iPad does porn

What will people actually do with the iPad? If it's like any other handy gadget, blokes will soon be using it to watch porn.

Perhaps worried about the fact that books are boring and Americans don't read them, Apple seems to be preparing to flog "explicit content" through its iTunes service for the iPad, the iPhone and the iPod touch.

AppleInsider spotted links to "explicit software" categories tipping up on iTunes and did the math[s]. Apple is making adult content available for its iDevices to give those that buy the iPad something to do when they get home.

The iPorn button [not it's real name!] is configurable through iTunes' parental controls, which most kids are probably more familiar with than their parents. Especially if they like Eminem.

Apple hasn't confirmed the move. But then it wouldn't. Perhaps that's what Steve jobs and Gurgler in chief Eric Schmidt were discussing over coffee.

Gizmodo reckons their body language shows Schmidt is scared of Jobs. Who can blame him?
