    Most devs are NOT millionaires. Very few ever reach that status. And if they do, they greatly deserve it.

    exactly. This was not a how-to guide on pirating the apps, just info on what's going on. Sad to hear people are to cheap to buy a 5 dollar game for there $1000 and up Mac

    I don't think its about being too cheap to buy an app. Can you tell me you have never borrowed a friends tape, CD, DVD movie to make a copy for yourself....or how many have ever had chips in the PS or Xbox to play copied games...

    I did not know it was about this instead the mod just said it was and closed the thread.... if its not telling how or where then whats the harm in free discussion? I don't get it.

    I find this forums policy on warez quite funny. They do not support pirating because it's illegal while they have supported jailbreaking for over three years even while the legality of it was being debated by apple, which wouldnt have made it illegal per say but it would put it in a gray area where it could have been made illegal. If it had would those of you who had jailbroken iphones restored them? If it had been made illegal would you have complied and not jailbroken anymore? My point is moot now since the bill stating jailbreaking is legal has been in effect for a while but still. Besides the legality of it what's the difference between jailbreaking and pirating? In basic terms you are doing something that the creator of the product wishes you not too. I just thought it was kinda funny.

    One is stealing and one is modifying a device to add features that Apple may have left out or restricts. Pretty clear cut difference if you ask me.

    Pirating is stealing jailbreaking is gaining root access to your device making it your own and being able to customize it and add features to it that apple does not allow. Once again pirating is scamming and ripping people off that work hard to develop apps for the app store, music, and even Cydia app or tweak developers. Pirating is not supported here

    If you don't agree with the rules mmi sets please go to another forum.

    Let's see... one is stealing something from someone, and the other is simply changing the way something looks. Yep, they're the same. I come in your house and steal your tv, or I redecorate my house. Yep, they're the same. I steal a painting off of your wall, or I buy a painting by you and I draw a mustache on it. Yep, they're the same.

    Jailbreaking has never been illegal. Apple can say whatever it wants, it does not write bills or sign them into law.

    There have never been any laws on the books against jailbreaking. Stealing someone's work is on the books as a crime. And now, jailbreaking is officially legal and Apple is continuing to make it difficult. It does have the right to make its firmware however it wants, but the first time Apple announces it has purposely stymied jailbreaking, court time!

    I don't know what the big deal is.
    Sooner or later there was going to be the same app piracy as on the iphone. And as macs aren't sandboxed there wasn't much apple could do about it.

    Cheers
