    Some features of technology are just because of trend of use. All industries feed off competitors, and everyone takes ideas from each other.
    While true, many tweaks were likely inspired from other platforms like you said, I do believe that there have been plenty of originally tweaks in JB land that do not have a direct analog elsewhere. Please don't sell those short.

    Don't be fooled. Just because your in a thread of people that love to jailbreak, does not mean that the JB scene is that big. Sure there are millions of Jb devices. But there are hundreds of million of devices in total.
    1) "Millions" isn't exactly a small number. 2) Of course you're going to have that kind of margin between jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices. But that is the wrong comparison to be making, given that the majority of Apple's iOS userbase is made of utterly non-technical users, the kind of people Apple has been catering to for years, so of course those people wouldn't know anything about jail breaking. What you should be comparing is devices owned by more technically inclined people. You'd probably find the percentage to be a lot higher.

    Here's an analogy: It's like with cars, where most people who buy a typical sedan would leave it stock, where as there's a certain crowd who would be more inclined to modify it (better tires, better flowing intake and exhaust, programmers to adjust transmission shift points and engine output, etc.) Sure, you could say the majority of the buyers don't modify it, while you could say the majority of the buyers who happen to like working on cars would modify it to varying degrees, though not all of them necessarily would.

    Your missing a very important word in my post "relative". 1 million is 1% of 100 million. So if your a company, who would you listen to 1% or 99%?

    Regardless of how large 1 million is my point is in relative to devices the number is small.

    Anyway I think apples moves have more to do with why people by other platforms, rather than what does the jailbreak community think. They see the customization android offers and the Crowd that appeals too.

    And one thing about your analogy that is a bit far fetched as a comparison is automotive manufactures don't market the ability to install after market parts (jailbreak tweak). They offer customization installed from the factory. In fact any customization beyond that of dealer voids your warranty.
