The Sun seen on the iPad For the debut God Pad edition, we find the lovely Chloe offering her up-front analysis of the government's growth figures. Handily, …

    As long as they pay Apple enough.

    Personally, I think Jobs is afraid of Murdoch.

    Anyone else tried this, say f'rinstance El Reg, then they'd be banned for life from the App Store.

      El Reg

      Is already banned for life the app store for refusing to genuflect in the presence of the re-livered one.

    If you shake the iPad...

    Do the jiggle?

    Pretty sure an app was removed for that...

    If they don't - Damn :(

    Wait, what?

    It wasn't an oversight allowing the ability to say how old you are, thereby restricting certain products or services to more age appropriate levels? Maybe it was a bug, guess they'll have to remove it.

    Why an age restiction?

    The Sun says its a *Family* newspaper, I thought. I'm sure Mums everywhere love it when their 10 year old open the Sun & says "Look at the tits on that!" (Note: in Sun world all women are "it" or "that" never "her" or "she")

    Buy? Buy?

    If it's only Page 3 you're interested in, it's a matter of wandering into said newsagent's, flipping the front page open, getting your full boobgoggle done and then going about your business of buying some proper porn from the top shelf. Or a copy of Loaded.

    thanks reg staff

    for the diligent research and thorough exposure you've given to this issue. What's the chance of getting Chloe in to do commentard moderation?

    Double entendre out of anything

    "high debt levels lead to the 'crowding out' phenomenon where borrowing crushes private sector investments and shrinks the economy. Luckily I know the importance of growth in key areas"

    Gawd bless Chloe/The Sun's ability to turn any news story into a double entendre.

    I'd like to double her entendre...

    I thought it was just applciations...

    I thought they banned applications from the iPad, not content; because one can surf to web sites with it, and surely they don't check every image on every web site on the whole Internet.

    Of course, standards are different in North America than in Britain; while in Canada we do have tabloid newspapers that include a picture of a pretty girl (they used to have her on page 3, but now they moved the picture to the sports section in the name of gender equality) she keeps that part of her kit on over here.

    Jane and Modesty Blaise would be much too shocking for our comics pages as well.

      Not just apps.

      There was some German(I think) paper that got censored by Apple some time ago. Apparently, it had bikini clad young women that might cause a young lad' s thoughts to turn to less pure matters instead of saving up for the latest iAccessory.

      I'm sure there will be a perfectly logical RDS surge along any minute to explain it to all us haters though. Remember, with iProducts, you are free from pornography.

      Although if some poor kid lies about their age, they may read a Sun article.

    This is the Sun's weather app... you can clearly see, that pic was taken on a chilly day.

      > that pic was taken on a chilly day

      That, or the end result of the pinch-to-zoom.

    Age-restricted material?

    I'm a bit confused by that... In what way is The Sun "age-restricted material" and do you have to be above or below a certain age to "read" it?

    Anyway, in all seriousness... How can something that's totally (and rightly) legal for any kid to buy at the newsagent be limited to over 17s (and why 17, not the usual 16 or 18) on the iPad?

    Hey not bad!!

    Not bad at all.

    And kudos to El Reg for carrying the pic in all its Bulgarian glory while PaidContent:UK (the second link in your article) had to whack a blanket-sized black square right over the lass's frontage.

    That is all...

    This story is useless without pi.... Oh. Ooer.

    Keep up the good work.

    No big deal's not like anyone would buy this app to fap.

    Magazine on the continent [of Europe] have female nipples on the front cover; no-one bats an eyelid.

    I would imagine that Rupert's rag is an 'established' brand, like Playboy, so it gets through.
