Apple is new fave whipping boy about porn

The blogosphere is all amped up about Apple blocking or banning porn apps on their products. Ya so what? I think it is their option if they choose to have an opinion about standards.  I’m not a censorship advocate, usually just the opposite; however, unlike most corporations who seem choose profits over any position, Apple might be trying to raise the bar a notch. If consumers want porn they don’t need abstain from Apple devices,  hell no, it hasn’t stopped the industry so far. The difference today is that Apple is in the content business not just devices.  So even if Apple policy won’t stop porn, protecting their App Store from being swamped with XXX garbage is their corporate freedom.  Let the porn freak jailbreak Steve’s device, follow down their dirty entertainment road and just shut up.
