This is important to all of us since the rise of Internet porn is easily accessible on the iTouch if it is connected to WiFi network, and free WiFi is everywhere. The review also mentions an app called Mobicip which acts as a filter for access to certain sites/movies/music (EXPLICIT)/ and TV Shows with ratings.
