English stand-up comedian Eddie Izzard once said "No one in the universe has read the terms and conditions". He was of course referring to the terms and conditions of iTunes which we all blindly accept in the "ordinary course of our social business". He went on to say "anything could be in the terms and conditions, we can take your buttocks and sell it to the Chinese, fine fine, we are going to rearrange your toes and number them, yes yes, we are going to put your underpants in hedges around the world, yes fine". Although I do not suspect for one minute that a reputable company such as Apple Inc. would ever contemplate selling our collective buttocks to the Chinese, Mr Izzard does make a good point; we truly have no clue what we are agreeing to.
