Ethics and Technology

Ethical Dimensions of Technological Products

Apple allows people to use software updates to unlock its i-Phone to be used with other than AT&T. Apple has taken no steps to proactively dissuade users from adopting this practice. Have you ever given a thought to why they allow people to hack their i-Phones. Well I tried to put some pressure on my mind.

Do they want to increase their i-Phone sales at any cost to make it another block buster record breaking product like the sibling product i-Pod and place it in the same league. Or are they having the technology to fill the gap. Or they just want people who love apple products to use them at any cost giving them viral publicity at no additional cost.
