Unsolicited pornography.

A Catholic cardinal says that parents shouldn’t buy their kids wireless gifts, including iPods (though they aren’t wireless):

Cardinal William Keeler of Baltimore, co-chairman of the Religious Alliance Against Pornography, said iPods, PDAs and video cell phones can easily send and receive pornography, much of it unsolicited.

It isn’t clear how somebody could get unsolocited pornography onto my iPod or PDA, though I can see the phone problem, especially when a cell phone commercial in Canada shows a wife sending a video of her stripping to her husband’s phone.

Surprisingly, the cardinal does not caution against using the internet, which would seem to be a much larger problem from his point of view.

From textually.
