Exactly, and Apple should probably take a page out of Google's book and offer up a nice cash reward for those who identify these type of exploits.  Instead, Apple's wall of silence and Mr. Double Down on Secrecy won't react until the exploit is out in the wild and they're being skewered by the tech media, humbled by the hackers, and than forced out of their cocoon of silence to do PR & damage control.  
And so when iOS 6 rolls out with increased privacy controls and requires user permission when an app attempts to access to contacts, calendar, etc. (making this removed app obsolete), the pundits will whine that the pop-up dialogs are a major annoyance.  
What?
Don't worry folks - you're in good hands!  
Of course they didn't note anything about charging for Facetime - perhaps an extra $20 per month to enable it over cellular :(
You really hit the nail on the head - the wording of the EU law is the problem and I believe the law also notes that it's assumed flaws did not exist at the time of delivery if 6 months have passed.  Apple's legal staff in Europe are fully aware of the law and have exploited it to ensure they can keep selling the warranties.  Also, the Apple warranty includes features such as technical support that aren't included in the EU warranty law.  As you noted, different countries...
Just like AT&T blocks the personal hotspot feature for the unlimited (throttled) data users, AT&T is obviously going to block them from using facetime over data too. There's nothing to suggest that they'll add a new charge if you're already paying for limited data (2G, 5G, 10G) but I guess AI just goes with the copy and paste tech pundit crowd.
The litigation losses mount - Mr. Sewell isn't earning his keep.
Poor Nokia is in the 'other' category and if you're a Fandroid crying foul, how about checking eBay and see how much the used devices are for selling for.
So a Google 'rising star' with no relevant leadership experience is suppose to right the Yahoo ship? So what kind of initiative can we expect from the 'rising star' - perhaps Google Buzz, Google Wave, or a dozen other product flops? With Google's immense success in it's core search business, they can afford to float a plethora of products in hopes that one will stick but not so for Yahoo.
