Apple CEO Steve Jobs says that Android is a "porn phone" OS and that his company is far more chaste.   (Source: Trek BBS)
Group says that Apple has shown itself to be the champion of chastity

Early this year Apple purged the app store of all that was lude and lascivious, claiming that it was merely bowing to the complaints of parents.  Maybe it was halfway right.  The Parents Television Council has gone public, claiming that its protest campaign helped spur Apple to action and praising the company's new moral stand.

The PTC says that Apple's decision to block photos of apps based on their parental control settings and remove some apps altogether is a good step.  The group's president, Tim Winter, says Apple is definitely rubbing him the right way.  He states, "Apple has taken a positive first step towards eliminating kids' access to sexually explicit and pornographic content on its product lineup and we applaud the company’s effort."

However, the PTC has identified a new target: Google's Android operating system.  Android is set to pass Microsoft sometime this quarter in the smartphone arena, and will soon be the third largest smartphone OS provider.  It has the second biggest app store, after only Apple's 150,000+ apps – the Android Marketplace features over 40,000 apps.  

A handful of those apps are pornographic or otherwise deviant in nature.  The PTC is vowing to do its best to let Google know that they're being very naughty and to whack the explicit content off the Android Market.

The group is upset that Android OS has no parental controls and hasn't taken steps to remove preview photos or explicit apps like Apple.  States PTC's national grassroots director Gavin McKiernan, "We plan to draw attention to other platforms, such as Android, or Verizon's Vcast service, that aren't really doing anything.  We definitely want to see progress from some of the other handheld devices."

Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, agrees with the assessment that Android is very, very naughty.  He became rather hot and bothered when discussing Android at the iPhone OS 4.0 launch event and accused his competitor of being a "porn phone".  His company and users, are much better at keeping their dark, unpure thoughts in check, he feels.

Steve forgets nothing. It's just a marketing ploy that's giving him plenty of free (mostly) positive press.
Give the account owner the option to turn app purchasing and browsing off completely and you should be fine. If the kid hears about a cool app, he can just go to his parent and ask them to buy it. That should immediately take care of any parental concerns.

Steve Jobs forgets everything is more like it.

1. Forgets real world people use of computers.
2. Forgets Apple is not innovating anymore.
3. Forgets Apple has no long term cash product to live off of.
4. Forgets it will never be popular as a PC if it does not act like one.

etc.

It blows my mind why people are so religious about Apple products. Me? I'm happy to never use a apple product other than to make a profit buying them for cheap and reselling them to suckers on ebay or craigslist. I made like $600 extra last month buying and reselling there crap to the flock of jobs.

"Parents Television Council"

This group seems to be doing everything they can to ensure parents don't need to parent.

You can't enter into a cell phone contract until you are 18. All the cell phones kids have are provided to them by parents. Why is it not the parents responsibility to monitor what the kid is viewing on the phone?

Kids these days? No, more like: Parents these days.... sheesh!

It's simple: if Jobs can convince parents that Android phones help their kids get porn, those parents won't buy their kids those phones.

Who cares if it's true or not? The parents will think they are being good parents by denying their kids "porn phones."

So your argument that parents are the issue is wrong. This group is about convincing parents that, to be good parents, they need to boycott products or otherwise pressure companies to change their products to keep kids safe from porn.

The problem isn't parents that care too little. It's parents that care too much and realize their power to control their kids is so limited, they want govt. and private company support to keep their kids from things those kids very naturally want.

It's everywhere. Local television news reported that someone from a group took a picture of a kid in a large chain store. They didn't speak to the kid or interact at all, just snapped a pic when the kid was looking at something on the shelf near where they were standing. Store employees didn't stop the man, saying that no crime was committed.

The grandmother said he's having nightmares and is traumatized. The only reasonable explanation is the parents/grandparents convincing the kid he was as good as raped. The news editors added commentary from people who weren't there about it obviously being a pedophile.

The picture'll probably end up in some board meeting about the packaging of the toy they were standing there discussing and they grabbed a non-staged photo in a public place. Could it have been more nefarious? Sure, but as far as I know, those types don't congregate like that.

I'm sure it's just workup to a lawsuit against the store, hoping they'll settle instead of laughing at her.

its perfectly acceptable to allow streaming videos and movies of head decapitations, brutal violence and murder, and even rape

but

to show a naked body is completely over the limit.

