If you have an iPhone, computer, anything having to do with watching television, movies, listening to music, playing games, or pretty much doing anything in the entire world you likely have an iTunes account. But did you know that iTunes doesn’t mess around when it comes to their terms and conditions? Do you ever actually READ Apple’s terms and conditions? Of course not. Whenever there’s an update you click “accept” and move on with your day.
However, if you actually stopped to read these 1000 page dossiers you’d realize that these guys cover just about everything. And that includes nuclear warfare. There happens to be a particularly interesting tidbit of information nestled in the 17,697-word iTunes Terms and Conditions EULA.
Once you agree to use iTunes, you are absolutely prohibited from using the shiny music app for “the development, design, manufacture, or production of nuclear, missile, or chemical or biological weapons.” Apple obviously likes to cover all of the bases. How would iTunes be used to help launch the world into a nuclear holocaust?
That my friends, is the ultimate question. Why even have this in your Terms and Conditions in the first place if you couldn’t use iTunes for this purpose? It means that you probably CAN. Yikes!
