And believe me, there is plenty of demand for that, especially in our porn/mass-shooter driven world.

The other half of me knows that Apple is biased toward one political party over another and much of that "family friendly" content will likely have deep political undertones, which I despise regardless of political leaning.
I'll be perfectly fine with Apple's "family friendly" content touting those people's ideas like clean energy, global health, human civility and caring, etc as opposed to those other people's (including the RWNJ mass-shooter crowd) ideas that, frankly, are outdated, despicable and gross.

That's what I'm talking about. A new iPad mini would be a dream at $249... that's like, gifting price. And if the Music & Vid gets combined into a single subscription at a reasonable price ($9.99 would be ideal) then I would definitely put it in my rotation of off/on-again subscribed services.

Also, I like porn... even if the kinks have gone a little sibling-sideways over the last couple of years. It'll even itself out, eventually.

So it goes.
