Steve Jobs with iPad on Chair

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is once again hitting the send button and lighting the internet on fire, this time telling someone who would prefer parental controls over outright bans that if he wants porn, he can go Android. (Is that what the kids are calling it these days?)

The email from Matthew Browing, who also expressed concern over the initial rejection of Mark Fiore's political satire app:

I’m all for keeping porn out of kids hands. Heck – I’m all for ensuring that I don’t have to see it unless I want to. But… that’s what parental controls are for. Put these types of apps into categories and allow them to be blocked by their parents should they want to.

The response from Steve Jobs:

Fiore’s app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake. However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy and Android phone.

Or, as the cliche goes, just launch Mobile Safari on their iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad...

This isn't the first time Jobs has linked Android to porn; he did so during the iPhone OS 4 sneak preview event's Q&A session in response to a question about why Apple doesn't allow side-loading of apps:

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.

We're shocked and appalled to find this out, of course, and if that's the case, we wonder how our good buddy Phil from Android Central manages to get any reviews done...
