This post isn't about me being sleepy, although I usually am these days. I just accidentally hit the z button instead of the shift button and was too lazy to change it or think up a clever title.

I've wanted an iphone for awhile now.
But I've restrained myself.
Because, you know, I'm like a really poor college student.
But then they keep coming out with all these cool apps and I keep going over my budget to try and see where I can cut corners to afford paying my own phone bill.
And I could do it.
But common sense holds me back.
Like, how I'd rather spend that money on things like cowboy boots.
And how my laptop is enough of a time sucker.
So I try not to think about how much more convenient it would be to carry around one little gadget instead of both my phone and my ipod.

But my irrational wants aren't the purpose of this post.

Today I read that Steve Jobs (you know, that Apple guy) is against pornography.
Here's a quote (from here).

As you might expect, this has triggered a frenzy among some critics. Ryan Tate, a writer for the Gawker website, sniped at Jobs about suppressing his customers’ “freedom,” prompting Jobs to respond, “Yep, freedom from programs that steal your private data. Freedom from programs that trash your battery. Freedom from porn. Yep, freedom.”

When Tate replied that he didn’t want “freedom from porn,” Jobs answered, “You might care more about porn when you have kids.” In a correspondence with a consumer, Jobs went even further, speaking of his company’s “moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone.”

Morality in a major corporation?
I love it.

More information on how and why I feel the way I do about pornography found here.


  1. I just read that little article! How awesome! Way to go Steve Jobs. He just jumped up my cool-o-meter by a ton!
    Love you!

  2. have I mentioned that I love you?

    now I will mention that I have been wanting an ipod nano for a while now (I love my little shuffle, but still.. sometimes I want to listen to ONE PARTICULAR SONG you know??) and this quote has prolly prompted me to buy for for certain now. When I get more money.

    What would be even better would be if he could somehow manage to combat pornagraphy in macs themselves... but ah! that would be hoping for too much, I think. :(

  3. Hey, you should post a link to the Church's new website called Combating Pornography.
    Here's the link
