    I'm posting this here for those who are like me and have no desire to own an apple product.

    This is just one more resone to add to my ever growing list of reasons to never purchase an Apple product of any kind.

    Maybe I am missing something, but from the quote in the article, it seems like an advance safety feature.. Absolutely nothing to do with being able to unlock the phone.

    this article is crap. how doe's the guy go from “Unauthorized User” to shutting down your phone if JailBroken?
    There was talks about able to restrict your iphone if JB since the 3G. I never hear of one case reported that apple did this.

    A lot of blah blah blah for nothing

    What this article is getting at is what Apple potentially could do with this type of technology. This is just another way for Apple to say what you can and cannot do with your phone.

    They have every right to say what we can and cannot do with our phones.
    That's why people don't buy 'em. It's that simple.

    I'm pretty sure that every mobile company has technology like this. Nothing new. You think that RIM, Motorola, Nokia, ect...can't control there devices if needed? There was an interesting article on how Nokia gave iran access to all the Nokia phones used there so they could monitor everyone.
    Like i said nothing new......

    And the government could potentially watch everyone that has a webcam.. Are they going to? no..
    Could every cell phone manufacture block unlocked phones? More than likely..
    For one thing, it would be bad publicity and bad business for Apple to shut down unlocked iPhones. I don't see this happening.

    When you hate a company enough that you go out looking for justification, these are the kind of articles you will find.

    YOU ( as the purchaser/consumer) always have a choice..

    i bought a Macbook Pro in 2008..
    I DID NOT buy a Mac Mini even after all the updates..
    I DID NOT buy a Macbook Air
    I DID NOT buy an Apple TV
    I DID NOT upgrade to the iphone 4

    and same with other things:

    I Still have Windows XP..
    I DID NOT go VISTA

    at the end of the day, if you're buying for yourself and not for your company..
    you have every right NOT TO BUY.

    Funny pk, I don't have a picture but I used to own an Atari computer. Haha

    Anyone remember those Comodores? Awesome machines!

    Actually the US Copyright Office ruled that people who buy iPhones can pretty much do what they want with them, including jailbreak and use any software they want. The only thing Apple can do is void the warranty. Not a big deal for those who want modify their property. Apple actually said allowing this might bring down cell towers!

    I just don't get your logic here man. Once I pay for it or sign that contract, it's mine.

    I accept that certain things might void the warranty, just like a car, but that is always the choice of the end user.

    I wish I could afford a Mac G5 or whatever is latest and greatest as my home computer. Kids keep putting viruses on my Win computers at home. I really like Mac OS - we only work on Macs at the company.

    But, at the same time, I don't like any of the other products that Apple spits out. iPhones, iPad (seriously, who is in charge of branding at Apple?), iPods - all fun to play with, but they just seem so... unfinished.

    I'm talking about beforehand. If they choose to make their product in the way that they do it's up to the consumer to make the decision to buy it or in some cases to keep it within that 30 day return window.
