iPhone 3.0 Parental Controls Allow First Adult App onto iPhone (NSFW-N)

[iPhone coverage added to make image as viewer-safe as possible - Ed]

Well, at least it took longer than push notification or turn-by-turn navigation, right?

iPhone iPr0n: Battle Begins For Control of the Mobile Adult Web

Newsflash: There's porn on the internet. The iPhone brings you just the internet. Now, with tortoise-like speed, the rocket scientists over at Time seem to have put 1 and 1 together and come up with ZOMGiPR0nZ!!11 Mobile erotica. The pornet in your pocket. Seems people are even -- gasp! -- Googletubing for it!

Apple pre-announces new iPhone firmware. Apple releases new fimware beta. New firmware beta leaks to pirates (JAR!). It's a familiar story (except for the Apple pre-announcing twist -- that almost never happens), and this time brings us details on the upcoming "Parental Controls" feature. (Apple Insider via iPhoneDevTeam)

A General Preference pane, iPhone's Parental Controls can be enabled or disabled, with individual options for allowing/disallowing "explicit" iPod content, and/or use of Safari, YouTube, iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, and App Store.
