Pls think first...
"If jailbreaking your idevice is LEGAL. then lcoking them in the first place should be illegal."
Unfastening my case is legal. Does that mean fastening it is illegal?
Modifying my Mac is legal - even if it means modifying the case. Does that mean that providing an unmodified Mac in an unmodified case is illegal?
And about a thousand other valid analogies.
I presume the upper-case rant was followed by wiping of spittle from the screen.
In summary, I've never experienced any nasties in Mac OSX. I've seen lots in Windows' various incarnations. I'm quite happy that my iPhone only loads apps from the app store. I'm not sufficiently paranoid/outraged/insecure that I feel the need - or any just cause - to rant in a highly exaggerated manner about 1984, fascist control, or any of the other more colourful phrases found on any Reg forum which mentions the iPhone.
If you don't like the way the iPhone operates, then buy something else - or is common sense anathema to the rabid anti-Cupertino mob these days?
Hell, attacking (your own) Dell PC with a sledgehammer is perfectly legal (and may even be common sense)...
Is that nice Mr Michael the Son of Satan because he supplies un-hammered Dells?
