Steve Jobs as Satan. Man blames Apple for his porn addiction & failed marriage.

We live in the age of It's Always Someone Else's Fault. This time, a man is blaming Apple for facilitating his porn addiction. 

When in doubt, blame technology. A Tennessee man is suing Apple for enabling him to access pornography, alleging that the tech giant supports pornography and “explicit sexual content which has led to the proliferation of arousal addiction,” according to his 50-page complaint.

Nashville lawyer Chris Sevier argues that Apple should install a content filter in its browsers to block all internet porn, CNET reports. His “reasonable policy” would only allow users 18 years of age or older to access inappropriate content if they contact Apple and sign a form acknowledging the perils of porn. Only then would a user receive a code to access the free interwebs. (source)

Eve you wicked woman, you done put your curse on me
Why didn't you just leave that apple a' hangin' in the tree?

It's always the Apple...

Lawyer? He'd be better served hiring a therapist.

Can I sue Bill Gates for the same thing?

Can I sue the porn sites for giving me carpel tunnel?

No, buy maybe you can sue Jergens:)

Jergens? No! Astroglide!

And the makers of KY!

That is what religion has always done, it is those bloody women's fault - when all Eve wanted to do, was to boost her bloke's stamina, with a sugar hit, for the next session.

So, it is interesting for a bloke to blame something else, for a change :)

I luv his next line - He claims that his addiction started when he “accidentally” replaced the “a-c-e” in Facebook with a “u-c-k”.

Whoops, didn't mean to do that.

I wonder if it was this picture, that was the turn on - his wife left him, not very understanding was she?

Yeah, because, you know, the "u" and the "a" are so close to each other on the keyboard.

People often confuse the idea of some party being instrumental to your problem with said party being responsible/ liable for your problem. Is it the lure of a cash settlement which draws out frivolous lawsuits, or are the suitors just a little bit off kilter? Some from column A; some from column B?

Not even my actual parents tried to control me that much before I was eighteen, and certainly not after. Maybe that was a mistake. Shit, am I on the cusp of a downward spiral into destruction, despair, and chafing? Do you think I should get a signed note from my mama getting permission to look at porn?

I think this item fully guarantees their complete loss in a case that seemed weak to begin with. Sure, Apple could regulate Safari, but they don't hold sway over third party browsers unless they make it a feature of the OS itself. I've never tried to use parental controls, so I don't know how effective they are. Regardless, there is no way in hell they are going to spend money to implement a program which makes their product less desirable than others, neither will they admit on any level that the suggestion could have merit. What company would? One of those bizarre Christian web browsers, maybe?
