Apple Patents New “Anti-Sexting” Technology

Apple was awarded the patent yesterday for new technology that will let an “administrator,” which I guess would be somebody like your mom, block offensive content on iPhones by either cutting out the naughty bits or preventing entire messages from being received. Unlike conventional profanity filters, Apple claims its new technology can be adjusted based on a child’s grade level and will also filter out abbreviated words that other software may miss. Furthermore, instead of just blocking specific nasty words, this system attempts to “recognize the overall offensiveness of a message and [compare] that to a kid’s age and learning level.”
