iPhone 4 Facetime To Become Popular With Adult Industry

Some smart guy has come up with the business idea that combines the best of technology - Apple's iPhone 4 - with one of the most lucrative ventures on the internet; sex.

An advert on craigslist mentions the fact that the woman (no man) will receive a free iPhone 4 which she may use for personal purposes and what is described as "a very competitive salary".

The service, which would be located in New York, is set to start in September 2010 or earlier and potential candidates have been requested to send their information and pictures. Interestingly, the rest of the description says that this is at a non-profit organisation and is an internship job.

Facetime is Apple's own take on mobile video conferencing and uses Wi-Fi rather than 3G which means that quality is likely to be excellent and the fact that you will be able to watch it live may add to the excitement.

Still there will be some interesting issues to deal with in the first place. How will the cost of the service be calculated, will there be an App for that and if yes, will it be approved by Apple? The company has been notoriously conservative when it comes to adult apps on the App store.
