Porn actually backed HD-DVD first before they realized it was a losing cause. In fact Digital Playground, the company mentioned in this post, came out in favor of HD-DVD vs. blu-ray originally:

FYI; The global porn industry is the worlds largest single user of DVD's and sex on the web are Googles most searched queries. Also the porn industry backed VHS video over Betamax, Blur Ray DVD over HD and now HTML5 over Flash. Globally the porn industry makes and spends vast amounts of money, and where they choose to spend it can make-or-break a product and change the way we all view media. …Nor will any company ever admit to its shareholders or to those bible bashing americans that their product's success or failure had anything to do with porn.

...on my porn surfing; did not know pornography and flash had such an intimate relationship that Adobe's survival is depending on that particular industry. I should do some first hand research while my wife is away ;) 

Also, reverand Jobs must have a huge stash on his iMac. Usually, preachers against homosexuallity and drugs are preaching their hatered to hide their gay acid porn addiction. Had Jobs never tossed dirt on Adobe and Android regarding pornography, I would never had thought he would falsly claim the high ground.

While doing your research, will your second hand know what your first hand is doing?

The death of HD-DVD came more from Disney choosing Blu-ray than the Porn industry.

Porn, like life, finds a way. It will evolve until it gets on your Iphone and Ipad, Mr. Jobs. "Jurassic Park" warned you of this 20 yers ago.

It was WalMart. Once they ditched HD-DVD from their shelves, EVERYONE formally announced they were bailing on HD-DVD within the next ten days, not just studios.

Compared to WalMart, the porn industry has zero influence on market.

I think the HD media war was settled by studio backings, not porn.

In relation to this article, in that Steve Jobs doesn't want porn on the iPhone, there is one thing I cannot possibly fathom. According to Steve Jobs, the Apple platform is a revolution in of itself. It is never quite understood what Steve Jobs means by "revolution", but from what we have seen in the past, it means a revolution from anything that Steve Jobs himself does not like. For example, Flash, porn, user ability to choose their own applications, an open-platform, and the list goes on. My point is that I do not understand why masses of people rally behind Steve Jobs in support of him and his vision? Having Flash as an option should be a right of the end-consumer, not of Apple itself.

All tech companies are there to provide a service to the customer. The customer, being all of us, should have the full-potential that we can possibly achieve from a platform, such as OSX, Linux, and Windows.With that said, Apple has no reason, other than what Steve Jobs says, to deny its customer-base Flash support. Flash is still a very important aspect of the World Wide Web, and will continue to be an important part for many years to come. If Apple is truly commited to a revolution, it should be one in which the customer can fully expand their wings, and take the platform to new heights.

Jobs never said you can't have porn on the iPhone, he's keeping the App Store G-Rated for all intents and purposes, thus he's limiting adult content.  For me, that's fine, I don't care if he doesn't allow adult content in the App Store.  It's not a matter of revolution, it's a matter of marketing.  He wants to sell it to youngsters, and with a G-Rated content rating it makes it easy to sell to parents for their kids to have iPhones or iPod touches.

Jobs never said ANYTHING about filtering content from ever reaching the iPhone.   Your analogies don't match; what does 'revolution' have to do with anything you just said?  He disagrees with Flash, so what?  Flash is NOT an important part of the web.  The most important game changer on the web were scripting languages.  Why?  Because they were standardized and could output HTML.  Flash maybe available on everything including the kitchen sink, but that doesn't make it a standard.  For all intents and purposes, I'm glad that both Apple and much of the industry (adult rated or not) has the backing for HTML5.  I'm personally fed up of Flash and its crappy framework.

Flash is still a very important part of the web, even if it is not the most important aspect of the web. The fact is that flash is used for video, web-gaming, site presentation, and user-input. So, yes, Flash is still an important part of the Web landscape, even if Javascript reigns, as well as other coding languages, are more widely used. It still brings in rich content to the Web. 

 Filtering content? At what point did I suggest Jobs was filtering porn from outside places? I said that he did not like porn, but that he was not actively trying to block people from getting it from outside sources, as that's pretty much impossible. Of course we all know there is no porn allowed in the Apple App. Store, as evidence by almost every porn app. being rejected from the Apple App. Store.

Finally, I have no qurall with the switch to HTML 5. It will be a lot hassle free to have a standard in place.

I read reviews all over that seem to apply some kind of exclusivity between the HTML LANGUAGE and the FLASH PLUGIN. Few people realize that FLASH, in its basic form is an EMBEDED .SWF (possibly stacked) WITHIN the HTML code.

One exists within the other. External actionscripts and sql transactions/queries can exist outside the .SWF files, but flash itself is just a plugin.
