Mobile, Porn, and Unintended Uses

from the tiny-naked-people dept

Questions about the real demand for mobile porn abound in the West, but it keeps popping up in Asia, where some countries are taking big steps to stop it. Maybe selling the porn as an end in itself is the wrong business model, as some vendors in China are using porn video clips to entice people to buy their phones. They use the clips to demonstrate the video capabilities of the handsets, and load the phones full of them should a customer buy. If iTunes songs can be a loss leader for iPods, maybe porn can do the same for mobile phones.

    What about cellular mammograms?

    I was at a scientific conference all day, and one of the presentations was on a breast cancer study, examining the relationship of size to risk, with lots of pictures. I acted professional about it, though it was tempting not to.
