Porn is easy to find on the Web through a simple Google search, but as I reported this week, the company's policies make it clear that explicit content is not welcome on Google Glass.
That perceived paradox had Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert wagging his finger at Google on Tuesday.
"Now the only way you can see porn on Google, is by typing 'porn' into Google...or really anything into Google," ranted the comedian on his satirical show, "The Colbert Report."… Read more
Last week we learned that porn is being developed for Google Glass, finally giving me reason to be creeped out about the new technology, even if it is still in the development phase and not yet ready for prime time.

Those who steal your identity digitally are not nice people.
On the other hand, they are still people. Which often means that -- somewhere -- they have online enthusiasms which still take them over and reveal their own identities to the outside world.
IRS investigators say that a predilection for food porn created a digital footprint for a suspect whom they were trying to trace.
As Florida's Sun-Sentinel reports, the investigators were in pursuit of a man who was said to have 700,000 stolen IDs available for sale.

Even the residents of Vatican City need to be entertained, but are they pirating porn?
The blog TorrentFreak recently compiled a report alleging that computers located in Vatican City are downloading pornography. A recent tale of Irish priests enjoying first-run hits at their home movie nights piqued the blog's interest to see what the residents of Vatican City have been downloading.
TorrentFreak recruited the help of ScanEye, a Web site that tracks and analyzes this type of online activity. ScanEye's data found that computers inside Vatican City were downloading films like "Love Actually" and TV shows … Read more
