Apple Gets Patent To Prevent 'objectionable' Texts [readwriteweb.com]
Apple has been awarded a patent that can keep you from sending or receiving "objectionable" text-messages. The patent, filed in January of 2008 and approved today, will allow certain content to be filtered, based on parental controls.
