back to article It's time for a close-up look at mobile porn

Apparently, someone has discovered that you can watch videos on the iPhone, and that "videos" includes "porn." Mobile porn... wow. So I asked a purveyor of photo-porn on the web what made the iPhone special for his customers. "No idea, but we think it's the zoom," he said. "You can get to see the detail, you know?" What we …

    Excuse me,

    But haven't Phorm and its phreaky me-toos and me-3s just demonstrated that Gupta's "statistically valid" business data has no commercial future? After all, how many over-paid and under-worked iPod-wielding saddos are going to present themselves for frisking knowing he wants to voyeur their pr0n consumption? It seems unlikely Mr Gupta will be speaking to Mr Kewney after this premature obit.

    I had assumed...

    ...his users found the iPhone's lack of keyboard made it easier to wipe clean.

    Doesnt this look like Phorm would almost be perfect to monitor this type of activity?

    Disappointing article

    Absolutely no NSFW links in there at all.

    I watch a lot of vids on the ipod touch, but i can't say i've ever felt the need to stick a grumble flick on in case i'm taken with the urge to crack one off while waiting for the train.

    Disappointing - come on guys, sort it out, tried that one to alleviate patching boredom and the photo's arn't available in the UK yet. Come on ElReg, you need to update your list!!

    that no one has gone for the obvious iPorn moniker. And we thought it was just because you could adjust the vibration level. Casts Jobs new "" in a whole new light...

    When's the next show? Oh, fuck that I'm off. Mine's the one covered in cocksnot stains.

    Thank goodness I'm not like that !

    I prefer my films - smutty or otherwise - on a proper widescreen telly that takes half the wall, thank you very much. And as for zooming, I'm over 40 so I have no more need of anatomy courses.

    Just how someone can spend 100 whatever a month to squint at a hand-held screen for hours is beyond me. But hey, it's their money to waste and it doesn't hurt me, so . . .

    On the other hand, all these people spending their money on airwave entertainment just might be paving the way for something actually useful - I just can't think of anything right now.

    It's the desdcrete nature of the device

    iPhone and PSP both offer this kind of capability. It's an almost stealthy way to surf p0rn.

    If you're on the move and want nekkid pictures you have a couple of options, dirty magazines (which will likely get you laughed at and talked about) or a nice mobile device with a decent sized screen and memory card. Most folks will at least assume your watching a movie or playing a game, most of the time they won't even look too carefully at whatever you're up to. If they do, you can always switch the screen to something else really quickly.

    Seriously though, these devices are changing things. As the article suggests users can download whatever naughty pictures or vids that they desire to their memory card and hey presto naughty bits on the move. With an ability to browse on the move as well either over wi-fi or one of the various cell phone based broadband systems, owners of such devices aren't even limited to what they sync from their PC at home.

    These devices are truly personal, so it's something that stays with the owner. There's less chance of discovery than say, on the family PC at home, of the PC at work.

    Actually, it's pretty obvious that mobile devices like th iPhone and PSP are ideal for this, when you think about it for a moment.

    Paris, and if you can't figure out why, then you don't get to borrow my iPhone....

    Confirms everything i ever thought about iphone users....

    ..... and i for one will certainly NOT be shaking hands with anyone who owns one (i mean, who knows what they were shaking before).

    Perhaps a tie in with sony's w910i would make it an ideal device for the 21st century. Market it as an iTUG(tm)..............

    Mines the one with parental control's please.............
