Apple Can Remotely Disable iPhone Apps?

Really? Not according to Apple. At least not yet, anyway. The company appears to have denied the allegation to BusinessWeek. And certainly the bit of code that’s inspired all this speculation seems more proof-of-concept then anything else. Perhaps it’s a future reassurance for Apple’s (AAPL) new friends in the enterprise space.

{
    "Date Generated" = "2008-08-07 17:30:38 Etc/GMT";
    "BlackListedApps" = {
        "com.mal.icious" = {
            "Description" = "Being really bad!";
            "App Name" = "Malicious";
            "Date Revoked" = "2004-02-01 08:00:00 Etc/GMT";
        };
    };
}

com.mal.icious? “Description” = “Being really bad”? A 2004 revoke date?

There was a worry before I started this that I was going to burn every bridge I had. But I realize now that there are some bridges that are worth burning.
