iPhone Porn was a headline circulating the internet the other day.  In fact,an article showed up on the online version of Time. Somehow, people have the notion that the 3G iPhone will supernaturally attract porn from the air or something.

What the hysterical porn-mongerers don’t realize is that the iPhone, like any other of the billions of web enabled devices in the world, can load a web page.  Now, rumour has it that *gasp* there is porn on the internet.

I remember the same hoopla over the Sony PSP.  a Fox Affiliate in Minnesota was running a piece that said that the PSP could pull porn down “out of the air”.   The iPhone article in Time is no better. Here is a quote:

Steve Jobs’ company is keeping a civil, if embarrassed, silence on one of the potentially most lucrative and controversial uses of its handheld jewel: porn.

These type of irresponsible stories may make headlines but they don’t make sense.
