Just to set the record straight, I said "I do not watch porn on my phone" ... for such activities I prefer to use my 60 inch TV ... coz the viewing pleasure on a big screen is more appropriate ... and I totally agree that most of the people who claim they've never looked at porn are liars.And I'm happy I work with mobile solutions with all people using it in different ways. I believe Carl meant it as a figure of speach. Porn used to be a main driver for internet, both in terms of traffic and in terms of technical innovations. I am happy to admit that I have never watched and will never watch porn. But as a business driver one shouldn't underestimate it. Your science apps would likely not be available hadn't it been for porn consumers.At the moment, I am sitting in an equipment hut watching a groundstation track a new satellite... I have an iPad in hand and am taking movies of the spectrum analyzer screens to capture signal anomalies as the dish tracks... say what you will about iphones and the like, but sometimes they are usefull to have...But how much of that time spent on the iPhone, is taking pictures, and how much is spent looking at porn or playing candy crush? And is streaming video and playing games, worth spending $3300? I submit that it is not.I don't know about you but I do not watch porn on my phone or play games (the only game I play is Chess on my phone) ... I have over 50 GB of photography, videography & photoshop tutorials from Kelby, Lynda, Creative Live etc on my phone ... the phone also takes care of my online banking, expense tracking & it works as a scanner for many of my documents, receipts etc, it has user manuals for my cameras, photography, photoshop & technology related magazines & e-books. For me and many like me its worth the money spent on it ... plus when I sell the phone, I get at least 50% of the purchase value.
I design experiments with several scientific apps and read scientific journals on my iPhone, check email, call into meetings remotely, and even read the occasional novel.
Apparently some people have a hard time dragging their mind out of the gutter.
I use my S4 for many professional and private tasks, even taking some photos. But they have many limitations due to the form factoe.
Thanks Arctic...and tisk tisk, I say any man who claims they've never looked at porn is a liar, but then...that's par for the course with some people (and by porn I mean even a photograph...some of the photos on this site are almost soft core porn!). But no, I don't own a smartphone, and if I did, I would not view anything like that on it! But if you want to pretend billions of males don't view porn on their smartphones, go right ahead. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It even happens on work desktop machines, at least if you work for the government. I saw it on the news! If porn is not the main driver for the internet, or mobile internet, it's only because gaming and streaming cinematic movies such as from Netflix, are definitely now taking up all the bandwidth.
Just to make sure that I am still on the subject of Canon's 250 million digital cameras, let me say that they are not a single one of those 250 million cameras are good for watching such pleasurable activities.
