    If they were running a modified OS they could probably drop the phone functionality, along with text messaging so that the only communications were via the apps they allowed. At least, I would assume so.

    Oh dear indeed, what's next an iPhone with a sniper riffle attachment? Or maybe just the whole thing could be a hand grenade? It seems like apple are slowly turning into umbrella, and we all know what happens there. ZOMBIES!

    For real. All they would have to do is take one of these modified iPhones off a dead soldier and they would have all the intel they would need to pick off US targets one by one.

    Sounds like a terrible idea to me.

    Yes, but then you wouldn't need a $500 device! They do have GPS trackers, but there's no reason to spend money on such an expensive device. This programmer made the app for use with the iPhone. He must have never been over there, as he does not know that you can't just be holding a handheld device while carrying 125lbs of gear and an M-4.

    I would be skeptical about using this as well. One of these in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. I am much more comfortable with grid coordinates given by encrypted radio (the way it's done today).

    The entire time reading this I was shaking my head... like... "Uh, yeah it's been done... Why would we need that on an iPhone when we've already got dedicated hardware for it..."

    Aaaanyways...
    I can guarantee you that at $600 a pop, iPhones are much more cost effective than BFT units.

    We all know how much the government likes to waste on defense products that could be manufactured and bought for far less money.

    I see you homos are still saying "first". This is the only forum I have seen that people do this on. And your not even the first one! You can take the sailor out of the navy, but you can't take the *** out of the sailor. Hahahahaha
