In welcome news today, a German court ruled that Apple could lock sales of iPhones to T-Mobile accounts only.
The moved was hailed by Apple followers.
Macworld magazine editor Jason Snell said “Now German customers will be free to experience the iPhone in its pure, locked state. Just as god intended it.
“Did I say ‘god’? I meant to say ‘Steve Jobs’. Ha-ha! How silly of me.”
Many expressed their sincere joy that Germans of all political parties would be able to come together in the warm glow of iPhones at their locked best.
“The iPhone will only truly work properly if it’s locked to one network,” said lolPogues’ David Pogue.
“For example, visual voicemail requires special setup on the part of the cellular provider’s to really work.”
Pogue paused as he turned his iPhone over in his hands.
“And, uh, I think that’s it. But visual voicemail is a pretty important feature. When people are asked to rate the iPhone’s features, it’s consistently number 13 or 14. It’s after YouTube and just before Stocks.”
When reached for comment, Apple and T-Mobile said they were pleased to be able to offer the iPhone all locked up and shit.
