iTunes License

Just downloaded the latest version of iTunes, and read the License Agreement (I know, I know, who reads these things right?), and this part amused me:
THE APPLE SOFTWARE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN THE OPERATION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES, AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION OR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS, LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES OR OTHER EQUIPMENT IN WHICH THE FAILURE OF THE APPLE SOFTWARE COULD LEAD TO DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.
I think if you're using an MP3 player to control air traffic or monitor the core temperature of a nuclear reactor, you're already screwed.



tt's cause when things go wrong.. all companies want to avoid tort liability... esp since this is a hazy aspect of the law... software malfunction leading to damage...

hahaha.. apple's on of the best companies when it comes to trying to cover backside. ;)


hahaha... oh god that's priceless, although i cannot believe you actually read that far into it to catch that bit.
