Apparently Some People Really Do Read it for the Articles

Apple’s strict no-nipple policy in relation to apps sold through the iTunes store is probably a smart decision. If not for that, my guess is that wandering through the app store would feel something like wandering the Vegas Strip. Everywhere you turn, some guy is pushing a little sheet urging you to partake in Becky’s Big Boobieporium.

I have nothing against porn in a general sense, but I really hate it when porn gets all pushy.

Which is why I’m not particularly uptight about the G-rated version of Playboy for the iPad, but, then, I also don’t get the point. Do people really read it for the articles? Are those articles really that good? Or do they need a giant pair of fake, airbrushed bosoms to keep them afloat? I honestly wouldn’t know since I never read it for the articles. I was always in it for the photography.

For cranky folk who will decry Apple’s censorship, I say: if you need porn on your iDevice, then use the browser. Even better, you could buy an Android-based device--Google really does have the porn advantage.

Read the story.

Playboy has articles?

Most of them start with, “Turnoffs include...”

Ah, c’mon. Vonnegut wrote for Playboy. I think Hunter S. Thompson did too. Steinbeck, Kerouac, Hemmingway ... I think they ran some SciFi shorts for a while. I honestly can’t remember the last time I read one. Probably either the Elle McPherson or Katarina Witt issue. Quit snickering. Yes, I did read the articles.

Jed, you’re right but you aren’t serving the greater funny.

Anyway, I couldn’t tell you the last time i had a Playboy in my possession. Has to be at least fifteen years.

I seem to remember reading that a judge has ruled it’s okay to “jailbreak” an Apple device to run Apple-disapproved software.

And I also seem to remember that when Bill Gates was alleged to have tried to control what people could run on a Windows PC, the Justice Department tried to break up his company.

Damn spam.

Anyway, it is okay to jailbreak as long as you understand that it voids your warranty. When I get around to it, I’ll probably jailbreak my first gen phone just for giggles.

I still think the JD was wrong about its decision re: MS. If memory serves, MS really did do some nasty things in punishing manufacturers who wanted sell systems with operating systems other than Windows, but the whole bundling Internet Explorer controversy never seemed right to me. But I could be misremembering some of that.