And we wonder why violence in America is so bad?? What a twisted society.
Dont get me wrong I think hardcore explicit sex (xxx) should not be easily accessible by children but I think its completely immoral to place a higher importance on this than the violence and murder.

I don't think any of that is acceptable.
What I find rediculous is parents giving their kids a device (the iPhone) that can access almost any type of content, anytime, and anywhere.
The kids login on our computer is setup with a whitelist of allowed sites, and most importantly (remember kids are smart) it's a desktop in the living room.

Apple sees Google as a threat
By stmok on 5/4/2010 12:19:44 PM , Rating: 5
The first reaction is to belittle the potential threat.

MS did it back in 2002 with their "Get the Facts". (Server comparison campaign with Windows 2000 and Linux)...It turned out MS was paying third-parties to do skewed studies in favour of their solutions. After about 5yrs+, the campaign was toned down. It failed. The guy who was responsible for it left the company...And MS changed tactic in 2008. (Began olive-branching by sending MS liaisons to open source meetings and conferences.)

Today, Apple is doing it to Google. But they are more cunning in the reasoning. Instead of making comparisons of solutions; they are using the moral high ground to say they are the better. ie: "Someone think of the children! Because Google isn't!"

Google should do nothing. Just keep coding and improve their implementation. Be unflinching.

No amount of marketing or PR campaign can replace well designed and implemented products that meet the consumer's needs. The solution speaks for itself. And thanks to the Internet; news will travel fast. (Good or Bad).

Public attacks like these only show you one thing: They reveal who they see as a threat. Appreciate that gesture and use it as motivation to do better.

...in the sense that this organization is a right-wing conservative christian group. One of the links PTC provides goes to 'faith-based' programming, a.k.a. christian-only programming, rather just faith-based in general. They sure seem to come across as lobbyists, than a group concerned about decency on the airwaves.

From Wikipedia:

"The Parents Television Council (PTC) is an American advocacy group founded by conservative activist L. Brent Bozell III in 1995."

This same group criticized indecency in The Simpsons - no wonder the show had Flanders monitor every second of tv in an episode.

I would take this group a LOT more seriously if it evolved into a politically un-biased and non-religious group.

Except you have it in reverse. The conservatives were in the dumps and really had no power in the country until they accepted the religious folks into their tent. At some point in time the groups became somewhat enmeshed and currently you have religious crazies and those that put up with said craizies in interest of power running the party... Unfortunately it isn't only morals creeping into governemnt... you have "Christian" churches preaching that good church goers will be rewarded with wealth and that taxes somehow go to the poor/unfaithful.

Both politics and religion have been destroyed in this mess, and it is truly tragic for both groups. There is a reason the founding fathers wanted religious freedom with separation.


Apple extreme?
By roostitup on 5/4/2010 10:21:48 AM , Rating: 2
It seems to me that Apple is being rather extreme when it comes to getting rid of explicit materials on the IPhone. Why does it have to completly remove access to these materials? Can't Apple just rely on parental controls to keep them away from children? It seems to me that every parent should know their way around the parental controls these days and should use them constantly, why should the company be responsable for blocking explicit content? Adults still have a right to view this material, there is no sense in removing it.

I realize not all parents know or do use the parental controls, but maybe we have to start educating users about this a little more?

I agree that the Android does at LEAST need to have a parental control option. It's silly to not have one.

While this is a sensible argument, and I agree, it is an argument that will never win over the other side. These parents say, "I'm a good parent, but I can't controll my kid's friend's parents." To some extent this is true, but I remember when I was young my parents made sure to talk with my friends parents all the time to know where I was and what I was doing. I actually had a TON of freedom as a child but I was taught to make good decisions and informed of restrictions I would have if I abused that freedom.

My bet is that most of the parents spend more time trying to change policies than they do parenting their own children.

Kids have no business having a phone. None. If they have something important to say, they should be free to say it to their friends over their parents supervised landline.

It's easy to get around whatever blocks can be implemented, but "parental controls" aren't a bad thing entirely.

I'm not in favor of giving a phone to kids until they're old enough to be responsible for them, but that's just me. But regardless of how rich (or foolish) a parent is, there's no reason in the world why a kid needs a smart phone.
