Well, a massive rock has just been hurled at iPhone’s Isengard. A Seattle-based company called MiKandi is launching a porn delivery app for Android.
Since orgasms are the carrot that lead humans into pretty much ANY direction, this could be a major boon for Android and its symbiotic hardware. And I am violating my own snark doctrines when I say that with 100% sincerity. There’s a great story that the reason Blu-Ray won the High Def war over HD-DVD is that the porn industry threw its fleshy weight behind the former. I sure wish they’d throw their weight behind really useful things like renewable energy sources or Web Soup.
I wouldn’t say that this is going to topple Apple, but don’t be remotely surprised if you see a sudden, double entendre-like vertical spike in Android sales. Since people are in an unrelenting pursuit to harvest their boners whenever/wherever, this will definitely persuade those on-the-fencers who can’t even get to first base with iPhone.
ADDED THOUGHT: The coming months will bring with them a much stronger reluctance on my part to shake your hand if I see a sweaty Porndroid phone clutched tightly in the other one.
FINAL THOUGHT: I really wanted to get the jump on a slang term for this, so let anyone who masturbates to mobile content henceforth be known as “a bit-bopper.”
