FTFA:

Apple should sell all products with an installed filter blocking all Internet porn. If the buyer, over the age of 18, wishes to unlock the Internet, he or she is free to contact Apple, sign a form acknowledging the ills of pornography, and receive a code to remove the filter. Sevier argues that the burden must be shifted from parents to the manufacturer to sell a locked device.

BULLSHIAT!!!

It is the parent's responsibility to keep their children safe from what ever they don't want their children to see on the internet, NOT THE MANUFACTURERS!!!  I shouldn't have to fill out a form saying that I want to look at adult content when I buy a device so I can look at said adult content.  It should be my ability to instantly look at adult content.  Especially since I do not have children and I am in my mid-30s.  My sister, on the other hand, has two children, the oldest is 12.  If she ever gets a computer, it is going to be up to her and her husband to keep their children from seeing anything adult oriented on the internet (like, or example, not letting her children have internet access in their bedrooms, but rather, insist that everything with internet access be in the living room area.

It makes absolutely zero sense to say "We must protect the children by making everything child safe, even if the buyers are of legal age and have no children."  It's like passing a law saying that all new cars sold must include child safety seats.  What about people who's kids have either moved out, out grown child safety seats or never had children?  Same thing here.  He's wanting a law that protects children, but effects those who don't have children or who's children have already moved out of the home.

It's almost like he's using the battle cry of "Think of the children" to further is goal of legislating something he doesn't believe should exist in the first place, porn, and thinks that by getting people to ask for the makers of their computers and tablets to unlock the porn filters (instead of just being able to do it from their own home with the click of a button), that people would be too embarrassed to actually ask, and the porn filters will stay in place.  Well, to that, I am going to point out that I have four 1TB hard drives connected to a wireless router that is not hooked up to the internet, and it's password protected (the password is a sentence actually, a very non-scenically sentence) and the router ID tag is "Porn Router".  And that pretty much proves that such protections are pointless since we already have porn.

Great Janitor: My sister doesn't have a computer and has resisted computers forever.  When her oldest started Kindergarten, the teacher said that she was going to get the kids onto the computers as soon as possible and teach them about computers and how to use them.  My sister protested, explaining how she wanted to keep her kids off the computers because she sees them as dangerous things to society.  The teacher answered with "Get over yourself, you're attitude is only hurting your children."

Her husband has racked up hundreds of dollars in extra cell phone fees for downloading porn onto his cell phone.  Not having a computer or being very bright, he downloads the most expensive porn images possible.  When she told me, I answered "You know, if you had a computer, he could get all his porn for free online."  She just saw that as another reason to not get a computer.  She's 100% anti-porn.  I think for all her biatching about how the internet and computers keep us separated from each other and is destroying society, I think the truth is that she doesn't want her husband to have something else to look at porn onto.  There are times when I honestly think someday she'll need bail money for kicking his ass for watching a porn movie.


Is your sister really young or really old?  I kind of get the older generation being threatened by it since it wasn't around when they were younger.  Also younger women tend to be threatened by it earlier in their relationships until they realize that it's a losing battle.  I guess there's just always the uptight/religious/conservative types too.

I'm at the point now where I just have to tell the women who have a problem with it that they need to get over it because it's going to happen regardless of whether they want it to or not.  This is going to have to be one of those if you can't beat them, join them sort of things (no pun intended) or at least let it go.  It's also one of those pick your battles situations where this one isn't really worth it.  It's like those fools who are fighting gay marriage.  You can't stop it from happening so just learn to live with it.

LindenFark: Great Janitor: it is going to be up to her and her husband to keep their children from seeing anything adult oriented on the internet

I do have children, and I'll say that approach is wrong or at least too limited. Your job as a parent is to prepare them for when they inevitable see adult oriented material. Make sure they have healthy attitudes and the tools they need.  By the time they're 12, you're past the window where you have much influence over their personalities, and you've lost theability to keep them from the Internet unless you're willing to become Amish.
