    I am glad I looked at this thread, i don't want apple to do anything to my device unless I ask them to. With that said...

    The choices are "apple killswitch -on or off"

    This may seem like a dumb question but if I don't want them to have access I need to have it "OFF" right?

    WOW! So that's what the kill switch does. I saw it, wondered what it does, then turned it off because I didn't want to destroy anything on my own. Damn, Steve has a master nuke button. Control freak!

    I think if apple pulls the kill switch on something it'll garner that there's no way I won't heat about it. That being said, I disabled the killswitch because if apple pulls it, I'll know about it and decide why measures to take for myself.

    The question comes down to: Do I trust Steve Jobs, a known control freak (killswitch on), or 6 billion other people who's intentions are unknown?(killswitch off)

    Google actually has this too and have used it, it's a necessity though to have it on android because of the unmonitored market place.

    I'm not even sure that any of my Droid friends even know about their kill switch.

    Did Apple ever used this so called "killswitch" so far?

    I don't like SBSettings (**** ugly on iPhone 4), so I guess my killswitch is still on.

    No they've never used it. They'd only use it in an extreme situation where they somehow let through an app that starts installing malicious stuff on the phone or something evil. I think it's extremely unlikely they'll ever use it.

    If you get the right skin it looks pretty nice.
    The stock icons and colors on it are not that great IMO.

    I agree.
    I dont think its anything we should be worrying about.

    Get Serious SBSettings theme, it's pretty sweet looking. Not retina upgraded, but still nice.

    Apple Congruency (black) is the way to go.

    You mean something like the loading of a PDF giving a hacker full access to your device?

    maybe the kill switch is for when you lose your phone and want to remote delete all your data?
