OOD DAY FOR: Cashing in your chips, after police in Oklahoma City arrested a woman on prostitution charges for agreeing to exchange sexual favors for a box of Frito-Lays. The 36-year-old woman agreed to accept the $30 box of chips after the client, who said he worked at a Frito-Lay plant, told her he didn’t have cash. The woman was fined $1,142. (USA Today)

BAD DAY FOR: Clean technology, after Apple approved the first porn app for the iPhone. The app, Hottest Girls, shows photos of nude women and “frequent/intense sexual content.” Apple approved the nudity “upgrade” after unveiling parental controls, which let parents banish such sites from the screen. Apple’s Hottest Girls acceptance is expected to open the floodgates on adult material. (PC World)
