Thanks for the enlightening article. I totally agree with the EFF and just like any other type of electronic device (ie: computer) I own I would like to have the choice of doing anything with it (modding) and as long as it is legal no one should have an issue with it. Apple could revoke my right to honour the service or warrantee on it claiming the modification did damage the item and that could be acceptable. The argument from Apple regarding it's responsibility to it's eco-system does give a mild "Big Brother" chill. I think that if they are concerned about their responsibility to the Eco-System they could create a system or fund to stop the software piracy (which I am against) associated with jailbreaking and not the jailbreaking itself!

This is great and all but the real kicker is the warranty. The few people I know that /haven't/ jailbroken their phones are afraid of voiding their warranty not because they thought it was illegal even though I tell them I've had mine jailbroken for over a year with no issues. I think that's what needs to happen to get more jailbreakers. Maybe that's next??

Exactly, Congress got it right, Apple Inc. just wants to protect there asses from Jailbreaking and making the iphone work like any other Smartphone out there, they want it to keep the shape of a iPhone and not turn into a Windows Phone lol But hey Give the people what they want and you will prosper as a Company."Answering 1 Question at a Time."

I am totally agree. I have bought AppStore apps as well as Cydia and Rock apps. Most of unused AppStore apps that I have bought are because not meeting my expectation, and user experience is not comfortable. While Cydia and Rock apps are bought because I need the functionality and I could not find those functionality at AppStore. I am using a 3G (jailbroken) and a 3Gs (not jailbroken yet); both are upgraded to iOS 4.0.1.

Its all a bunch of BS what Apple is trying to do. Out of my social circle i was the first person to get an iPhone. And when all my friends saw what i could do with it after i had jailbroken it they all went and got one. Its only after they saw my jailbroken one they saw all the different things i was able todo with it for example. I could control my office computers through the iPhone. If anything i helped Apple sell about 1,000 iPhone more or less ... I hope they realize soon the benefits of Jailbreaking and release a factory Jailbroken device.

What if Adobe created and released flash for iPhone exclusively at the Cydia store? That would really show Steve the bigger picture, he would be so pissed off

Thank you so much for the time put forward in informing those (which there are many), that jailbreak has nothing to do with legalities.... Just releasing ones self from confinement. Such as a phone that is held back from being able to do things it SHOULD HAVE BEEN capable of doing at the time of purchase.
Long post, but worth the read!!!!

Yeah apple jailbreaking is so bad. That's why I had copy and paste 1 1/2 years before you graciously allowed people to have it on unjailbroken devices....

And that's just one of many apps that CRAPPLE decides we can now have.
And now, a couple years later, let's take advantage of backgrounder (multiple-tasking),and categories (folders)..... But wait, you can only put so many apps in each category.
What's iOS 5 gonna do???
Let us put a couple apps in each folder? Oh yeah... Thanks for the wallpaper! Not quite a theme, but we're getting close.
NOT SO MUCH!!!
@Comex.... We appreciate all that you do/and continue to help us with!!!!!!

I perosonaly think that Steve Jobs and is Senior Staff is Pro-Jailbreak, becuase come on guys they have over 15,000 people working for them I'm pretty sure if they wanted to patch the jailbreak exploit they would have done it a long time, with jailbreaking, it gives people a better reason to buy an Ipod Touch or iPhone-no wonder they made over 15 Billion Dollars in Profit

As you mentioned it, Kyle, if you paid full price for the phone it is yours and you should be allowed to do with it what you want. This applies to "prepaid" or "Pay As You Go" phones, NOT phones on contract as these are technically not yours until the contract has come to an end.
You mentioned the example of Laptops/Desktops with preinstalled OS. I would like to use a similar example. You would not pay full price for a car and then being told you only can use petrol from BP garages, or would you?
Now this stresses my point about locked phones which you buy as "prepaid" or "Pay As You Go" phones. Why do you have to wait and pay for an unlock for a phone which you paid full price and it is yours?
For example I paid full price for a "Pay As You Go" 3GS from Orange UK, needless to say it is locked to Orange, but to get it unlocked I have to be a Orange customer for at least 3 month and then pay £20 for the unlock. So that phone stayed in the drawer for over 2 month until ultrasn0w 0.93 came out and I could unlock it that way.
THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG!
Phones you pay full price for should be unlocked!
And it does not matter if it is an iPhone, a Motorola or any other phone make.
If it is your, it is morally wrong to have a lock on it and to wait/pay for an unlock.
