iPod Apps: Make Music, Not War

Recent news articles from Newsweek and cnet report that the US military has deployed the iPod Touch and iPhone in the battlefield, as a user-friendly, multifunction device to assist soldiers with communication, translation, intelligence-gathering, logistics and training. Sorry, guys, but you’ll have to read the fine-print. The iPod Touch software license clearly says:

“The iPod Touch Software and Services are not intended or suitable for use in situations or environments where the failure or time delays of, or errors or inaccuracies in, the content data or information provided by the iPod Touch Software or Services could lead to death, personal injury or severe physical or environmental damage, including without limitation the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, life support or weapons systems.”

And you thought the Apple lawyers were just being over-zealous when they drafted that clause.
