Apple patents technology to remotely disable protesters’ smartphones

So Apple has patented a technology that would allow police to remotely disable protesters’ smartphones.  So… what, are they aiming to corner the smartphone market in China?  Iran?  Syria? Burma?  This kind of crap is why I’ve got a jailbroken Android device, and desperately wish that somebody would offer a high quality Ubuntu Linux laptop.  The centralization of technological control allows for a beautiful UX, and catastrophic exploitation by the state.
