'Playboy' for iPad could signal arrival of adult content on Apple's iOS - Page 2

post #41 of 87
Just because they magazines are going to be on the iPad, doesn't mean the pictorials are included. I find it highly unlikely that Apple is reversing direction on a very rational and passionate decision to not allow adult content.

Don't forget to protect your Apple equipment, use a screen protector as a precaution!

Those pictorials are so tame. One can see the same thing in a National Geographic magazine or in your art museum in NY!

This will not happen. I think Hugh has been smokin' too many doobies. Jobs has made Apple's position on porn abundantly clear.

The trouble with this statement by Jobs is that while no normal thinking adult would disagree with the sentiment expressed, most of the world does disagree about the definition of the word "porn."

For most of the world:

- nudity is not porn
- topless women is not porn
- girls in bikinis/underpants is not porn

With tons of "mature" content only a Safari click away, this probably is not that big of a story, except for current Playboy subscribers who need their Playboy fix anytime, anywhere.

It would be naive to think that an iPad Playboy app will attract many readers solely with text-based content.

It's not the Wall Street Journal.

You would think the guys at AI could find out if it's an app first, before "reporting" on the subject.

I saw Hugh's tweet that indicated that ALL content would be available, but not information about whether it would be a full blown app, or a webapp (sorry for the pun ). I would be surprised if it was an iStore app, but I guess if it is subscription based, it might be possible. That would keep Apple from "providing porn to children" but still allow adults to use their iDevice how they want.

I read about this a couple of weeks ago. It talked about it being basically articles only and pics with no nudity.

Emphasis on the articles, so don't get your hopes up.

Made by Playboy but not the magazine you get in the stores, but using a lot of the articles you get in the printed magazine.

I think things are changing.

I know one thing. My wife banned Playboy and Penthouse in our home when our son was born.

That ban should be lifted when he turns 13. There's a lot worse things out there for him, and he'll probably find them, or be shown them by a friend, very easily around then. Just my opinion.

My thoughts exactly. I think he has been gone longer than we know, as in maybe starting the with the holidays and Apple manipulated Wall Street so as not to mess with yesterday.

I'd agree, in another age Playboy's content would have been painted on canvas with a few cherubs added in and hung in the Vatican. It's funny what is considered offensive at times.

OMG you mean they won't airbrush out the nipples? Life will end in the US as we know it.

I suspect the name replied to is a leg pull.

Sales of iPads to Muslim extremists will sky rocket now!

Good. Still think it's weird that some people find teenage boys looking at a nude girl more offensive than playing games that require you to kill people to meet vague objectives set by anonymous masters but then that's probably just me.

So now all we need is a Fleshlight with a built-in iPad mount and we are all set.

Do you use MagicJack?

The default settings will automatically charge your credit card each year for service renewal. You will not be notified or warned in anyway. You can turn auto renewal off.

I sincerely doubt Playboy will be the one to redefine "streaming" video for the IOS.

The Sun (Murdoch UK Tabloid) apparently has their standard topless Page 3 girl as a 360˚ model on the iPad so it's not a totally new concept.

Why??? when the internet has way more than any Playboy ever had to offer, did she ban the internet as well.

I can just image what is going to happen, someone is going to be viewing their playboy in the subway or plane and some parent is going to become in raged, even though their kid never saw it and complain and want laws to be past not allowing adult content to be view in a public place.

Some state have already passed laws about view adult content on laptops and in car DVD player that can be seen by other and people passing you at 60MPH.

Than apple will ban playboy form the app store.

As someone wrote below both of us, there are going to be all of the issues accessible by the iPad through a browser, and a separate app made without nudity for the App Store.

So, "uncensored" will obviously apply to the stuff sent to the iPad through a browser.

And, as others have said, nothing has changed in this area at Apple.

Playboy has just done what many other companies have done and made their web portal as iPad accessible as possible.

Yeah, I checked out the link that MacRulez posted and it appears that Hef either didn't understand what the difference is between an app and an iPad optimized site when he tweeted, or possibly he did know and just got a huge amount of free publicity. I wouldn't want to bet on which of the two it was.

absolutely. besides, there's (almost) nothing to stop anyone from using the Safari web browser to visit the tens of thousands of websites that do publish material deemed mature or pornographic by others.

I gather you haven't travelled much.

A lot of, if not most, mothers, and fathers as well, don't allow their children to bring such materials into their homes. Otherwise, there wouldn't the laws or attempts by the populace to enact such laws.

Keep in mind that it was the Court that overturned attempts by a majority of the population to ban Playboy, Hustler, etc.,

If you really think that you have the right to take any magazine anywhere you want, try taking them into a school.

And yes, she did ban access to X-rated sights in our house.

You can go to the iBook store and get the Tucker Max book. There is a chapter on his experience with a midget. It's actually pretty funny.

In fact I anything I've ever read in playboy pales in comparison to the Tucker max stories.
