While the
fruit themed control freaks at Apple are demanding that people use its expensive gadgets in the way that Messiah Steve Jobs tells them, it seems they are ignoring the orders themselves.

Looking at a patent application for the iPhone biometric security patent application. Engadget worked out that they were looking at screen shots of a jailbroken iPhone. Yep the lawyers who designed the iPhone patent clearly did not want to work with the telco that Steve Jobs told them they had to work with and had installed software which was deemed heretical in St Steve's sight.
