Could? If they weren't so greedy they would have approved it the next day. But now that they aren't able to con as many people into new gadgets every 6 months handing out a lousy few K, and helping a kid pay for college, would prob pain their corporate brain. One of the planets most greedy corporations.

Technically, the boy wasn't the first one to find it if I remember correctly.

I still think it's funny this bug was found because the 14-year-old was Facetiming his friends to play Fortnite. Classic.
