XXX top-level domain finally approved, 300,000 domains already reserved

After 7 years of rigorous back-and-forth mass debating over the creation of the .XXX top-level domain (TLD), ICANN has approved its introduction. You can reserve domains through its sponsor, ICM Registry, and .XXX domains will cost at least $60 to register once they become available in the next couple of months. Don't get too excited about securing a money shot domain, though: at the time of...

Entire uncensored Playboy library, old and new, coming to iPad

Porn lord Hugh Hefner has just announced, via Twitter, that the recently-digitized entire Playboy catalog will be coming to the iPad. Interestingly, though, he also says that new Playboy content will be coming to the iPad, which suggests it will utilize iOS's upcoming subscription support. If all that wasn't cool enough, and further confusing Apple's stance on adult content, Hugh also confirme...

Porn in the United Kingdom to become opt-in

Not one to let the hyperconservative Australian government walk away with the censorship crown, the UK government plans to make the surfing of Internet porn opt-in. Next month, Communications Minister Ed Vaizey will meet with major UK ISPs to discuss a blanket block of porn. Rather than porn being available to all, UK surfers will have to contact their ISP to be allowed on a 'porn surfing whitelis...

Firefox Friday, a weekly round-up: Beta 4, Beta 5, Panorama, breaking add-ons and our Private Browsing habits analyzed

This week has produced some fantastic Firefox news. That's a good thing, but because we covered it all on Download Squad in a timely fashion, it leaves me with a bit of a problem: there's no new news to share with you. I've been left with producing a round-up for this week's Firefox column. I've never done a round-up before, but I'm sure it'll be good. I think I'm meant to take each nibble of n...

Finally, a reputable study from Mozilla highlights our Firefox porn-surfing habits

A recent Mozilla Test Pilot study has shone light on an uncomfortable truth: people are using their lunch breaks to masturbate. Entitled "Understanding Private Browsing," the findings are remarkably clear; there are four very well-defined peaks in our Private Browsing habits, and most of our Private Browsing "sessions" are around 10 minutes long. Those four peaks are lunch break, after work/sc...

FoxySpider is a Web crawler for image and video enthusiasts

I still remember the day fondly. I was 16 and I had just got my first broadband connection. 512 kilobits of pure DOWNLOAD! Ten times the bandwidth of my dial-up modem! Unlimited traffic! To this day I'm still amazed at how quickly I filled my 20GB hard drive with porn. But that's beyond the point -- back then, you had to either painstakingly Right Click > Save As on every image and video, or re...

Autonito opens websites you specify in Google Chrome's Incognito mode -- automatically!

Having a private browsing mode built in to your browser -- like Incognito in Google Chrome -- can be incredibly handy. I used it as a way to log in to multiple Gmail accounts prior to Google enabling that feature natively. It's useful for hiding local traces of your browsing activities, of course. Once in a while, however, you (like me) may find yourself accidentally typing one of your Incognit...

iPhone 4's FaceTime chat feature powers new sex chat businesses

When Steve Jobs video-called Jony Ive to debut the iPhone 4's new FaceTime video chat, a lot of people were impressed, but I doubt too many found it sexy. Well, it turns out that FaceTime might be sexier than anyone expected, with the first FaceTime-powered sex chat business already popping up online. It makes sense, considering how easy FaceTime is to use. The overhead for a sex chat operation...

Porn sites will finally get .XXX domain, says ICANN

ICANN, the organization that controls top-level domain names, is reportedly ready to approve the controversial .XXX domain, intended for use by porn sites. It's an interesting decision that comes after years of debate. Both porn businesses and anti-porn crusaders have opposed .XXX. On the porn end of things, there are worries that it will segregate adult sites and ruin their SEO. On the anti-po...

OpenDNS FamilyShield makes it easier to block porn from your kids' computers

OpenDNS is a great service for a number of reasons, and today there's one more. If you're a concerned parent, they're now making it super-easy to block porn from all the computers in your home. The new offering is called FamilyShield, and it's just as easy to get working as the original OpenDNS service. Full instructions are provided on the official site, and they'll walk you through setting u...

Firefox Friday Five: on security, the World Cup and WebM

Another week has slid past, and again both 3.6.4 and 3.5.10 have failed to emerge! I can only assume that Mozilla is feverishly working away on a critical bug or feature -- and really, unless they get 3.6.4 out of the door this week, I don't think we'll see Firefox 4.0 Beta 1 this month. Here's hoping! In unrelated news, Thunderbird 3.1RC2 came out this week. You know, I've never met anyone tha...

ImageSpark is an open, public, more porn-y version of ffffound

So, a while ago I wrote a post about ffffound.com, and commenter joshuasbones replied with a couple of other image bookmarking services that are not invite-only. I looked into them, and one was, indeed, quite chic. That service is Imagespark. Its interface is far slicker than Ffffound's; they have something called "mood boards," which are collections of images created (or rather curated) by membe...

Steve Jobs to porn viewers: "Buy an Android phone."

Steve Jobs has been answering his email again, this time responding to questions about Mark Fiore, the Pulitzer-Winning editorial cartoonist who had his app rejected back in December (but recently approved). A customer wrote in with some concerns about Apple's iron grip on the content iPhone owners are allowed to receive in app form, saying he had an issue with "the blocking of Mark Fiore's comic...

.xxx TLD delayed once more

ICANN has, once again, delayed the decision to create a .xxx top-level domain for porn. The proposal for this TLD came up in 2000 for the first time, and since then, it has been rejected and bogged down in red tape three times. As of right now, it hasn't been rejected outright, but it has been delayed for around 70 days. To be honest, I don't get it. Having a .xxx TLD would make life easier fo...

Apple starts tossing sexy iPhone apps out of the App Store

It looks like Apple may have a new policy when it comes to sexy, borderline-pornographic iPhone apps in its store. Apps from the laddish, softcore likes of Maxim have been thrown out, along with scantily-clad ladies served up by lesser-known companies. One developer, On the Go Girls, has reportedly had SEVENTEEN of its apps removed from the store. Just when aficionados of nudity were getting ex...
