company like Apple and buy their fantastic products.

    Thank God that the birth mother of Steve Jobs made a responsible choice for life and decided to send her baby for adoption. The world would be a technologically lesser place if Steve Jobs, an adopted child, was aborted.

    Now what market would flock to APPLE after this decision? I got my daughter an iTouch. We are not iPhone people (yet) but with this news, my daughter's next phone may be an iPHONE. I have used Nokia ever since year 2000 but I'll be considering iPhone after this news. Pornography ruins husbands' minds and their relationship with their wives. It is just like wading in the mud. Hats off to Steve Jobs for this decision to shun Pornography!!

    I'm not a Steve Jobs fan, though I do like the MacIntosh computer. I've always maintained that the Mac's worst enemy was Apple Computer Company and Apple's worst enemy was Steve Jobs.

    I applaud Jobs for taking the anti-porn stand. I hope he sticks to it. If sales on iPhone take a plunge, though, he just may cave in. Personally I don't care. I don't uws an iPhone. I use a Blackberry. If sales for iPhone drop because of his stand and he does not cave, I will have a new respect for him.
