Security design and corporate objectives: the iPhone case

I found this item to be interesting. Quoting the article:
The phone has heavy armor, they found, to prevent users from doing things that undercut profitable activities for Apple, such as loading a ringtone without paying for it. There was more of a cardboard fence when it came to actions of little financial consequence, such as reading the iPhone owner’s e-mail and downloading his or her address book.
