The one about the time someone sent Carl some naughty pics

Topics we discussed:
Carl’s Apple Problem

If an employee had sent porn, we would fire the employee. If a client had sent porn, we would fire the client. But when Apple sends porn you can’t fire them without changing your entire business model. They are in a position of power.

Who’s responsible for this type of thing at Apple or nGen, the developer the employer? What the what?

General sentimate is “get over it, this is how our industry is, get used to it…” We call bullshit on this stance.
