    whats the full location of this "KillSwitch"? all the article says is that its inside CoreLocation... but whats the EXACT location? so that people can go through and delete this URL so that it doesnt happen... anyone have this Jonathan Zdziarski guy's email or something? then we could ask him for that exact location for deletion.

    BTW: im lookin know to see if i could find it... but it would go so much faster if we can get in contact with this guy... Mods or admins? any help here?

    did you read the full article? (and the link)? what it basically says (to my knowledge) is that Apple has added a url/program that "monitors" your iPoT/iPhone for any "cracked apps" or others and literally tells them to quit the app where it wont be used. rendering the application useless. thats to my knowledge... i want to try and get in contact with that Jonathan guy to get a little more information about it. but i dont have any contact info for him...

    yeah, if you read an article on engadget about 3 days ago, it said the iPhone calls home to apple, giving it information and stuff. its in CoreLocation, but I dont know the full directory. apparently its hidden, thats all i know

    Hey, wasn't there an article on this a couple of days ago?

    I'm pretty sure that this would be for malicious apps that could be created, I don't think that Apple could tell the difference between cracked and legit apps.
