Google’s Futile War Against Glass Porn Has Begun

Attendees wear Google Glass while posing for a group photo during the Google I/O developer conference on May 17, 2013 in San Francisco, California. Eight members of the Congressional Bi-Partisan Privacy Caucus sent a letter to Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page seeking answers to privacy questions and concerns surrounding Google's   photo and video-equipped glasses called "Google Glass".  The panel wants to know if the high tech eyeware could infringe on the privacy of Americans. Google has been asked to respond to a series of questions by June 14.

A company called MiKandi, which released the first porn app designed for Google Glass, just got screwed. After previously saying nothing on the topic of porn, Google's developer policy was changed over the weekend to ban "Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts or sexually explicit material," which means "Tits & Glass," as the porn app was dubbed, is destined to be blocked. This is just the opening battle, however, in a war that Google is destined to lose. Such is the irrepressible strength of porn. Just as man cannot stop the wind from blowing, or the oceans from ... moving around, with waves and tides and stuff, so, too, is he helpless to prevent porn from exploiting a platform that lacks porn.
