I was able to access Porn and adult toys through an app!

I was listening to Pandora and boom an ad for Adam and Eve pops up and theres a fiiiiine woman on it.

I'm like yeahhhh let me check this out.

All of a sudden I see all these nasssssty categories for woman's "stuff" and I'm like 'Ow Owww'

Even a DVD section came up with X rated preview pics.

I took a screen shot and posted it a few posts down.

But if you get the pandora app you'll probably come across it.

If I'm not mistaken those ads are taken from your browsing cookies I'm guessing. So you must have been looking at porn or sex toys or something for those target ads to pop up.

I don't think that's true. I never surfed any porn sites and one day a few weeks ago when I was in Safari a new tab opened up and it was a porn site. I don't remember exactly what site I was originally on but I checked all the ads and links on that page and none pointed to any porn sites. I'm still baffled by how it happened.

I don't get it... why start a thread announcing to everyone you saw porn? Is that something to be proud of??

Are you JOKING me? Why wouldn't you think I'd turn off content specific ads on oo.apple.com from my iPhone 5 safari browser?

I don't know ANYONE who hasn't done that yet.

"Got some porn and toys through an iPhone app"

The title of your thread sounds like an announcement that you've been shopping online via your iPhone.

That's OK; I preserved it in my post. Now it just sounds like you're incredibly excited to have been so lucky (the exclamation point.)

What's the matter with Pandora? Can't they pay their bills without pandering?

I like the "How can I tell if my iPhone 5 is bent?" and the "Do you covet your lightning cable?" hits.

Why would you turn off content specific ads? Personally I'd rather see ads that are relevant to what I'm interested in...

...Are you afraid that people might see something embarrassing?
