Porn-on-the-pod

There's a law in technology called Moore's Law which says that processing speed doubles every 18 months. This is why our gadgets get "outdated" so quickly these days, and why there's always something new around the corner to play with. Moore's Law is also adapted sometimes to explain popular culture processing speed -- for example, the speed at which porn adapts to and drives technology.

Wired's Cult of Mac blog documented the first -- so we think -- porn downloads (link: not safe for work) for the brand new video iPod. That's right, you can take your porn to go now. It's well known on many circles that having the convenience and privacy of porn in your own home is what drove VCRs to become so pervasive, and online video downloads have been a driving factor in broadband access for more than a few years.

What's fascinating is that this site came out one day after the release of the video iPod. The site's content and tagline -- "Grab a girl to go" -- leave a helluva lot to be desired, and I'll be thinking twice about overlooking onto my subway neighbor's videos when I see the video iPod on the subway.
