Oh good God 2
Don't panic, it is only graffiti perpetrated by the "anything Apple = very bad, must bitch and moan about it" camp. They have little else to do apart from post anonymously. These are the same wild-eyed people you can find on any day of the week at Speakers Corner, ranting their usual mantra. What they cannot stand is anyone having anything or opinion that does not match their tiny little world. So all they can do is graffiti all and any article published anywhere. Freud could probably have written an entire book on the psychology behind these poor inepts.
I find the Jailbreak/Gaolbreak (the 'Merikans will never get that) all way too funny for words. Apple need to learn that the iPhone will be broken into just on a matter of principle if nothing else. The people who do this will continue to do so for as long as Apple make the challenge. They can embed all many of technologies in the successive generations of iPhone and iPod Touch, each will in turn be Jailbroken.
Think about it, Apple, all this Jailbreaking is being done for entirely no money at all. For zero commercial gain. You threw the gauntlet down and quite a few picked it up and chucked it right back at you. Gawd bless them all, each and every one of them. While I have not Jailbroken my iPhone I 101% endorse the actions of the Jailbreak authors. Because I firmly believe that Apple have, in the way in which they have sold the iPhone, completely missed the public's reaction.
Apple would have been much better off selling the iPhone as a completely SIM-free device, usable on any network in the world. Then they could have formed an alliance with the likes of O2 to sell an iPhone+ package as O2 have it now. I, for one, would have bought into the iPhone+ as I see the practical value to me - yes it isn't suited to everyone. That would leave the market wide open for Apple to have their iPhones on every network in the world, legitimately and without all of this Jailbreaking nonsense.
Not much of an IT angle to this story however.
