Default Apple's New Patent May Allow To Remotely Brick Your Jailbroken

http://www.zdnet.com/blog/apple/new-...n-iphones/8020

Quote:
This is generally directed to identifying unauthorized users of an electronic device. In some embodiments, an unauthorized user of the electronic device can be detected by identifying particular activities that may indicate suspicious behavior. In some embodiments, an unauthorized user can be detected by comparing the identity of the current user to the identity of the owner of the electronic device. When an unauthorized user is detected, various safety measures can be taken. For example, information related to the identity of the unauthorized user, the unauthorized user's operation of the electronic device, or the current location of the electronic device can be gathered. As another example, functions of the electronic device can be restricted. In some embodiments, the owner of the electronic device can be notified of the unauthorized user by sending an alert notification through any suitable medium, such as, for example, a voice mail, e-mail, or text message.

I don't understand why Apple desperately forces control over its customers.

Wasn't there already a court case in which they ruled that modifying iphones (among other electronics) Was legal? Steve Jobs is a f*cking tool.

i'm willing to bet that with a root access exploit and some time, anything like that could pretty much be disabled, or circumnavigated.

Greed is a bitch, isn't?

And you know what? Apple users will still eat up everything that man spews out since Apple isn't 'mainstream' and 'better' than pc's.

That was the argument a friend of mine used, thus proving to me that all apple users are brain washed drones.
