Apple now the (un)proud owner of several iPorn domain names

Apple is now the (un)proud owner of several domain names that it really doesn't want. However, it would rather own them itself than let someone else have them.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company had filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Forum against the original owner of the seven domain names in October.

Along with the never-to-be-forgotten, Apple now owns the following domain names:

All of the domain names in question forwarded to a mobile porn site when visited on a mobile device.

Yes, Steve Jobs, that includes iPhones. Jobs had earlier made the famous statement that those who want porn should use an Android device. While it was true that no porn apps would be allowed in the curated App Store, he totally dismissed (or ignored) the fact that porn sites could be readily viewed in mobile Safari.
