Is that needed in a EULA?
Ah man, I was working on getting iTunes to launch a missile whenever I played War by SOAD, now I have to scrub that project.
Hmm...what's next, mail launch one whenever I get spam?
EDIT: hold on it doesn't say deployment, only development, design, manufacture, or production, project back on?
ha-ha. Maybe North Korea will be alright one day?
This is also from an iTunes Terms. (Actually the most current on their website [PDF].)
Who loads iTunes on a "life support machine" or "Air Traffic Control Systems?"
Seriously, do they think ATCs are listening to iTunes?
LOL when the music stops so does your life support
Slow airports with nothing better to do than integrate iTunes into the FAA mainframe. Gotta have some tunes to while away those slow days!!
Apple has thorough lawyers, I guess.
I've never actually read the EULAs, but Im guessing thats just a standard agreement that they use for all of their software, OS X included, and OS X could be used in the development of Nukes.
Still funny though
It reminds me of the Powermac ad, where the computer was "for the first time" classified as a weapon by the US government because it could perform over 1 billion calculations per second.
not that it would stop any country from doing so since they easily could make the law in such a way that this electric eulas are invalid and then legally use itunes to play ride of valkyries when launching the nuclear rocket
note: not that this chapter would be valid in many countries anyway: since it limits resale to US law which in many countries wouldn't go through
just because US has an embargo on cuba doesn't mean others have too
Music has been known to.... animate the statue of liberty... see Ghostbusters 2. You just never know.
Oh damn, there goes my plan for installing loudspeakers in nuclear missiles and blasting Bombs over Baghdad when they're dropped on Iraq.
You too, huh? I guess it's a popular thing. Which makes sense that would put it in the EULA.
I remember reading this some time ago, it's very strange (but funny), I'm guessing Apple doesn't want to be sued if iTunes causes the end of the world!
There goes my plan for building a Global Thermonuclear War game for the iPhone using Apple's WOPR computer.
Who am I going to play WarGames against? I don't know of anyone else.
Just go to the iTunes U section for a full selection of downloadable Uranium.
It's DRM-free, too!
That is actually a pretty old one, it has been in the EULA for years. Yeah, I know, it had been on Gizmodo a few days back.
Your point being?
Nothing. I just don't see a point posting this now..it's not like someone just found it and it has to be shared right now because that's years old.
Well i hadn't seen it, so thanks to the OP. Quite a funny find.
Think about it folks, they're just covering their asses incase somebody decides to use iTunes to spread some information about the creation of Nuclear Weapons etc.
Nobody really thinks that iTunes is an integral part of a WMD. But is a potentially effective tool for the sharing of information.
Really? I just thought someone cut-n-pasted text from OS 9 or some other product and included it in the EULA.
I wonder what the EULA looked like for iTunes 1.0.
Probably the same as SoundJam's
Now the $5 question: How many people got that without having to go to Wikipedia?
