A new bill in South Carolina would make it illegal for anyone in the state to sell a computer, tablet, or smartphone without a porn filter. But the bill's sponsors aren't entirely unreasonable men. You can petition to buy a computer without a porn filter — but it will cost Americans $US20.

A Victorian man has been fined $1000 after being caught driving along a freeway watching pornography on his smartphone.

There have been a few studies recently into the safety of mobile phone usage while driving, but I don't think it takes an in-depth study to realise this is not a great idea.

On Friday, many news sources reported that RCN Boston mistakenly broadcast a half hour of hardcore pornography during the night on CNN. If we look a little deeper, we can see this may not be true. The International Business Times first reported the story based on a series of tweets from one account that is now private. Mashable also wrote up the story, using a tweet from someone else, although it appears to be a screenshot taken from the original poster. (We’ve reached out to ask.)

OK, this is getting out of hand. Since the source for Yahoo's neural network for porn was released, it's been repurposed a few times. First, someone made it pump out Giger-esque images of genitalia of its own creation and now, it's been transformed into a video editor than can not only classify types of porn within a clip, but create and export snippets, ready for, uh, consumption. NSFW warning!

While almost nobody needs a panini press that can sign into Twitter, the powers that be clearly believe otherwise, adding internet connectivity to many of the pleasantly dumb devices that used to populate our homes. This raises a number of obvious security concerns and one equally serious, but far less discussed issue: Porn on everything, always.

Adult sexual content and culture has woven itself seamlessly into the fabric of the internet. Some of it is subtle, and some not so subtle, but there is now a wealth of dedicated porn websites available and plenty of demand to view the content.

One of the most popular is Pornhub, and according to its 2015 year in review, visitors to the website watched more than 4.3 billion hours of porn. Pornhub is just one of thousands of porn websites so these figures help us to gain some idea of just how much porn is available online.

So what are the chances of young children viewing porn online?

Bad news American perverts: McDonald's free public Wi-Fi will begin using filters to keep customers from watching porn in its US restaurants. The filtering will eventually affect all corporate-owned locations. McDonald's says the new policy is aimed at creating "a safe environment".

Earlier this April, a Russian photographer named Egor Tsvetkov used photos and an app called FindFace, a neural network that can link photos with social media profiles using facial recognition, to show how much information we wilfully give up online. Unfortunately the nightmare he was trying to warn against swiftly came true.

Axel Braun is about as close as you can get to a household name in porn. He's behind the biggest adult film titles of the last ten years, and his porn parody, Star Wars XXX, is one of the best selling adult films of all time. He also can't make a film for $US500,000, which used to be pittance in porn, without losing money. "nd the worst part is that before the movie even comes out it's gonna be pirated," Braun told Gizmodo.
