Apple iPad offers "freedom from porn" – but not in Berlin

Apple’s Steve Jobs famously offered us “freedom from porn” in his ongoing war with Adobe Flash on the iPhone and iPad. But notoriously liberal Berlin has a different take on the matter, perhaps offering us freedom from being told what to do by Apple…

Billboards announcing the arrival of the iPad on Friday have been going up all over Berlin, but one of them in the subway station of Rosenthaler Platz is quite different to the rest. As you can see from the images below, the iPad appears to be about to offer an entirely new experience of porn.

But, to be serious for a moment, as far as we can tell the images are not stuck over an existing iPad billboard but have in fact been entirely created by “ad busters” having a little fun with the Apple campaign…

It’s perhaps no coincidence that not far from Rosenthaler Platz is the Mitte area of Berlin which contains the city’s highest concentration of tech startups, geeks and no doubt a few Apple fanboys.
