  • "Get a Mac" Guy is a Jailbreaker

    I'm not sure how Apple is going to feel about this.

    As it turns out, Justin Long, star of the popular "Get a Mac" TV spots from Apple, is among us. That is, he's in our "community," if you catch my drift. And while Justin's former bosses in Cupertino may not be thrilled with this revelation, Justin Long obviously isn't just playing a contemporary, cutting edge tech guy on TV. In real life, he's exactly that. And then some.

    During an appearance this week on late night TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live", Long shared a story on the program that involved a personal demonstration (iPhone and all) of a humorous SMS convo that, ultimately, revealed more - much more - than just the funny comments in the chat. During the segment (check out the video above), it was apparent that Long has a jailbroken iPhone (gasp!) as Cydia was clearly among his visible iPhone apps.

    One has to wonder if Apple would have to terminate Long's contract as a result of his "devious" jailbreaking activities - assuming, of course, that the company hadn't already pulled the plug on the "Get a Mac" TV spots. Nonetheless, it appears that the star of "Live Free or Die Hard" wants his iPhone to live as freely as possible. And its a really cool nod to the jailbreak community to see that one of Apple's most public faces is actually... one of us

      Just incase someone doesn't have the time to watch the whole video or maybe just doesn't care for the rest, here is the screenshot:

      I noticed that too. TVOut is the only option. I'm glad they took a practical approach to displaying it on the tv... <3 Cydia

      I noticed that too. I dont think he jailbroke his device... It was most likely the crew who set this up. Either way, jailbroken is yet again proven to be dependable and quite handy. Pretty cool tho... and those texts are OMG SOOOO funE! LMAO LOL ROFL!........ jk.

      Commenting on an Internet forum is the last thing I would do if I'm hungover you must not have drank that much

      He doesn't need one. He can just go out and buy a few when he wants to
