And we now go live to Apple v Corellium, where the iTitan is still lobbing copyright fireballs at the virtual iPhone upstart

Re: I'm over the top

Interesting you use the word "negligent". To me, crypto locking an OS to force people into using the Apple App Store, then taking no responsibility for any loss or theft of data that happens anyway inside Apple's tightly controlled ecosystem is negligent. In fact, doesn't the tight locking make Apple the publisher, as in they're technically legally responsible for what happens regardless of any (illegal) EULA they tried to push on the user?

Not that the other company is doing the right thing either, they're in pretty clear copyright violation on a use that (AFAICS) does not fall into a fair dealing type exception.

Simple solution? Don't buy or use iCrap!
