Newsflash: Kids Can Watch Porn On The Video iPod

from the iNonsense dept

The arrival of the video iPod heralds a new frontier in parents’ battle against their kids watching porn, apparently, because “children quickly can download adult content onto their iPods and then take it away from the home for easy viewing elsewhere”. You mean like they’ve been able to do after they found Dad’s stash of Playboys for years? Employers are also at risk, now, because people might bring porn to work with them. None of these are new problems, they’re just on an iPod now, so it becomes a big deal. If somebody wanted to bring porn to work, they’d do it with or without an iPod. If a kid wants to watch porn, chances are they’ll find a way with or without the iPod. Once again, the technology is separate from the behavior, and in any case, the iPod is weak target: there are plenty of other ways for kids to surreptitiously view porn that existed well before they could do it on the iPod. To lay the blame at the device’s feet is a bit much.

.... and this is news because?

Since the Internet entered the home porn has always been there. Why does the extension of porn to the video Ipod seem newsworthy?

It seems like one of those “…duh” momements.

This is like saying watchout, kids could download blueprints to a pipe bomb on their Ipod. Of course they can, if it’s published material, good or bad it can be transfered to storage devices like the Ipod.

No Subject Given

Im all for blaming this on Myspace.

But like mike said, wow umm I can also put porn on a CD, take Pictures, Have pictures on my Camera, Have Pictures/Movies on my Phone and have Pictures/Movies on my PSP. No big freakin deal. Remember in our society, its much easier to fault other things then ourselves.

School shooting? Doom and the matrix
Bad Grades in School? Video Games
Porn in Class? the iPod

No need to talk about morals or values or parents, over rated right?

Common

The chances are that children would not of know that you could use your ipod for porn in till you put that piece of information on the news.

To be honest I think ipod porn is just a ploy to sale more ipods. because first off what about all these damn PDA and pocket PC that cost cheaper than a ipod and do so much more.

i mean duh not as if teenagers can’t have jobs an no bills so why not save up and buy one.

NOW THE MEDIA SAY YOU CAN PUT PORN ON IPODS so teens will PUT PORN ON IPODS.
