Steve Jobs: Want Porn? Buy an Android Phone

We know you guys and gals are sick to death of Apple stories -- blame the temporary uptick in Apple-y content on the recent triple play (iPad release, iPhone OS 4 anouncement, lost/stolen iPhone 4G) -- but this one was just too quotable to pass up. According to Steve Jobs, if you want to watch porn, get an Android phone . Here's how it went down.

According to TechCrunch, a customer named Matthew Browning wrote an email to Jobs because he was concerned that Apple's blocking of an app by satirical cartoonist, Mark Fiore, was indicative of Apple taking on the role of "moral police."

"It appears that more and more Apple is determining for it’s consumers what content they should be able to receive. For instance, the blocking of Mark Fiore’s comic app (due to being political satire) or blocking of what Apple considers to be porn," Brown wrote.

"I’m all for keeping porn out of kids hands. Heck – I’m all for ensuring that I don’t have to see it unless I want to. But… that’s what parental controls are for. Put these types of apps into categories and allow them to be blocked by their parents should they want to."

Jobs reportedly replied: "Fiore’s app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake. However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy and (sic) Android phone."

So there you have it, folks. Android is the platform for porn.
