iphone Buy An Android Phone If You Want Porn

Yup. The exact words from Apple CEO Steve Jobs were “Folks who want porn can buy and Android phone”, in his email reply to an Apple customer on moral responsibility. Its ridiculous enough that a phone maker is deciding for its customers what is morally right by not having those apps in their App stores. But it gets more ridiculous to tell the customers that if they want porn, they should opt for something else (in his case, an Android phone).

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has recently been shooting off emails in response to customers’ concerns. We just were sent what appears to be one such Jobs response, sent last week surrounding the whole Mark Fiore situation. And it’s a good one.

When questioned about Apple’s role as moral police in the App Store, Jobs responds that “we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone.” Better, is what he said next: “Folks who want porn can buy and [sic] Android phone.“

Last week, another Jobs email about the Fiore situation was published in which Jobs called the situation a “mistake.” He noted the same thing in this email, but the porn/Android link is the key here. Assuming this email is legit, this isn’t the first time Jobs has suggested users try Android if they want porn. Earlier this month, during a Q&A session after the iPhone 4.0 OS event, Jobs said:

You know, there’s a porn store for Android. You can download nothing but porn. You can download porn, your kids can download porn. That’s a place we don’t want to go – so we’re not going to go there.
