    Default "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

    i still say the producer jailbroke it for the TV out ability for the rest of the sketch. That and the placement of the icons. I dont think justin long jailbroke his phone.

    I would have been easier for them to use a program like "phoneview" or something like that so they can get the cov and send it to a computer. Not only that but thats still great publicity that a star would choose the iphone over another and then he goes on national tv with this product. Ps i hope that all made sense as i'm very hungover.

    everyone jailbreaks their iPhone.... it's the right thing to do!!! atleast he didn't have in-stall-ous! lmao

    He probably got the phone for free. He probably got it factory unlocked. It probably had root access from the beginning. When you are a celebrity, and you do advertising for a company, you don't just money, there are perks.

    There's definitely Apple employees with jailbroken iPhones. And I'd be damn sure that Steve Jobs has one on hand to see what "new features" he can put into iOS.

    Great that its shown his phone is jailbroken... But I would not consider him as tech guy, it is so simple to jailbreak now my dog can do it (if I had a dog).
