Wait, in spite of Overlord Jobs telling people that they don't want porn, they actually still want porn? I'm shocked. Don't consumers know that we don't know what we want until a company or corporation tells us what we want?
Apple might not like it, but smutty services for mobile phones and other devices are still growing strongly. The market for handheld filth is expected to be worth $2.8bn by 2015, up from $1.7bn in 2009. Video chat and subscription-based services will drive most of the growth, according to Juniper Research. Video chat …
I dont think Jobs has ever asserted that people don't wan't porn - just that he doesn't want his multi multi multi billion dollar firm involved in supplying it to them.
It's a fairly common stance among large companies making unimaginable rack-loads of cash already that a few extra million from porn isn't worth the hassle they'd get from the 'stop this filth' brigade.
@"Much of it not optimised for the mobile experience, but still more than sufficient for casual users."
What as opposed to not enough for hardcore users?! ... sounds like a recursive double entendre?!. :)
Anyway, Apple could easily target the porn market, they just have to call it the iFondle!
"Video chat and subscription-based services will drive most of the growth"
Ignoring the brilliant double entendre about "growth", does this mean we'll see video chat services offering FaceTime compatibility?? I can't imagine ol' Jobs will stand for that!
Still, the iPhone fits comfortably in one hand, leaving the other hand conveniently free. I imagine we'll get a new message from his holiness instructing us "don't hold it that way - you filthy pervert"
