invents a new one way screw. This will make it impossible to open up a future devices. This new screw will go deeper and be tighter no matter which way you turn it. Some phone techs have even claimed that you can only drill out the screws and will have to buy extra plastic pieces to do simple repairs like changing out a keyboard or replace a LCD.

The OEM parts will also have a new RFID type tags registered to the device PIN to thwart off those that can buy after market tamper stickers. NFC will be the new Orsen Wells of your device. RIM will now know if you tried to repair your device once a cover is removed and send it via BBM to HQ.

It's funny you posted this, because when I first read this, I thought if anyone would do this, it would be Apple. However, it's all a hoax anyway.

Woah I can't even imagine how a screw cannot be unturned. If this was true, it would make furniture a lot sturdier since with frequent use many wooden and even metal furniture's screws would loosen by themselves.
