'Anti Sexting' Is Apples Latest Patent

Brett Favre better not have an iPhone.

Apple has patented a new technology that could be used by parents to prevent their kids from sending sexually-explicit text messages.

The new function could also help wives keep their cheating hubby's in check and from sexting other women.

The way it works is easy. The technology would let a user block an iPhone from sending or receiving texts with containing certain words, CNN reported on its website today.

In obtaining the US patent, which Apple filed for two years ago, the company says there is currently “no way to monitor and control text communications to make them user appropriate."

“For example, users such as children may send or receive messages (intentionally or not) with parentally objectionable language,” reads the application, according to the US Patent and Trademark Office.

It remains unclear how Apple will incorporate the technology into its iPhone products or whether it would appear as a built-in text-messaging app.

This comes as Apple’s shares topped $300 for the first time this morning as iPad sales and a planned expansion into China continued to give investors high hopes for the iPhone maker’s already healthy prospects.

Shares of Apple climbed $2.44 to $300.98 in morning trading after rising to a record $301.72 earlier in the session.

This gives Apple a market capitalization of about $275 billion, above tech heavyweights such as Microsoft, Google and Hewlett-Packard.

Apple has been on a tear in recent weeks, with sales of the iPad tablet surpassing expectations. Investors also have high hopes for Apple’s push into China, where the iPhone maker is

Looks like a new reason to jailbreak that iPhone eh?
