Apple has been granted patents for a filtering system, which could prevent the use of sexually explicit language on the iPhone.

That doesn’t sound terrible, does it? Well, it all strays haphazardly into George Orwell’s territory when you read a little further into the patent and see that the prevention extends to user input, as well as web and application content.

Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs has been very vocal in regards to what he sees as his moral responsibility, which is to ‘keep smut off the iPhone’.

We can’t help but feel that he’s overlooked a certain amendment that makes up part of the U.S consitution though – and it has nothing to do with bear arms.
