Google Glass Bans Porn Apps: Makes Colbert’s Wag Of The Finger

Yesterday, the first porn app for Google Glass was released; shortly later, Google banned the app after updating its Glass developer policies to prevent pornographic apps. MiKandi, the maker of the first Google Glass Porn app, updated the app to try to comply with those new policies, but Google has still limited or blocked their API limits, preventing the app from fully functioning.

This news made The Colbert Report last night where Stephen Colbert said “now the only way you’ll be able to watch porn on Google is to type ‘porn’ into Google.”

He added, “Why have a car you don’t need to steer if you can’t watch porn while you drive to church? … Now what are you supposed to do with your hands in there,” without being able to watch porn on your Google Glass.

Google told Fox News, “our policies make it clear that Glass does not allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sexual acts, or sexually explicit material. Any Glassware that violates this policy will be blocked from appearing on Glass.” But, MiKandi CEO Jesse Adams said, “when we received our Glass and started developing our app 2 weeks ago, we went through the policy very carefully to make sure we were developing the app within the terms.”

This is the second type of app Google has banned from Google Glass, first being facial recognition apps.
