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?

I own a jailbroked (jailbroken?) iPhone 2G. I had to Jailbreak it since day one as its only supposed to work on AT&T and i'm using it in Saudi, Bahrain, etc.

I have to say i never felt apple put that much effort into preventing the phone from being jailbroken as i've updated my phone over the years. If they were *that* keen on it they would have released far more "security updates"

Its worth noting though if jail beaking were very easy far far more people would be running copied App Store apps. This would hurt developers more than anyone...

Gruber is an apple zealot, but he generally calls it as he sees it. And I agree that Apple didn't really try that hard to stop Jailbreaking.
