Apple The internet is abuzz with the news that Apple intends to break iPhones containing third party applications. Unlocked phones are also likely to be victims of the next software update. While community reaction is generally negative, one blogger suggests sending an even stronger message to Apple by boycotting Apple on October 1. If you're running the Installer application, you may want to hold off on any iPhone firmware updates.

Won't Boycott them

I bought the phone knowing the limitations, the features - I have no need to unlock it - people are just itching to be dumb about their devices and they think that they should be able to play around with them anyway they want and modify them and then the company have to support these changes.

I don't agree with a majority of the complainers out there.

I don't agree with FunkyELF - I don't see myself as a sheep - I see myself as supporting Apple and their commitment to a great product. I like the iPod and the iPhone is a naturual cohesive extension of the iPod.

It has a great deal of functionality and usefullness and it could be better in some areas.

Bottom line is this - if you 'modify' your PC system, your iPod, your iPhone - and the company that supports issues a new update that may 'cripple' it, don't come crying to Apple - that is a sheep.

I bought it - I use it - and my iPhone will upgrade effortlessly when the new firmware patch comes out.

Haters need not apply.
