    Ryan Tate sounds like a 12 year old in his emails to a world-famous CEO.

    ^^^Ha! "Pure Coca"

    Ryan Tate makes me wanna vomit.

    Jobs got him good with that "what have you done that's so great" line.

    Steve should have his house raided too. :^p

    Awful, awful "article".

    Still, Jobs' replies are pretty pathetic too. Freedom from porn? What a joke. Way to completely fail to understand what freedom means. Maybe I should move to China so I can get freedom from porn, foreign news, and government opposition! I love how he speaks like porn, information theft, and high battery drain apps are only associated with the "PC", LOL!

    Is this guy turning senile or does he just get more and more out of touch with the world with each passing day?

    i think a lot of people are too. but we should be given our own choice to decide what we want to do.

    i suppose and I see where you're coming from, but I have a feeling that the app store would fill up with a bunch of crap real fast if the rule wasn't there. just my 2 cents :p

    oh yea def! which is why apple must pre-approve every app. i totally agree with that, but the option should still be there even for a porn/adult reading section if they so choose.

    People can get that on the internet via their iPhone/iPads. If you thought pre-approving normal apps was bad and inconsistent, just wait until Apple employees try to determine what kind of porn is acceptable. That's just a door I think they are smart not to open.

    Also, chalk Ryan Tate up as another childish, unprofessional hack employed by Gawker.

    I agree.

    If Jobs supported no guns, and all the gun applications in the app store were taken down, I think there would be a lot of very puzzled and angry people. "But it's only an application about guns. What's the problem?"

    IMO "It's only porn, what's the problem?".

    Sorry, I'm realise this isn't in PRSI....

    Yeah, Ryan Tate pretty much came off like a raving idiot in that exchange.

    But then again, he works for Gawker Media, so I'm not really that surprised.

    You know, I actually kind of agree with Steve.

    The iPhone/iPad have two platforms: native and the web.

    Apple controls the native stuff. It's in the AppStore and everything there is (depending on your parental controls) relatively clean. That's it's job. It's there to distribute functional apps, not to serve up every piece of content for the platform.

    Apple doesn't control the web, and the web technologies have really been advancing. Google goes to the web when they can't get things approved in the AppStore; so should the porn industry. People accept that the web is unregulated.

    I don't want the AppStore overrun with porn. Yes, it's popular, but I don't want it to get in the way of functional apps and make it a burden to use.

    btw i couldn't agree more with this. one of the main problems with android's market right now is the lack of approval process. yes this means more apps but it also means millions of useless apps that all do the same thing half assed. porn is VERY popular. do i want to see it a million times when browsing the market? not likely. he's right to want to control something his company developed and moderates. the internet will always be the gray area where anyone missing porn can find it, but i'm glad jobs is taking that stand when it comes to the app store. btw i'm completely tired and quite possibly ranting like a lunatic.

    Why is SJ up at 2 AM and responding to emails? At least it's not a work night. Maybe he's partying and high on LSD. :)

    Freedom from porn...

    Well Apples hefty parental controls are one of the reasons I am a loyal customer for apple.

    We dont have computers in our kids rooms, so we can supervise what they are doing, or TVs. My youngest (7 almost 8) had a friend over who brought her laptop (we didnt know she had it) and they were in her room watching youtube videos. My daughter brought me the laptop and asked me why this woman was taking her clothes off! (they had clicked on a link in comments on one of the vidoes and gotten into the seedier side of the internet). Sheesh.

    Between that and TV (which is also a NO-NO in the kids rooms) its getting harder to let kids be innocent until after puberty.

    Didnt take the laptop away, but suggested they not click on links in comments and come in the family room to play on the computer so we could be around to answer questions.

    Jobs nailed it when he said everyone has a choice. No one puts a gun to your head and says you must use (or develop for) Apple's eco-system.

    It's truly a sad age we live in. People are so brainwashed that they rather have other people make decisions for them instead of thinking for themselves. If you want to go the no porn route, then don't look at porn and monitor your children. Don't let companies say what you can and cannot do with a product you purchased.

    By 'freedom' Jobs means 'restriction'. The guy is sounding more and more like a modern age fascist.


    He leads singularly.
    He believes his values and belief system are the only ones that are right.
    He wages war on opposing technology to his values, shutting them out instead of competing side by side.

    :eek:

    This is how I feel as well, and it all comes back to the Flash discussion... if Microsoft was to say that anyone on Windows wasn't allowed to use Firefox or Safari a stink would be storming and Microsoft would get so many names and horrible comments thrown at them but Apple just don't care...

    I only see the iPad as the bad move in technology, when I first saw it I thought it was April fools.
