    Default Russian iTunes Users Getting an Eyeful With Porn Advertising Bug [NSFW]


    Well, Apple’s iTunes 11 launch in Russia is going swimmingly.

    The issue, as you can see above, is that iTunes is actively advertising porn to Russian users. Hilarious? Yes. A problem? Maybe. IPhone.ru speculates that the issue is a simple placeholder link error.

    “most likely, the problem arises because of links: the people responsible for iTunes, put the “temporary” link type xx.xx.xx. That’s just such a site exists, and, as we have seen today, has nothing to do with the ideals of the company. Waiting for the fix.” — iPhone.ru
    Reports of iTunes outages have circulated since the latest version’s launch yesterday, but it’s unclear if the Russian faux pas is associated with the outages. If the fix is as simple as changing some links, expect the ads to disappear soon if they haven’t already.

    Seriously, who thinks it's a good idea to post that picture on the main page of the site. Can you please edit your entry so the picture only shows up once you have clicked on the blog. I visit this site often and don't really need a picture with XXX written all over it show up. Common sense!!!

    So, let me get this straight, NSFW yet the picture shows up in the main page? (Yes I understand the picture is edited, just amusing)

    I can only be aroused by a Black Box for so long and then I have to move on!!! Hahaha!

    I wonder if in Russia they advertise mail-order American wives?!?!

    ...and, seriously, why is it all in English if its Russian iTunes??? I think, instead, Phillip had a fun time scouring the Internet for a pic he could Photoshop onto 'his' personal computer's iTunes! LOL!!!

    On the russian iTunes they used xxx.xxx as a place holder, xxx.xxx turns out to be a porn site that is in english.

    What the hell? Just because it has XXX written on it its suddenly the end of the world. Honestly, I've seen worse in the hallway at my high school. You can go shelter yourself in a nice little room where everything in the world is fine and dandy and censored and shielded and completely G rated. It's a human body part for gods sake
