iTunes is so bad it angers the user so much he/she will resort to anything  ;D

I wonder wtf happened for them to think "Yeah...We need to add that as a clause in our License Agreement" ... You know...cause those thing's are not already illegal anyway?

Now there is a challenge - an iTunes powered guided missile ... WTF code have they put in there?

Actually does that mean that US forces can't use loud music on iTunes during combat or interrogation?

So no more "Tell us where your leader is hiding, or we will play more Justin Beiber" techniques? Goddamn it, we are all doomed!  ;D

Actually one thing you can be certain of - if iTunes was used to create a WMD it would never get to its target without Apple getting its cut of the development costs (and even then it would probably crash before it got there).

+1

Also, if Apple were creating WMDs, they'd be trendy, fashionable, and there would be no reason to invade Iran because then they could be cool too -- provided they bought their WMDs from Apple, otherwise that would be some kind of infringement, and they'd need to be nuked real quick~! :P

Poor Apple. Would that they could loom as large in the psyche of the rest of the world as they do in their own.

Such is the fate of those who spend most of their lives within the confines of their own virtual reality.
