Shocking image on App Store. So much for Steve Job's rally against iPad porn.

    On the front page "featured" section of the iPad App Store is GQ magazine. One of the sample screenshots of the app is clearly a nude of Rihanna with her boob hanging out. Nice. While this doesn't offend me personally. It is kind of a big deal its right on the front page. One tap away.

    I don't find anything offensive about this. And it's not "Shocking". That's a bit over the top IMO.

    To even compare this to porn is an insult to good porn everywhere....

    Was expecting something shocking. This is not porn, IMO.

    Even if it isn't porn, I would agree with the OP that it is an inappropriate image for GQ to use in their app store listing. There are plenty of kids with access to the app store, even if they cannot make a purchase.

    Personally, I'm more concerned about the proliferation of assault weapons than I am Rihanna's boob in the App Store.

    I hate you for sensationalizing a non-issue, if you're joking fine... it's not funny.
    If you're serious you and the way you think is what's wrong about America. Every stupid little thing has to become an issue and real issues are ignored. This post is like the people who constantly post up dead or abused animal pictures on Facebook telling me that meat is wrong.

    That you consider it porn is more telling of you than S Jobbs.

    I never understood why nipples were such a big deal. We have all have nipples -- they're nothing mysterious.

    The temptation, of course, is to make the observation about Americans having a warped balance of what is appropriate. It's OK to watch someone's head exploded in a hail of bullets, but god-forbid you show a partial boob... and not even the more interesting part at that.

    But I don't know for a fact that the OP is American, so I won't ....

    Gracious!!!

    What is this country coming to!!??

    This is the most shocking thing I've ever seen.

    It's just appalling!!

    I'm shocked and appalled that any poor soul thinks this stuff is porn.

    What is the youth of this nation coming to if this is considered porn.

    So sad...

    :rolleyes: ;) :p

    Son. That ain't porn. You're doing something wrong if that is what you masturbate to.
