The possible loss of revenue through potential piracy by jailbreaking?

LOL my Nexus One has just arrived, My number is being ported to T-Mobile, My 3GS will make a great ipod! Yea T-Mo has a new (sparse) 3G network but I don't care. Their unlimited everything plan, compared to AT&T (with 17% employee discount) still saves me over $30 a month. I'm just saying that not everyone is bluffing.

[QUOTE=istinkles;5125935][quote=M4tt Dam0n;5125895]Yea but it's not nearly as easy to hack an xbox. and it lets you of course play pirated games, but also CHEAT on xbox live. Thats what I think is the main reason for microsofts actions.quote]
You are ill informed anytime someone says someone else is cheating its because they are pissed off that they are loosing modded 360s don't allow cheating of any kind and any cheats that may be used are usable by everyone not just modded 360 uses and get patched out in updates pretty quick.
(Most Cheats are save modifiers which anyone can do by simply connecting their 360 harddrive to their PC using an official M$ harddrive transfer cable that came with the 120GB harddrive to date there have been like 4 possible xbl cheats and they all got patched out very quickly.)
Now recently M$ banned a large majority of modded 360s because they found a way to read the hacked FW (just a drive FW which allowed booting burned discs not running unsigned code so no cheats) right after they banned almost 90% of all modded 360s hackers got fed up and released a new hack in which you actually modify the 360s files instead of just the dvd drive with this new hack unsigned code can be ran on the 360 meaning you will likely see a bunch of cheaters on xbl now pretty sad really because all this means is that thanks to M$ banning all those people now they are all going to get new 360s with the ability to actually cheat online.

lol.. . people.. come on, use common sense.. these people who are blocked are those people are there that are GLOBALLY known as being a iPhone hacker... because they, themselves PUBLISH this info. As its pretty easy no adays to link data together and then block that email address.. and or any info from that registered email address... cause you know a lot of them register their blogs using the same email they use for their iTunes (yes, it does happen) .. .
none the less.. iTunes isn't blocking people who are JB'd.. just people who are KNOWN public hackers...

Ya it's people using apptrackr and stuff..but also I still believe in apple a little bit. I think we have some privacy. If apple just took one look at this website they already know who all to block, it'd just be a matter of getting their account info. The fact that they got the info to me is the scary part

^That Man Speaks Truth.
I swear to god, every day I hear more things that make me second guess my decision to get another iPhone. WinMo 7 is seksi, and I already have 3+ years of experience with custom Roms and the like (A-Developers FTW). iPhone 4 had better be epic. Not just a feature update or a camera addition, the UI needs updating to stay competitive.EVGA P55LE Mobo/Core [email protected]/Corsair H50

i think everyone is missing the issue here. I don't think his app store account was banned, but his actually app store dev account which I think is different. Banning his dev account does in turn result in financial loss for both sharif and Apple, but there's no telling why exactly they banned him. I doubt they be dumb enough to ban all jailbreakers. Apple isn't that dumb.

So, you are jailbroken and stealing software, these are the ones that ruin it for us all. Yet apple decides to ban all jailbroken devices.
So, these guys stealing software are not phased, continue to steal software. People that jailbreak for extra features get screwed and apple loses more profit.

They aren't going to block you from the App Store if your a jailbreaker. They have no way of telling that. they are just singling out known hackers of their OS, the people that come out with the exploits and the applications. and all they have to do is use a different account, or just buy from a different store.

Dumb move Apple.
This only invite more hacking.
If hackers is good enough to hack your system, he can get by this ban.
