That was my very first thought, but it does look more and more like a Microsoft mistake.
My desktop system at home runs Windows 7 Ultimate and I have it set to "tell" me about updates, but let "me" decide when to download & install them. I always wait until all the bugs are known before applying updates. Good thing, too, because all my systems run on AMDs!
Amen! What kind of jobs do these kids have that would let them buy their own iPhone? No, they get them from their parents and it's totally the parents' responsibility for limiting the use of the phones. Apple, as much as I hate them, bears no responsibility for raising your children.
