the screen is to small to watch porn. i use my ps3 or my laptop for that.

how can anyone really enjoy porn on such a small screen?
Sometimes, its a little obvious if you bring the laptop into the bathroom with you...

:icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

Note to self: Don't EVER borrow Beardface's phone... :icon_ banana:
 
So is it just me or is ironic to watch porn on your iTouch?...lol
Just you playing extremely fast and loose with the definition of irony.

Generally irony involves some sort of discrepancy. If it was the iDon'tTouch (another leap since the actual product isn't named iTouch to begin with) it might be ironic but that's still pushing it IMO.

^ Made me laugh out loud.

lol what an idiot, apparently he's trying to hide the fact that android is open source goodness and isn't policed. God forbid people actually have a choice when it comes to their phone.

I totally agree that he is trying to hide the fact that android is open source. Its a laughable argument and possibly a pretty good way to associate the phone with something people may be opposed to and therefore lead to these people always having a negative response to seeing the phone and thus pushing away potential buyers. However, judging from some of the responses in this thread, it may actually do the opposite :laugh: .

Anyways, this is just business. Trying to fool the masses with some stupid comment. Has google had any response to this? Two goliaths, Apple and Google slugging it out, how could you not enjoy this?

I can't believe that was the purpose of Jobs statement. Everyone knows sex/porno sells, you'd have to be an idiot not to realize that. Isn't that what kept the internet alive when it crashed in the 90's?

Obviously he said it to take a shot at Android, but he couldn't seriously believe it would slow sales. If anything it would increase sales.
 
Confucious continued...


Don't get me wrong, I'd gladly take his bank account.... but the world is full of sheep.... they'll just follow along.
Maybe the new iPhone 4.0 could have a 'wool' case... to make the sheep more comfortable :)

The iphone is an appliance. The other option would be to turn it into the Wild West (ala Android) and then can you imagine trying to support rooting (jailbreaking) etc? His goal is to provide a pleasing consistent experience that the users can't break. The same strategy that Palm set out with. Palm KNEW they could not sustain growth with just 5 apps. But they made those 5 apps work.

Now, Android seems to have more intelligent users (on the whole) can you imagine if the fanboys tried to half of the stuff that goes on here? If you think the questions are ludicrous now can yu imagine what it would be like if Aunt Lucy and grandma Jane were trying to figure out an Android?

It is just like 'the old days' when I used to teach Lotus 1.5 classes to a bunch of 65 year olds who thought an adding machine was high tech. Also, he does ned to make sure that the iTunes store is family friendly. He is not making all of his money form the apps - he wants it to be a safe palce for 12 year olds to buy MP3s.

I wouldn't mind if Google cleaned up the Market too.

Incredibly intelligent points. I agree one hundred percent. What it basically comes down to with the iPhone is - its for those that probably want a device with cool features but are not exactly truly tech savvy.

Lol that's hilarious! Dude, anything with an internet connection or media display is for porn. The first thing that really impressed me using the Droid for the first time coming from a MOTO RAZR was just how efficient the little mobile browser actually was, and I first realized how often I'd be using it, while browsing porn sites. I'll agree with Jobs though, the porn apps in the market are just plain retarded. Porn is the only real reason I want Flash; that, Newgrounds, and better Youtube functionality.

Haha probably with some demographics yes, but it would definitely limit others. Think about parents, as stupid and ignorant of the actual product this may sound, not letting their kids get a certain phone because they heard its for people interested in porn. While they probably are not the largest and most profitable demographic when it comes cellphones, they are still a large demographic who for the most part cant just purchase whatever they want, such as adults...
 
The main problem I see with android, is people see it as another phone with a cool interface and apps, an iphone contender. I have to explain to people when their playing with my phone what android really is and what open source is and why it's better than windows mobile and iphone put together. People thought that the droid just has cool apps and like it cause it's free, but they don't know it's open source or what that even means and how it affects them as a customer of android.

Google REALLY needs to market this android on the idea of open source and not just apps, like "Droid...the freedom to do what you want with a phone" or something.
 
^agreed.

imo, people are slow when it comes to android.

you should see my friend who's been on winmo for a couple years try to figure out how just to get to the dialer on my phone. he's like, "there's so many buttons". lol

but, iphone is an ipod with a phone built in. of course the stupid people of the world can figure it out. when it comes to android, its just too much to handle and they run away crying because a phone is smarter than them. bashing android is just their defense mechanism for something they wish they could comprehend.

but steve jobs is a ****in douche. only apple jocksniffers care what he says. anyone i know couldnt tell me who he is if their life depended on it.
