Apple I-Phone run by the BoogeyMan…


This comes from our Forums.. (Did you know we had forums?? Just hit the forums link above), from HMC-FMF-PJ.. Enjoy.. Definitley waiting on the Blackberry Bold now.  It is supposed to come out next month. To many issues with the I-Phone.  I now give you the terrific post from HMC-FMF-PJ

So how many of you proud iPhone owners know that Apple has built a backdoor into your phone so they can control what your phone does.

Apple decides what you are permitted to download and Apple decides what applications will run. Apple can choose to delete things off your phone without your knowledge or consent and Apple can simply shut your iPhone down so it no longer functions. And I am sure they told you that when you bought it.

But, hey, its all in the name of security and designed to keep you safe from the boogie man. That is why it was a secret function that customers were not informed of and initially pushed off as a crazy paranoid conspiracy theory when it was first discovered. Now that the cat is out of the bag, Steve Jobs has just confirmed the kill switch is real but has a positive spin selling it as a condom for your iPhone. Its there to keep you safe, trust me….

Jobs is quoted saying: “Hopefully we never have to pull that lever, but we would be irresponsible not to have a lever like that to pull.”

If only Microsoft would build a lever to disable computers…
If only GM would build a lever to disable cars…
If only Nintendo would build a lever to disable Wii…
If only DirectTV would build a lever to disable tv’s…

The world would be such a more responsible and safer place if a corporation (disgruntled employee or resourceful hacker) could shut you down or redirect your activities anytime they wanted to…

This and they there is talk in the tech areas that the 3G Chip in the I-Phone are having major errors and they there is talk that Apple is silently exchanging the I-Phones that are brought in with problems.
What do you think?

    I can't tell you how much this bothered me when I found out about it. I was a fairly early adopter of the IPhone, and in particular fell in love with the touch interface. I've ditched it for the moment though, any word on the Storm?

  2. I have an iPhone and really enjoy it. However, everyone knows or should know that Steve Jobs is a compulsive obsessive control freak who wants to control every little aspect of everything. Why do such awesome products have to come with such strong strings attached?
