Microsoft Pulls 'Sexting' Video

Microsoft has reportedly pulled a promotional video for its new Kin phone due to concerns that it might encourage "sexting."

In the video, a man takes a picture of his bare chest and sends it via the phone to a woman.

After outcry among bloggers about the content, Microsoft responded with a tweet stating it had edited the video of its "inappropriate content." "We take sexting very seriously & are sorry it happened," the company said.--Aaron Baar

    Too little - too late. No doubt, with the thousands of people who work for Microsoft, there are those whose children have been molested or possibly even a pervert or two. Time to talk to them about it.
