Skip to comments.Apple Sued For Porn Addiction: Man Says MacBook Cost His Marriage And Kids
Posted on 07/15/2013 7:34:51 PM PDT by dynachrome
Chris Sevier, a 36-year-old man from Tennessee, got so addicted to porn videos that his wife took his children and left him. Now he has sued Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), saying the Cupertino, Calif.-based company failed to install any filter in its devices to prevent his affliction.
In a 50-page complaint, Sevier calls Apple a silent poisoner responsible for the proliferation of arousal addiction, sex trafficking, prostitution, and countless numbers of destroyed lives. Sevier is seeking damages from Apple, but said he will drop the lawsuit if Apple agrees to sell devices with a safe mode.
Sevier claims that his addiction started when he accidentally replaced the a-c-e in Facebook with a --k. Sevier said this F***book site appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male, and he started to prefer the images on the screen to his own wife.

Stew him in his own juices.
Is it really that easy to make money in America?
With the justice system we have these days, he’ll probably win millions.
Mr. Sevier, YOU are the one responsible for what happened to your marriage.
So, can we sue toilet manufactures if we get diarrhea?
Good luck with that, “jerk”.
Or jalapeno farmers for the second burn
There is a link at the article to the complaint. It is poorly written and perhaps the biggest whine-fest I’ve ever seen outside of a DNC convention. It basically says that men are helpless fools, compares porn to guns and cigarettes and yes, works in the deaths of 3,000 Americans on September 11th.
“The plaintiff began to prefer the cyber beauties over his wife, which caused his marriage to fail. His wife abducted his son and disappeared, which was a consequence of Apple’s decision to sell its computers not on “safe mode”.
I’m surprised spitzer didn’t think to make a buck off his addiction by suing the phone company for not having a hooker filter.
And even if they did someone would have to have administrator privileges that was able to bypass the surf blocker and that would probably be YOU.
So what possible good would it do you to have this software preloaded on your computer?
Or maybe you want to turnover control of your computer to a complete stranger so that you do not have to control yourself. Are you that much of an immature pathetic looser that you cant control your own base desires?

This guy is correct on one point: Many men are helpless fools about this stuff. And many wives are sick of it. (I’m in the middle of a divorce from one such guy now.) Men pass it around by cellphone and e-mail, and the stuff some of these men look at can be really weird.
Egads! Better shut this down in a hurry— first they came for the porn, next it will be online fantasy role playing games!
This is so lame. I guess Apple is to blame for shopaholics, rapists, and murderers, too. Everyone has to carry his own water.
one of Chris’s “brighter” buddies came up with the scheme.
Chris’s buddy does a lot of online time at the I wanna Be a Slip and Fall Lawyer .com..... forum
Imagine what some loony conspiracy theorists have likely already begin to do with this claim...
I’m 350 pounds and have lived next door to a McDonald’s for years.Does that mean that I can.......
Good luck with that, jerk.
Yes...good luck in working this one out.
A bite of the apple, as it were...
Always ready to engage in fun. Never any backtalk nor complaints.
Gradient is the elixir of youth.
Party Poopers not welcome.
I know of a few couples, too. Real gals just can’t live up to plastic laptop fantasies. I recommend the new book “Boys Adrift” by L Sax—might give you a few helpful insights. I listen to Rush everyday whine about the “chickification” of our culture. (I love Rush, but really hate to listen to him when he starts trying to talk about women and relationships when he’s been a failure on many fronts). Well, there’s a lot more to it than feminism. Men have weakened themselves, and fathers are absent in many ways. All these electronics fulfill so many needs to the point that men can’t deal with reality...
Imagine if all men could collect for playin “Yank the Frank”. Not enough lawyers.
Strangely enough Jobs weighed in on porn a few years back:
When questioned about Apples role as moral
police in the App Store, Jobs responds that we
do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep
porn off the iPhone . Better, is what he said next:
Folks who want porn can buy and [sic] Android
BTW I bought an Android device...for the interviews, natch.
