    Someone should keep a running tally of this going back to other iOS releases (like when WiFi sync was "poached" um, borrowed) and then attempt a guesstimate of the dollars that would be had by said Dev based on sales of devices that included "his/her" borrowed app/feature/function.

    PS Don't mean to give the likes of Chpwn agita in seeing these "lost sales" numbers and would be the first in line to say "come on Tim, this aint 1984 and you aren't "evil" CUT A CHECK! Some of that $5 billion should be directed elsewhere. Sayin...

    it's hard to say some of these items were "borrowed" when they were rather obvious.
    Your statement just makes Apple look worse. If they are such obvious no-brainers, shame on Apple for not giving them to us sooner.

    As for facetime over cell, shame on Apple for allowing the carriers enough time to completely kill unlimited data plans before finally enabling it. Go ahead, burn through your limited data plan. They don't care now, in fact, they WANT you to so that they can get more money from you.

    SBSettings, 5 icon dock, quick reply and blacklist for SMS (same as iRealSMS) and I probably wouldn't want to jailbreak anymore. Although I'm liking the customisation with Ayecon over standard.

    Right.

    When Apple does things that are already been done, it's called "obvious" or "borrowing". But when someone else implements what Apple has done, it's called stealing.

    Don't think I would give up my jailbreak unless winterboard, SBSettings, snowcover, activator and swipe selection were built into an iOS. Also released today in the bigboss repo (before the keynote) was PocketSafari (save safari pages to pocket); another feature used in iOS 6 (kind of).

    Before anyone comments, I'm not suggesting apple stole this and decided to include it last minute, I just thought it was a weird coincidence!

    I think the more amazing thing is the features the jailbreak community has that Apple has yet to adopt.

    One of these for me is the 'ShowCase' tweak for the keyboard. Another totally logical one is 'NoNewsIsGoodNews' aka hide the stupid Newsstand icon.

    Otherwise, SBSettings is one that always comes up. For me they've done some of this with the multi-tasking but switching off Wi-Fi, going to Airport mode and more right from the Notification Center makes a lot of sense.

    Still missing something similar to the new Razor's "Smart Action" which is greatly needed! Passbook is a dumb, worthless upgrade.

    As much as I LOVE Jailbreaking, I look forward to the day I dont have to. Not sure if that day will ever come though.

    Did anyone notice the "Alarm with music" on one of the screen shots. Thats a cool native feature being added.

    I still need my Intelliscreen X and Infinifolders; those are two I feel like are an absolute necessity on the iPhone.

    Did apple get permission from the cydia developers to use their ideas? why is no one suing them for rehashing an original idea, which is now taking money of those developers pockets. HEY APPLE, LEARN TO INNOVATE AND STOP COPYING OTHER PEOPLES USEFUL IDEAS.

    Selling of Beta slots is not allowed anymore. This is only warning.

    If I just had an easy switch for Bluetooth I'd never jailbreak again.
