  • "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

      Apple is the shining beacon of what it means to be "anal".

      lol you guys are dumb, why would steve jobs be jealous? Apple devs can make their own custom code far more optimized for him, he can customize it further then any of us.

      Now that jailbreaking is officially legal I don't think he would get in that much trouble. Maybe his contract with apple may be terminated but it's not like there are Mac vs Pc tv spots anymore so it doesn't really matter. Plus he's an actor anyways, I'm sure he can find other things to do lol.

      He's not under contract with apple anymore, there hasn't been Mac vs PC ad in a while. He's done many movies since then including live free or die hard and his new one with jenifer aniston

      When I got my iPhone 4 replaced they brought out a manager from apple. He was restoring my phone and he went to reply to a text on his ip4 and he swipes and reveals sbsettings. I asked "jailbroken huh?" and he says "nooooo... What are you talking about?" lol

      Out of all people, WTF did Disney remove the vid, lol?

      I did find the mispellings on his texts pretty funny (on part 3, shown in an earlier post on page 5). Dewin, Beeber, lol. Cool that even some prominent Apple people are among, just pretty cool
