Scientists try to store porn for a million years

"Researchers are developing a technique for recording up to 360TB of data on a glass disk that should be readable in a million years. The move, which works a bit like Superman’s data crystal, will probably be used to make sure that you never lose that valuable porn collection."

Man views porn using Safari, files lawsuit against Apple

"Sevier is seeking damages and injunctive relief against Apple because they make products that can display porn ("or as the rest of us call it, the Internet," AboveTheLaw notes).

His complaint notes that "If Apple agrees to sell its devices 'on safe mode' before trial, the Plaintiff will terminate this litigation."

Computex 2013: MEGA Booth Babes Gallery

"As always, this year’s Computex was quite a busy show with tons of new products announced, but one of the most integral parts of the Computex experience is of course the hundreds of models hired by the many companies to draw attention to their booths. For those who weren’t able to attend this year’s Computex, we were able to get some help from our good friend David Chang from Yuki-no photography who was able to help us bring you a small glimpse of the Computex booth babe experience."

UK ISPs Say No To Mandatory Porn Censorship

"UK ISPs told David Cameron's adviser that they will not ban porn by default to prevent the sexualisation of children.

Claire Perry announced that by 2014 UK ISPs would require customers wishing to access adult content to "opt out". The Tory MP also told a conference the filters should be flexible enough to be turned off - for a limited time. The default setting would then return.

Nicholas Lansman, secretary general of trade association ISPA, which represents the UK's net suppliers, said that Perry’s comments were a bit premature."

Google says no to Glass porn

"Google Glass is not even out yet, but it is already generating quite a bit of controversy. Privacy concerns top the list, but peeping toms aren’t Google’s only concern.

Google apparently wants to keep Google Glass nun friendly, as it has explicitly banned the distribution of Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts or sexually explicit material. For some reason Google also pointed out that it has a zero tolerance policy against child pornography."

Many Gamers Would Rather Try A New Game Than Have Sex

"It seems that as many as one in two men in relationships would rather try out a new game than have sex with their partners. According to a not-so-scientific study conducted by VoucherCodesPro.co.uk, 49 percent would rather unwrap a video game than undress their significant other, while only 32 percent would opt for some love making. The remaining 19 percent are undecided and they say it depends on the game. The survey polled 1,442 Brits and found that 30 percent of them believe their partners would not expect them to turn down sex over a game..."

Nintendo Hijacks Ad Revenue From Fan-Created YouTube Playthroughs

The BBC reports that Nintendo is now using the content ID match feature in YouTube to identify screencap videos of people playing their games. They then take over the advertising that appears with the video, and thus the ad revenue.

Facebook losing users

"Facebook has to deal with a mass exodus of users who are no longer interested in giving up all their personal data so that they can be inundated with pictures of cute cats, conspiracy theories and US gun lobby propaganda.

While the company is expected to report that its revenues are up, it might also have to tell shareholders that its expansion in the US, UK and other major European countries has peaked. In the last month, the world's largest social network has lost 6 million US visitors, a 4 per cent fall, according to analysis firm SocialBakers..."
