[citation][nom]Graham10[/nom]What's the point? - Less than one percent of users want to mess about with something that already works. It's like taking a brand new BMW and felling chuffed because you learnt to service it yourself. The days when everyone's PC would constantly be causing problems and getting stuff done took longer and longer are gone. Move on chaps and allow these new tools to enhance your life not take it over. And if you don't like the ecosystem then don't buy it.[/citation]
U dont get it, chap, its all about freedom of choice... including freedom to install whatever U want.
But, if U enjoy your Apple jail...
[citation][nom]lucyTd[/nom]I dont think YOU get it doc70...The apps are what make this device actually useful. Things are formatted to this form factor and make it way more productive as a multimedia device then if it had windows on it.Give it a whirl. You should have some hands on time before you preach![/citation]
You're the one NOT getting it, jailbreaking allows you to run pirated apps, it's the same as an xbox 360, do you think everyone who has a jailbroken device knows how to code in objective C and creates his or her own apps ? HA ! give me a break.
This is done so some clown on the street can sell you a CD holding 200 apps for 5 dollars. Jeez, how clueless can you be...

And you sir are a serious ahole. $5 for 200 apps or 2.5 cents per app. And I suppose those developers that do know how to program in C are happy to work hard to develop an app that some prick like you can pirate and give away for free?
I suppose you also think Adobe is ripping people off for programs like Photoshop and you feel justified in torrenting AudoCAD.
Now you haters make so much sense - you're just a bunch of crooks who probably collect welfare and think the world owes them a living. It's all so clear now.
My iphone is not jailbroken, and I do buy my apps at the appstore, I don't pirate them. Not sure about all the other weird stuff you said making any sense though, what's with Adobe ? I do know however that I don't appreciate you insulting me, but you're not making sense anyway so whatever.
In any case, you should take a look around your own streets, these things happen all the time, you're just not aware of them.
ericburnby, I guarentee those most of the worlds population would choose free over pay...especially unlocking phones. Why do you think iPhones are expensive?...I'm sure its half of the price to make it but also they need to make profit from those who unlock it.
and why bring up Adobe? What average Joe would spend $1000 on PS or any other program for personal use? To be honest I would spend that money on MJ \ computer part(s) - although mines practically top of the line AMD\ATI \ BEER
Not that I do those stuff just making a point on the person who cries that he gets to pay and others don't.
