Apple Since interesting news that I'm actually knowledgeable about is still a little hard to come by, I have to work a little harder. This is something interesting to discuss: John Gruber, rather famous Apple blogger, is now arguing that Apple is in fact not fighting the jailbreaking community. Wait, what?

What you’re missing is the part where they tried as hard as they could to prevent jailbreaking _before_ the release of iOS4, but missed a hole that hackers found in the PDF viewer.

It’s not like Apple provide a doJailbreak (); API for those who want to. Hackers are having to rely on good old-fashioned programming flaws to get in, and it’s not without trying.

Apple don’t want jailbreaking—period. They will up the anté with the next hardware & software release.
