Apple is slowly but inexorably changing the standard four-lobed Philips screws with “pentalobe” screws in its new iPhone 4 models and swaps them out when you take the iPhones into the Genius Bar for service. This aggression will not stand, man!

Luckily, the lads at iFixIt found a solution: they’re now selling pentalobe drivers in a iPhone Liberation Kit and, better yet, they hired a hot presenter to talk about the whole thing on video.

Even if you don’t find the prospect of pentalobes that egregious, just remember: It’s clear that this is the first step towards a totalitarian state run by oligarchs.
