Lets be real, ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END
Quite often I think that the iPhone is a great device, and as of right now, there is no option better in terms of a telephone. But who honestly believes that the iPhone will NEVER lose the pedastal as the number one phone? Na, I dont think so...
I think that this may be the first step in apple losing its grip on the cellular market. not completely letting go, but has anyone notice the large amount of phones carrying the Android OS? Hmmm... Is this possibly the setting of the platform that every phone worth mentioning is either an Android phone or iPhone? And then the phone with the exclusively released AOS version XX is brought out on the scene and dominates the market?
Google has it right, and has for a long time. Lets be honest, the GUI for iphone and lets say HTC Hero are day and night, mytouch emphasizes customization. Android market has a lot of the same apps that you see on cydia. Yes, an open source OS is the ish.
I'm telling you, with more phones that actually do more, apple is going to have competition. Apple made a product that was so over the top and before its time that people couldnt help but buy it. Apply that to a good OS and features that iphone can't touch, and the mobile phone market will be light years ahead.
Think about it like this. Active Jailbreakers dont make up a large percentage of the iphone community. Thats the truth. But Jailbreakers and unlocked people make up a percentage large enough to hurt sales for when a new phone with a good hype aroudn it is released for apple to notice.
Our outrage on this board equals in a decision to switch phones. I'm with all of you. Imagine that plus all the other message boards.

apple, you guys are idiots. you're pushing your users to an open source platform. something that has already been proven to be better than the bull$hit you keep dishing out...
if apple does succeed, it'll be the equivalent of shooting yourself in the foot..
good thing i didn't renew with att or get the 3gs...
11-06-2009, 12:27 AM #48How did you guess?
11-06-2009, 12:43 AM #49
what exactly do they mean with jailbreaking cops?
I guess all this will also mean that the future 4g iphones will probably be built from the ground and up to be jailbreak proof.
God! I SO!!! ******* HATE APPLE, if wasn't for the iphone's usefulness, I would have dropped their azz long time ago.
that will be the day!!!! of course that will also be to good to be true.

if apple will add all the features and functionalities of Jailbroken iDevices to the official OS,then it's ok to stop jailbreaking,but...the hell,many people don't like iPhone as is,everything can be done with Jailbreaking,i reallt don't know about this Apple.
maybe they should put their concentration on apps piracy not jailbreaking
Piracy=Jailbreak is always true but
Jailbreak=Piracy is not always true!

I will also add that many (note I didn't say most or all) of these people who "are trying to feed their family" as you put it are taking this appstore as a get rich quick scheme in that they are shoveling trash into the appstore to hope it sells. Look at the TOP SELLERS. They are not complaining about piracy (or at least I see way more of those who are butthurt that 500 people are using their app and only 200 paid. I think we can all agree that even 500 people using your app does not equal success/good app.). Why do the ones that make goods apps not complain? Simply because they made something that people are willing to pay for. It is just as important to put piracy into your profit margin as it is for any retail store to put shoplifting into theirs. Obviously shoplifting losses vary by area, but I am still astounded at the losses my girlfriend reports at the local Best Buy monthly in a small town in Iowa.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

If Apple were interested in stopping pirating they should just ask. Neither the Dev Team nor Geohot condone pirating apps.
I am sure Apple have read Oh no! Complicated stuff!
Apple are, IMHO, concentrating on the wrong things but it's Cat & Mouse....
Geohot has already said that he has applied and under qualifications he listed BlackSn0w....He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I doubt they'll stop the train. They especially cannot do it from a "legal" standpoint. Remember when Metallica sued their fans and they lost like half their fanbase? Same rules apply here. IF Apple did succeed in stopping jailbreaking, whatever Apple won't let us do,.......... Droid does.Screw #Winning, I'm #Juanning

maybe if apple made the phone themeable and many other features by default we wouldnt need to jailbrake to make the phone do what it shoudl out of the box.Follow me on twitter @inappmatt check out my YouTube stupidity Youtube.com/Inappropriatematt (NSFW)

The day I can't jailbreak my iphone will be the day I stop using it. I am preemptively looking for alternative phones already just in case that day comes sooner than anticipated.
