Apple A Forbes article notices that while the iPad's reception from the public and the mainstream press has been overwhelmingly positive, the prevailing sentiment among some alpha geeks has been negative to the extreme. The conclusion, of course, is that these people aren't reacting to what the iPad is, but rather what it represents: a violation of the ethos of the personal computer. The author of the Forbes article concludes that much of the anti-iPad vitriol is hyperbole, and doesn't help advance the cause. It's a thought-provoking question.

"I would jailbreak even if it were illegal

Is it really illegal? I don't think so. Again it may vary country by country.

I think it will surely void the warranty, but isn't illegal (unless it is in ToS)
"

No, that is why David wrote "if it were illegal".
