Thanks for the read, I like this part:

iPorn, anyone? Steve Jobs reportedly took another shot at Google's Android operating system, saying that's where people looking for porn should go.
Jobs' remark came from an e-mail he apparently sent to an Apple customer who was concerned about Apple's practice of not approving some apps that it finds objectionable. Jobs told the customer that a case like the December rejection of an app by Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Mark Fiore was a "mistake," but that porn won't find a home in the Apple App Store.
"Fiore's app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake," Jobs wrote in the e-mail shared with TechCrunch. "However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy (an) Android phone."
This isn't the first time Jobs has taken aim at Android for being open to porn. At the iPhone 4.0 preview event on April 8, he said much the same thing.
