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...

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...

After failing to win the cops over with his implausible tale,...

The proposal had faced opposition from adult-entertainment groups who feared it would ghettoize their sites, and also from religious organizations who were concerned that the domain would lead to more porn sites on the...

Heatseek: The porn browser

There's a lot that the term "porn browser" brings to mind, but Michael Arrington's review of Heatseek is any indication you can add "pretty decent app" to the list. He says Heatseek's developers have "clearly thought this through," and that "every feature is aimed at either making porn consumption easier or making it less likely that others will know what you are up to." Heatseek requires users...
