Apparently web browsers access porn sites

Shock horror! If you run a web browser on a device, you can access porn sites.  Some two-bit regional news site is reporting on the sordid details:

But because the Wii, the PS3 and other game consoles have Internet access, it’s easy for kids to access porn.

“It’s very upsetting something this popular—a kid game—can go that direction so quickly,” Schroeder said.

Young kids get it. In a blog, one child boasted, “The first thing I thought of when I downloaded the Wii browser was also porn.”

What’s worse: Some porn sites are advertising they are “Wii Friendly.” Their screens have been reconfigured to fit the Wii and the Playstation 3.

Wait but… wait… the Wii has parental controls that allow you to lock down web browsing.  I could be an idiot, but doesn’t this in fact make the Wii more secure than a computer with a browser?  I’m presuming Laurn Schroeder lets her kids have unfettered access to all electronic devices, given her outrage?

Grow some parenting skills.
