Google Glass Porn: Google Bans Porn Apps On Device

Google Glass has changed its developer policy to exclude the first pornographic app from their list of approved apps.

The app, by the adult app developer MiKandi, is called "Tits & Glass," is designed specifically for amateur adult recording and sharing on the wearable, glasses-style computer. Users could view and share pornographic content from a point-of-view angle. It also allowed comments and votes, as is the wont of all shareable media platforms.

Google Glass promptly changed its regulations, which forbid no-nos like hate speech, graphic violence, or gambling. This outright censorship is fitting for this enterprise of Google’s. The web behemoth seems hell bent on digging a stake in the future of technology, and this desire is perhaps most evident in Glass. Glass seems to be more power as a symbolic innovation than a real-life convenience. When the device leaves it beta stage and is accessible to the public sometime early next year, mankind will be one step closer to seamless, android-like connections to the Internet. With this high-minded ambition in tow, Google hardly wants to get caught in a  lascivious, PR killing controversy before Glass is even released.

Apple too is no stranger to babysitting their app store just in case of naughty sort. In addition to the stringent process of developing and gaining approval for the close source app structure, Apple has been inclined to release rules like “No more Fart Machines” to the general public, lest their most prevalent revenue stream be overrun with duplicitous and unnecessarily vulgar material.

This inclination to protect the sanctity of an app store is a marker of a company that wants all the benefit of big business with the homegrown innovation of small business owners. Mobile device behemoths have this security luxury. However, if Android’s adult app store is any indication, perhaps Google will loosen its guidelines in the future.
