DisgraceTime - Adult Industry Has Eyes For iPhone 4

I have a feeling Apple’s FaceTime is going to play out just fine. How can I be sure? Because now, the adult industry is on board. Steve’s gonna be so pissed.

Like it or not, the adult industry has always been a (and arguably the) major player in deciding which entertainment technologies live, and which die. After all, it was porn that popularized the VCR. It was porn that championed VHS over Beta. It was porn that helped usher in the DVD. While unsavoury, porn is nothing if not on the cutting edge of tech – adult film producers are some of the earliest adopters. And now, they’ve got their sights set on FaceTime.

“A phone is such an intimate thing,” says Quentin Boyer, a spokesman for Pink Visual, “you usually don’t lend it out or have someone else use it.”

Pink Visual is, of course, an adult production company, and they’ve been planning FaceTime sex chat service since the iPhone 4′s release. Ads have been posted ads on Craigslist for models – even offering up free iPhone 4s to potential employees. “It has a very personal feel – your mobile phone to hers,” says Boyer of the concept.

And how.

So what about Apple? Surely they’re not gonna just let this slide. What about Big Steve’s promise of ‘freedom from porn’? “Apple can’t be seen as responsible any more than makers of routers or hardware are responsible for the content you are looking at,” says Johnathan Zittrain, co-founder of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard. Good point, John. But how ironic that with all the raunchy third party apps that Jobs has fought so hard to protect his users from, it will be his own that will prove the iPhone 4′s biggest pornography success.

That is, of course, if this catches on. Given porn’s history, though, it’s a good bet.

    Well, I’ll begin by differing in that you categorization of porn as “unsavory” is an opinion. Especially since their OS4 on lower versions of the phone is nothing short of a screwing for iPhone owners.

    However, all chiding aside, Apple can’t tell people what they can and can’t watch on their iPhones. Nobody wants a Big Brother phone, cable TV provider or media service of the sort. Leave it to parents to lock down TVs and the web.

    Apples’s been smacked about jailbreaking and coming from a 3G owner who is going Droid after discovering a need for a phone that can actually make and receive calls, their current service model will continue to suck with AT&T involved in the equation – with or without porn.

    Just a redhead’s opinion. Take it or leave it.

    I was skeptical of Facetime and saw it as nothing more than a gimmick. With that said, I can really see it being a huge success as a porn viewing device. Very interesting idea that makes me wish I was a hot chich in need of money who just happens to have an iPhone 4.
