Now available for your iPhone: Porn

Published: June 25th, 2009

At last … the long-awaited opportunity to use the words “iPhone” and“porn” in the same headline, which is just plain search optimizationgold.

In any event, Macenstein reports that developer Allen Leung has created the first iPhone application featuring topless women.Hottest Girls is a $1.99 download, and its announcement, according toMacenstein, rivals “the first transmissions from the moon landing inimportance.” The patented Shark Tales Irony Meter broke down parsingthat sentence.

Or perhaps it’s the fact that Apple has been so sanctimonious aboutforbidding applications on moral grounds that’s causing the ironyoverload. Just ask Trent Reznor of the band Nine Inch Nails, who had anapp pulled by Apple on account of obscene language in The  DownwardSpiral. Reznor compares it to Wal-Mart’s call for the bowdlerization of albums in the 1990s,with which NIN refused to co-operate: “My reasoning was this: I canunderstand if you want the moral posturing of not having any “indecent”material for sale – but you could literally turn around 180 degreesfrom where the NIN record would be and purchase the film “Scarface”completely uncensored, or buy a copy of Grand Theft Auto where you canbe rewarded for beating up prostitutes. How does that make sense?”

That’s pretty much all of Reznor’s commentary that’s suitable for publication in a family magazine.

Anyway, if you want it, download it now. Apple has become notoriousfor its inconsistency and fecklessness when it comes to approving appsfor the online store, so here today, gone tomorrow. If it isn’t gonealready.
