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.
In the picture you can see Installer.app,
SMBPrefs, and the iWood Realize theme from the iSpazio repository. Apple's
briefs Kramer, Levin Naftalis & Frankel are going to be in hot water when
the office opens this morning.
There is no reason why the patent needed to
show a jailbroken phone as it is not relevant for the technology and it was
probably drawn from real life to illustrate Springboard variations.
there is something wrong with your control freak behavior when even your own
lawyers think you are being a bit silly.
