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?

Apple could take more technical measures to discourage jailbreaking.
They don't push upgrades to devices. They allow continued use of the App Store and push notifications with older (vulnerable) OS versions and on jailbroken devices. iTunes continues to sync with devices not running the latest available firmware..

Of course they don't !
1/How could they technically push updates ?
2/What about those that don't have a proper internet connection at home ?
3/What would you think of a brand who forces people to download 30MB regularly over their old internet connection in order to continue to use their product ?
