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?

Some Jailbrakers may know what they are doing its the rest that are at risk, the ones that do it just to be cool or to say ner ner to Apple.

Any programmatic API to give root access is a security hole waiting to be exploited by the next trojan and its not just jailbrakers that will be hit, it'll be anyonewho downloads an App that abuses it before it gets spotted and pulled.
