Apple "I think that Apple could be just as strong and good and be open, but how can you challenge it when a company is making that much money?", Wozniak told a crowd in Sydney, according to ITNews. They'd score so many brownie points the internet would explode.

MOS6510,

"If you allow people, most of which aren't technical savvy, to install whatever they want on a class of devices that's currently targeted by cyber criminals an increasing number of users will experience problems and/or become victims. It would destroy the image of the device, in this case the iPhone, of being 'safe' and 'secure', despite if it really is."

That's an excuse apple may use to appease the masses, but it won't fly here. There's no technical reason apple can't make a secure platform for non-technical owners without forcefully jailing the owners who'd like control over apps they install. Regardless of what you say, prohibiting all owners from accessing their devices isn't about security, it's about control.
