    Default Agreeing to iTunes' Terms of Service Means You Promise Not to Make a Nuclear Bomb



    South Park may have lampooned Apple’s iTunes terms of service agreement along with the millions who blindly accept the terms without reading them last year, but they missed a comedic gold mine.

    Everyone who accepts Apple’s iTunes terms of service agrees to not use the product to produce nuclear bombs.

    Wait, what?

    It’s there, it’s real, and I had no idea iTunes was an integral factor in the nuclear bomb production process. Well, the terms of service also prohibits the production of chemical or biological weapons with iTunes. I’ve searched through iTunes' many tabs and menus and still haven’t found anything regarding enriched uranium, guided missile systems, or rare strains of deadly diseases to be released unto the masses.

    Perhaps the recent bombing of an Iranian Nuclear scientist was Apple’s retaliation for using iTunes to make motivational playlists for those involved in Iran’s nuclear development program? Who knew Apple was so concerned about matters of national security?

    I guess the iTunes burn disk icon can now be interpreted literally...

    If I was building nuclear bombs & using my iPhone as the trigger, I'm pretty sure violating iTunes Terms of Service would be the least of my worries!

    Not to be a party pooper, but this is very old news.

    One thing PC users can do that Mac users can't... (it's at the bottom of the page)

    edit: The whole article is actually quite funny, so give it a read.

    They foiled my plan to build a nuclear warhead with iTunes and then get Apple sued for permitting me to break U.S. laws.

    Does making a nuclear weapon void your warranty then?

    It's not for you. It's so that they don't sue them after you triggered the nuke with their device.
