Apple Tries, Fails, to Thwart Iphone Free Ringtones

Apple took another fell stab at choking off the ability of their enslaved drones to do what they want with the products they buy, this time taking the form of a patch to iTunes designed to prevent users from creating their own ringtones and then synching them to their iPhones. However, it seems a workaround already exists.

Chalk another one up for the internet hive mind, and for consumer rights everywhere.

I am sick and fucking tired of hearing about the goddamned iPhone. I didnt think that you would have been talking about it.

Ugh.

It's less about the iPhone and more about combatting the greater threat of lockjawed DRM wherever it may rear its ugly head.
