It's my device, if I want Joe from the mall kiosk to replace whatever in my device, that is my right to do, and I'd be the responsible person who risk the device being broken further or compromised with non-oem parts. On the other side of the conversation I understand Apple's reasoning for this and it's sounds like they simply want users to use OEM only parts, but they use this guise of "for security". Which also kind of irks me. . . Why do you call it a guise? If Apple doesn't make the interconnect APIs available, who knows what those knockoff people are making. I'm back to the point where the device should likely just hit you with a warning every 24 hours that you might have compromised shit installed - but I'm guessing that Scott and others will be against that level of frequency. I'm against a one time notice of there being a perceived security issue in the device. I'm not against a notification -- but every 24 hours seems excessive. Maybe a 30 second notification every reboot -- something that doesn't require any action other than waiting the 30 seconds. But this is just an "you may have been" there is no proof that something has been compromised. Just the possibility because a non approved person or company has worked on property you own. I think any notification that would force you to wait, period would be overly intrusive. Right, you MAY have been compromised with Apple's own stuff, too. But they would "conveniently" not show a warning. Therefore the warning would have nothing to do with risk, and everything to do with FUD.
