    Apple manipulating their own consumers that's absolutely shameful.

    It does make sense. With iCloud being free, and MobileMe coming to a close, it's crucial for Apple to create a new source of revenue. Apparently there will be pay for play areas where for a fee Apple will allow you to record video. I wouldn't mind paying to help Apple maintain its margins. My Apple stock is lackluster of late. With the huge customer base paying for usage, this will prove very profitable.

    Already being discussed - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1171347

    PLus it's only a patent, not necessarily being put into practice, there's tons of patents that don't get put into practice....

    only worry if it starts showing up in coding or betas.

    So you could bypass this by jailbreaking or similarly not updating the firmware?

    There are millions and millions of filed patents that have never seen the light of day. I doubt this will come to fruition.
