    Apple is determined to make themselves as hated as Microsoft. (EDIT -- Or, I should say, as hated as Microsoft once was.)

    Either way, it's inevitable that "hipsters" will start to hate Apple, as Apple increasingly becomes the dominate cultural force. Because that is what "hipsters" do -- hate the dominant cultural force in favor of a newer cultural force.

    Getting a "big brother" reputation is just the type of thing that could lead the "hipster" backlash against Apple.

    There is probably more to this story than we are reading from this one article. Apple can't set your phone to take pictures remotely without your consent as well as anyone else who had their picture taken by your phone. It is invasion of privacy on a larger scale. Plus no matter how much money Apple has, the government has more power and can put an injunction in place barring any tactics that would eventually be found to be illegal. Furthermore, like some of you said, the jailbreakers will have a field day with this and I foresee lots of locations being sent to Apple as "your mom's house" and a vast plethora of *** and hairy nutsack pictures. Apple is asking for it haha. Let's see what unfolds and what Apple produces then we can fearmonger at that point in time.

    All it takes is a EULA when you plug in your phone to activate/upgrade and boom they can do what ever you agreed even though you never read it.

    its not like he's doing it just because of this. maybe he enjoys android and windows more then overpriced macs and iphones (imo, please don't take offense :P)

    it's more like this is just another reason.

    i know that the devs will find a way so disable the kill switch but this whole thing is a load of BULL!!! im glad i am no longer thinking about getting an iphone. i was going to wait for the iphone 5 or get the HTC Desire or the Droid X. my 3g will be my last and only iphone. switching to Android i love my sisters and my friends android phones. im tired of apple and their whole stupid attempt to try and control the entire world. the only apple product i will continue to purchase will be an ipod and macs

    Apple has to be the single most ridiculous technology company on the face of the planet. There is literally no way to justify what they're doing with this patent and any self-proclaimed "fanboys" should seriously reconsider their brand loyalty because the only thing Apple has going for it now is the hip factor associated with their products. There is no more quality, there is no more sincerity, there is only greed.

    Isnt there already a killswitch cydia disables? Are we talking about the same one or a diff one?

    NVM: the one we know of stops apple from deleting apps that they have taken off the shelves.
