Open source is better in the Apple's case. Bravo @Saurik.

Wow, people are way too paranoid now days.

Releasing code ultimately helps Apple devs patch security holes they've missed - and forces them into securing iOS for non-JB'ers ASAP.
How can protecting both the JB and non-JB's alike possibly be a bad thing ?
Apple and their PR cohorts should be thanking the JB devs, not castigating them.

I'm sure he's releasing it just to create the need for Apple to patch the security holes in the older devices as well.
How's that for everyone who uses Apple products. They are sending a message loud and clear...they will NOT continue to support their own products and they don't care about the users. All they want is you to buy the newest version...which they will stop supporting soon enough after you do.

So to use your rationale, "Microsoft and Adobe are sending a message loud and clear... they will NOT continue to support their own products and don't care about their users. All they want is you to buy the newest version...which they will stop supporting soon enough after you do." Sounds stupid ay. Yeah, I thought so. Take your whacking stick and, well you obviously have a regular spot to position it somewhere.

You obviously forget that XP is almost ten years old and Service pack 3 was release about two years ago. The original iPhone and the 3G aren't nearly as old and this is a known exploit that can completely take over your phone and they are completely ignoring their users and the people that are being raked over the coals for making this public are the ones being blamed. There is ZERO reasons Apple couldn't patch this in an update, they actively choose not to in favor of you buying another product that was just as vulnerable.

So you agree on dropping support for some products and not other products. How is a 3 year old phone any different than xp os 2 years ago? It was totally up to date then, not ten years old!
Gee, for a mac boy you sure know quite a bit about microsuck. Not a troll are you?
Palm did the same thing when they went to windows mobile os and left us devout users in the crapper. So I went elsewhere. I don't use flash for linux because they treat us like lepers, refuse to patch a 3 year old vulnerability and leave our systems open to a whole world of malware. They have one code writer to write for linux. Who can I cry to about that little gem?
My provider gives incentives to upgrade phones at the end of each contract, they even offered to buy out 50% of my remaining contract to upgrade to iphone4.
So the facts are, as technology marches on at a pace a normal guy would find hard to follow, it is an inevitability. But people cry anyway. Thing is, I don't wana hear it over and over. It is what it is, so get over it, or get something else. I keep reading over and over how evil apple are and how jobs is a thief and fanboys are zombies. My question to those people, WHY BUY THE DAMN THING????? Some people just love to complain and bash, why do I have to read it? I come here for information, news and valued opinion, but lately it's just wall to wall bashing. I'm sure there are forums for apple bashing, go, enjoy. I'm over this infantile stupid apple/pc hate war.

I wasn't in the room but I know for a fact that Apple has shunned users for the sole purpose to get them to buy a new product. That's it. They've done it before with hardware. I'm not complaining about it, I'm just saying it's easily fixed and there isn't a viable reason to not patch something so simple. I didn't mean it to be a one versus another thing, just that it boggles the mind they wouldn't add a simple change to fix it.

Corporations will be corporations.
And why are you so angry sir? Lol.
08-13-2010, 10:39 AM #57
Not angry more just fed up with people bashing products either because they don't like the company or they don't understand them. I enjoy these great forums, but they seem to be hijacked by those with an agenda looking for a free whack. I've been in business for over 24 years and know the value of a good product and a good corporate name. It takes a lot of hard work to earn that. And when you become big and people see you as a threat some try and bring you down, even though they don't know you, understand you or even in some instances, use your product. They do it for no apparent reason. I don't have any moral objection to anything apple does. They make credible products and they try to serve all masters. Customers, companies they have licence agreements with and shareholders. I agree, corporations will be corporations. some bad, some no so bad and some good. I don't think apple are a bad or evil company. It would be good if the top 100 corporations innovated with foresight the way apple do. Lets look ahead a little and see what we can create. I have an iPhone. That's it. It's a really good phone for me. I've used apple computers over the years in the work place as well as numerous pc's. I personally enjoy linux. Just me. But when people say "I know for a fact apple kills babies" or something ridiculously stupid like that other guy, "I know for a fact that Apple has shunned users for the sole purpose to get them to buy a new product", I question their agenda and ask for facts (100% of the time there aren't any). Why do they want to tear down the name of a company like that? Because they hate the company philosophy or the guy at the apple store looked like a jerk or that steve jobs is jewish? I don't know. I've been there and it's bloody unfair when others do that while you try your best to please everyone. It's just wrong. If they don't like the product, then don't buy it. I've never put a gun to anyones head to buy my products. Some here seem to act like they have had a gun put to their head and forced to buy apple.
These are forums for things apple, I believe that's what it says on the banner. I come here to read and inform myself on things that relate to me. My phone, and I try and share my knowledge on relative things. This site stands as one of the best for that. Why there are these ever increasing anti apple people here, (unless there is a hidden agenda with them) I can't understand. Be open, be honest, cut the crap, declare your interests and we can get on with it. That's all I'm asking. If not, I will question anything suss. Take nothing as a given and question everything.

Funny that guy never got back to me with the "facts". Hmmm. Pardon me for trying to wade through the BS here.
