AT&T cedes control of your iPhone to Obama

The latest update to iOS 6.1 from AT&T has a new feature – Presidential Alerts. Unlike Amber Alerts and Emergency Alerts, Presidential Alerts cannot be turned off.

So if Obama wants to talk to you, you have to listen. No matter what you’d rather be doing.

Remember when Hal wouldn’t open the pod bay doors? Yeah, well, now your iPhone is Hal.
