Forget Ringtones, Google Porn is Most Popular on Cell Phones

Perfect 10 is suing Google because too many people are getting the company’s adult images for free via the search engine. Now comes news from the New Scientist that Google themselves have confirmed porn searches are popular on cell phones.

Computer scientists Maryan Kamvar and Shumeet Baluja analysed 1 million searches made using the firm’s mobile search software. They found that “adult” material constituted 20 per cent of the searches on cellphones, but only 5 per cent on PDAs. Just 8.5 per cent of searches on desktop computers are for adult material.

And there was I thinking these people were simply text messaging their vote for American Idol! ;-)
