Christmas Computer-Porn Mix-up

internet safety month Christmas Computer Porn Mix up

MARION, Ill. (AP) __ A southern Illinois family’s Christmas went awry when a touch-pad tablet computer given to a 12-year-old girl instantly became what she calls a “Perv Pad.”
Jay Hardin of Marion tells WSIL-TV that the girl touched the device once to switch screens, only to discover two porn-related applications already installed on the computer. Hardin says he quickly took the computer away from the girl.

It isn’t clear how the questioned apps made their way onto the device. The manufacturer says nothing like that is pre-programmed on the Coby Kyros computer and that someone might have previously purchased the device, downloaded some extra applications and returned it to the store.

The Hardin family plans to replace the tablet computer with a new one.

      Why are jerks allowed to post garbage like moreofthesame did?? He is an idiot. I would charge him with libel.

    if you don’t like a post you have the free choice of hitting delete, otherwise don’t call some one you don’t know defamatory names, or look up the definition of libel and or slander.

    You obviously don’t understand the legal definition, because what moreofthesame did not intend to do harm, your calling learnthegame an idiot is the libelous act. I suggest that you lean to read, and keep your right hand out of your lap.

    What a cool post! I am just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well – resources like this web site are extremely helpful. As our company is based in the US, it’s all a little new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own real enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is beneficial in that case.
