Apple The discussion around whether or not jailbreaking iPhones should be exempt from the DMCA has just reached a level of ridiculousness that words can't really describe any longer. As some of you might know, Apple and the Electronic Frontier Foundation are in a tussle with one another over whether or not the US Copyright Office should put an exemption in the DMCA allowing the jailbreaking of iPhones. Apple's reasoning for why no exemption should be made is rather... Over-the-top.

Sorry, this isn't about what the iphone can or can't do. It's about the business practice of Apple Inc.

Your entire post is about people not researching enough. What about those who're tired of getting *screwed* over and over, about not being able to do as they want, with the hardware they bought? Like apple not approving their google voip application, for instance? Over the past 12-18 months there's been TOO many of these instances to keep apple's reputation over the water.
