Nerd Porn – Protection is everything

Whether or not teens are having sexual *********** or not isn’t important. Abstinence campaigners and Condom rights’ groups can debate that issue in a separate corner stocked with cooked stats. I’d rather flesh sex out from another angle: pornography’s rising per-capita market. Porn is taking over planet earth in part, thanks to the net. Just as the video store did to the radio store, internet porn may kill adult video houses. It’s easier to access, quicker, and easier to keep on the down-low.

Porn is practically everywhere on the internet – a fact which is likely not to change despite education, worried parents, or feigned self-control.

Rife with downloadable content, naked women and fetish genre’s, it was is a piece of App Store history as much as iBoobs was in its short life. Whether Hottest Girls’ disappearance was as Allen says, because of server overload or because Apple pulled the plug, we likely will not know till it is back up again or, there is an update. If Apple’s doing, it was a silly mistake: Hottest Girls has real potential as a money-making apparatus.

Biting the Hand that Feeds You: 90 Day App Store Refund Confirmed

Disgusting Practice, Apple

Disgusting Practice, Apple

Buy, play, love and return for full refund. What a great policy, no? Well, such a practice is cyphered deep behind market-speak within Apple’s developer contract.

According to Pocketgamer, the following can be found within:

6.3 In the event that Apple receives any notice or claim from any end-user that: (i) the end-user wishes to cancel its license to any of the Licensed Applications within (90) days of the date of download of that Licensed Application by that end-user; or (ii) a Licensed Application fails to conform to Your Specifications or Your Product warranty or the requirements of any applicable law, Apple may refund to the end-user the full amount of the price paid by the end-user for that Licensed Application.

Apple will have the right to retain its commission on the sale of that Licensed Application, notwithstanding the refund of the price to the end-user. Continue reading…
