No, sorry, that's dumb.

The best way to "stop the madness" is to completely ignore iPhones,
iPads, iPod Touches, and other DRMed computing devices.  It should be,

to redecorate the cells of that particular user prison, not to mention
the entire matter being irrelevant to Linux groups in the first place.
