Signing does that.Apple makes consumer electronics, and everything they make is designed to connect to the Internet.The connected world has become a dangerous place.Primarily a consumer platform, we should expect consumer-level protections.If you want a developer platform use Linux. ;)Richard GaskinFourth World Systems
