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?

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
