    While it sucks, It's a business move. You have to look at it from that perspective also.

    We're still here though, so they obviously accomplished nothing that gave them an advantage.

    Oh come on Apple! Itís pretty obvious that itís not the ďiPhoneĒ that you have a problem with. Itís the ďmodĒ in the name. You arenít making other iPhone websites like everythingiphone change their name, are you?

    You know, Iíll wonder if modmyi... scuse me... modmyi could sue for prejudice or something if Apple doesnít go after every website with iPhone in their name.

    The fact is if Apple doesn't do everything in thier power to protect thier trademarks and patents it can and will bite them in the .... Apple later.

    Why so much hate and talk about suing? If you are here it is because you like Apple and the iPhone, all they asked was for the domain to be changed. Who cares??? Everything is back to normal now, you just have to change your bookmark... It is probably pressure from AT&T anyway...

    wow! easy there fanboys!!! i can't believe all the negativity towards apple. ironic, that everyone buys their device.

    you would have to own your own company or product to understand i guess. but they're just protecting their intellectual property. i can't believe all the "send letters with F bombs" to apple. that's just pure fanboy sensationalism.

    it's a name change. chill out people.

    Been here for a while - just asked a few questions so I'm not a newbie...

    This thread started as an acknowledgment of a letter received that this site was infringing on copyright (iphone name). The fact that everyone is going on and on saying that this website and its owners should rage against the machine is out of touch. There is nothing wrong with Apple protecting their brand. Just as if any of you had created something and then had another party come along and siphon off your name. Now I use this site and enjoy the ideas and links so I am not saying to shut it down. Just as Apple is not asking for it to be shut down. They just want THEIR content protected. THEIR pictures. THEIR name. They paid for it. They own it.

    Anyway... whether you like it or not - Apple is a billion dollar company.

    Just enjoy the fact that a site that shows you how to jail break and mod your phone exists!

    I think you're targeting the wrong crowd. It's not the fanboys that are complaining. It's the fanboys that say things like "it's only a name change."
    i can't believe all the negativity towards apple. ironic, that everyone buys their device.
    People are negative because the iPhone is the center of Apple's change of philosophy. Apple isn't the company that it sued... whoops... used to be.
    you would have to own your own company or product to understand i guess. but they're just protecting their intellectual property.
    Not true. This has zero to do with intellectual property. It's about their stance against modifications to iPhones. If it was truly about intellectual property, then they would have been going after every website that has apple, mac, ipod, iphone in their name. There are probably thousands of websites by now that Apple would have to target, and they aren't going to do that. They are only going to target websites that encourage behavior that is against Apple's new fascist philosophy.

    Again, it's not fanboys that "send letters with F bombs" to apple. Fanboyism is essentially people that protect and defend Apple to the death at all costs. If you want to look at a "fanboy reply", read yours.

    Kinda of figured this would happen sometime, it's nice all they demand is a name change. I think that this link is pretty damn funny. I would consider co-locating to a Sweden company haha..

    I love the responses that these guys give and publicly post about these million/billion $ companies threatening them.

    Hate to tell you that you are wrong, but, you are wrong. IT has 100% to do with intellectual property. If it was about their stance against modifications to the iphone, they would have had a cease and desist letter drawn up. Yes there are thousands of websites and for you to state that they are not going to ask for others to change their name is ludicrous.

    Fascism is hardly what Apple is doing. They are being more pejorative than anything.

    As far as fanboy behaviour - most of what is shown here is. That is a simple fact of a site that is all about geeks like us who want to mod the phone!

    Play nice.

    Oh and squirrel meat is now ok to eat in New Jersey again.

    Except they didn't have the legal right to do that. Modifying our iphones isn't illegal. And it's CERTAINLY not illegal to give out information on how to do it... free speech and free press and alla that.
    Yes there are thousands of websites and for you to state that they are not going to ask for others to change their name is ludicrous.
    Well, come back here in a week for your "I told you so." Better yet, meet me at www.everythingiFone.com in a week and tell me "I told you so." I'll be waiting patiently at www.everythingiPHone.com for you.

    Wikipedia has a great definition for fanboy:
    "fanboys are attributed with a sycophantic devotion to the creators and principles behind a work with which they are currently enthralled."

    So fanboys, by definition, don't mod their iphones. Fanboys do what Apple tells them to do, and they fight people that do mod their iphones.
    Play nice.
    Sorry if my reply was taken as not playing nice. I neglected to add a .

    So..

    Apple locked their system out from modders and third party developers.FACT symbian,uiq,wmobile all of these phones have an open system that you can program into.APPLE need to understand as we are the buyers of their products we demand more.I am not spending money on a simple Phone.Ok heres my lineup:n95,u990,k850,t mobile ameo,e90,p990.Because of this web site i bought an iphone and even tho it doesnt match in anyway the e90 or the ameo aka advantage it is my fave phone.If it wasnt for the hacked 1.1.1 then i would even bother looking at the damn thing.APPLE WAKE UP.
