Even of that's your intention, if you don't patent it someone else could, and they might not have those intentions. You can patent something and still be altruistic.Not saying that's Apple's intent.Regarding the idea, it seems more useful in situations where the "threat" is from health problems or the environment (like the guy cleaning his furnace who got stuck and couldn't reach his phone and had to cut off his arm after several days), as opposed to, say, a mugging.I'd be...
