On apple's new found control freak nature

I find it sadly ironic that Steve Jobs, who began his career selling computer components designed to circumvent the effective access controls of the telephone system, is now reduced to selling blatant bullshit about the fragility of telephone networks. Certainly given his background, he should know better than to say that an unlocked cell phone can bring down a cell tower. It saddens me that he'd even try to repeat such bullshit. For shame, Steve Jobs, for shame.
