A man from Devon who claims to have read the iTunes agreement before clicking Accept has been referred for psychiatric tests. Mr Colin Bray, who says he was just a bit bored and quite curious to see what was in it, but had 'no idea what he was getting into', settled down to read the agreement after breakfast on Saturday morning, alone except for the company of his dog, Baltimore. The dog raised the alarm late Sunday night by howling and baying, and Mr Bray was discovered by alarmed neighbours upon their return from a shopping trip followed by a night out in Exeter. Bray was in a state of nervous exhaustion, having been trying to understand Ping for the best part of the afternoon. Surrounding Bray were a plethora of Apple products that he had apparently been experimenting with to see if he could figure out how to get music and videos from one device onto another and on which devices he was allowed to play them without breaking the terms of the agreement.
Lawyers at Apple Inc are only allowed to work on a few lines of the agreement at once. "We never expected anyone to actually try and read any of it," said a spokesman. "It's very sad that Mr Bray attempted it. He's clearly not your typical Apple customer."
Apple have apologised and promised that the 'Read Agreement' button will be greyed out in future updates.