PS-Sorry about the terrible formatting.
Doesn’t P0rn make the web go ‘round, financially?
Men have weakened themselves, and fathers are absent in many ways. All these electronics fulfill so many needs to the point that men cant deal with reality...
I agree with that statement. To clarify further, though, it isn't so much the fantasy-type women that all men are addicted to. Instead, many seem to become addicted to very weird stuff. And there are many women out there - who may not even be very attractive at all - willing to do anything with these men. So, both men and women are at fault.
For awhile, I met with a group of wives in the same situation, and some of those wives were young and beautiful. Yet their husbands were addicted to porn and cheating on them.
seriously people like this should be thrown in jail for their ridiculous lawsuits
Then he needs to rule against the plaintiff and bill him a huge amount of money. Then publicly humiliate the plaintiff.
I also have an addiction. Except, my addiction is to freedom, not porn.
Some guys, I guess, can’t handle freedom and aren’t responsible enough to wield it properly.
that’s funny, my wife blows away most of the skanky porn stars I see in porn.
I can’t stand fake boobs, and can detect trashy skank from a mile away and it’s frankly a turnoff for me personally.
The only porn stars I like are ones usually new to the industry that still have that girl next door look about them who haven’t had surgery yet. And those are few and far between.
Blame Chevrolet for making a car that takes him to adult toy stores... that would be about equally plausible.
No libertine I and not even much of a libertarian, but he wants a nanny. Now if he wants someone who cares, he should go knock on God’s door.
When are they gays going to sue them for making them gay?
All this week, with so many stories, he wants to discuss some dentist with marital problems concerning a lawsuit and the relative attractiveness of that dentist's wive. He even posts pictures on his otherwise interesting website.
It's all about the image, all the time. With men, you just can't break throught the essential need they have to love what they experience with their eyes. Notice the men here who need to assure me that their wive are hot. They never say virtuous, or loving, or honorable bad true. Just about the eyes. They eyes are the sex organs. And the new electronics just exasperates the stimulus response.
You might as well leave them to play with their dollies...
Wife, not wive. Ack. My new tablets make my writing so awkward! And exacerbates, not exasperates.
Why not just forget about porn entirely?
I agree with you about Rush. I didn't know his wives were all so young. Wow.
Come to think about it, I've never seen a computer sold that wasn't in admin mode. I'm always coming across people using their computer in admin mode, without secondary login accounts or screen locks, which I then set up for them and teach them proper usage. This guy should sue every computer manufacturer. P.S. It's not only porn; a friend is addicted to movies and has illegally downloaded thousands of them (non-porn general movies). His wife never sees him but she doesn't care.
I want to reiterate my affection for Rush. When he had his heart incident in Hawaii I got sick about it. I have no animus against Rush. It’s just he has no business trying to be wise about love and women, because he is clearly misogynistic in his own personal life. He likes and admires men, and women better be extremely young and extremely attractive at all times. Hes just not capable of loving from the heart when it comes to a woman. its all about his eyes and what his eyes see. what do blind men do? Lately he has been surprisingly hard to listen to...
It's certainly driven the public's access to technology (VHS video tapes, as well as the video rental industry), DVD, and BluRay. And quite a bit of Internet traffic is porn.
I figure that that makes me part of the the thug kulture. St. Tray rulz (with 72 virginz).
I worry about boysn and this Internet. It's like they form an imprint and forever make themselves hopeless for love with an imperfectly formed woman ( and given time and no plastic surgery, we all fade to imperfection). Do you ever wonder if homosexuality is like a fetish, like the peculiar inexplicable sexual proclivities--like SHOE fetishes, for crying out loud.
Craving someone young enough to be a granddaughter, like Rush clearly craves---or feet, or the bodies of men...truly. We women can never understand the irrationality of men.
We cats can never understand the irrationality of women. (Speaking from a recent, 2 hour old experience.)
