Three Points - What's Up With All the Porn?

1) The skirmishes between Apple and Gawker continues. This time with an email argument between Gawker writer Ryan Tate and Steve Jobs himself. The subject? How the iPad provides "freedom from porn." Honestly, the most pornographic about them is the sexual fetishism of the iPad commercials. Oh wait...

2) Over in the California Republican Primary Steve Poizner releases an ad that suggest his primary opponent Meg Whitman was a porn hustler when she ran Ebay. There's porn on the internet! Shocker! Oh yeah and then if tying her to porn wasn't good enough he throws in the words "Goldman Sachs" at the end - cause when I think of derivate trading, I think of porn. Is there an emoticon for "dripping with sarcasm?"

3) Something actually interesting! Andrew Sullivan explores how "Porn has Become Defacto Sex Ed" by looking at Cindy Gallop's TED talk and her newly launched website Make Love Not Porn. If you're interested try to ge your hands on a copy of Larry Clark's segment of Destricted. Trailer here.
