Apple The internet is abuzz with the news that Apple intends to break iPhones containing third party applications. Unlocked phones are also likely to be victims of the next software update. While community reaction is generally negative, one blogger suggests sending an even stronger message to Apple by boycotting Apple on October 1. If you're running the Installer application, you may want to hold off on any iPhone firmware updates.

Don't be a sheep, don't think that a silly license can dictate everything. Otherwise, I hereby revoke your license to post here. By reading this post, you agree to my terms.

Actually, the boycott proposed here is not because of unlocking, but rather, because of the third party apps that extend the iphone.

Also, the problem is not about the license, but rather, the fact that the EULA prohibits this is the first place.

You should really read the article before posting.

Except that you don't run the site. Apple on the other hand, manufactures the iPhone and you buy it from them.

Not if I buy one from somebody who wants to get rid of their iPhone and sell it to me. Think I would accept license terms from an end user on a piece of used hardware? Would you?
