Legal So, there I am enjoying a nice Gilmore Girls episode after a long day's work, and Engadget's iPhone application brings the good news: the US Library of Congress has added a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking or rooting mobile phones! This is a major blow to Apple, who actively tried to keep jailbreaking a criminal offence, and a major win for everyone who believes that the phone you buy is actually yours, and not the manufacturer's.

What a blow...

What a huge blow, should they just stop selling the iPhone or maybe close up shop for good? What a dumb headline.

Wait maybe Apple should do what Motorola did and just kill their iPhone when it detects any firmware tampering. Because Apple is the ultimate evil here, how could a Google or Linux product ever be so evil?
