Steve Jobs Wants You To Buy An Android If You Want Porn
By on April 20th, 2010

AndroidWith the battle between iPhone and Android gaining serious momentum, the two parties are not leaving any chance to drag each other out. In a recent response to a customer inquiry about Apple’s policies, Steve Jobs said that users who want porn on their phones should get an Android device.

When Matthew Browning, an Apple customer, emailed Steve Jobs about unjustified removal of Mark Fiore’s application and ranted out about Apple’s recent policies regarding seemingly inappropriate apps, here is what Steve Jobs had to say:

Fiore’s app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake.  However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off  the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy and Android phone.

You know, there’s a porn store for Android. You can download nothing but porn. You can download porn, your kids can download porn. That’s a place we don’t want to go so we’re not going to go there.

To me, that is a little bit more than what we call bashing your competition. It is almost as if Jobs think of Android as a promoter of pornography and iPhone as a saint. Can somebody ask him how his views about adult apps changed so suddenly and why he allowed them in his app store for a long while before blocking them without any notice? One thing is clear though, the Android and iPhone war is much more serious than we think it is.

    Sure I want to watch porn. Morality coming from a erstwhile hippie like Jobs looks a bit hippocritical. Jobs not all of us can have romp-a-marathon around the world like you Mr Jobs ……….we like watching porn since it is on the safe side (no stds). You illegitimate child whom you later adopted is a testament to your lies.

    I mean really? Is it what all Jobs doesn't like is lame and supplies porn? I wouldn't be surprised if Jobs calls Google, a porn serving company since it indexes porn sites on it's index. This man is getting mad. I don't know if it's the old age, the competition fear, or just becoming another Julious Ceaser, but this is madness. Openly defaming such platform which is havin so much of potential? Grow up, man

    The frustration of Steve Jobs is a proof that iPhone is loosing grounds infront of Android. Although ANDROID OS followed iPhone OS but now for iPhone OS 4.0 the things are on opposite direction. Now iPhone started following features of Android that the follower often looses instead of winning.

    Dude, you can get porn easily through the Downloads app. Re-re can’t even do keeping porn off right.
