Confirmed: Apple TV Has No Backdoors

Remember that rumor about Apple locking out hacked Apple TVs? Well, their official word is that no, they don't do that.

Apple's just said they did not put a backdoor into the Apple TV and whatever you do with your box is your own business. Just don't come around with a broken Apple TV box running Ubuntu Linux and expect them to fix it for you.

The official word from Apple: "We are not doing anything proactively at thist time, but if users hack their systems, they're voiding the warranty."
