Apple thinks Skin is Porn!

Someone over at Apple is a bit nervous about women in Bikinis. As they have banned “every” iPhone app that shows any skin. The rumor on the street is that if you have a picture of a woman in a Afghani Burqas you are good to go. All pictures of men, require that they be wearing long sleeve shirts, any hint of chest hair requires that the shirt be buttoned all the way to the top, ties are optional.

Once again Apple proves that if you have a business model that they suddenly feel is impacting their idea of appropriate you are going to be out of business. Odd that the Playboy application is still online? Maybe Apple has just signed a multi-billion deal with the Porn Industry, with the porn industry magazine sales down, and with the iPad coming online it could be pre-cursor to being able to pick up Playboy on the iPad / iPhone. After all I bet those applications will sell and bring in more revenue for Apple than the Bikini applications.

Those bikini application companies are now out of business probably the folks that have puppy apps are next. Sucks to be them, but come on did anyone think it was really going to last. Apple has thrown the morality flag, any image in any application that may be considered titillating in any way will be rejected.

Did I say the Playboy application was still available!

Ohhhh I almost forgot you do remember that you can go to any website in the world with Safari.. After all the Internet is a completely sterile place. I suppose they will have to remove Safari from the iPhone as well. Ohh and might as well remove the camera from the iPhone after all someone may take a picture at a swimming pool. Jeez I wonder if they are going to start searching my Macbook for pictures as well?
