Apple "Over the last half a week, Apple has been hit with the largest mass-hacking incident in its history. And the perpetrators were the company's own users. Nearly seven million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners have cracked Apple's restrictions on their devices using the jailbreaking tool Evasi0n since the tool was released Monday morning, according to the latest count from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the app store for jailbroken devices known as Cydia. That makes the iOS-hacking app the fastest-adopted jailbreak software of all time, Freeman says." Because, of course, only nerds and geeks jailbreak. There's also a technical analysis of the jailbreak.

Ah, that old "we know what's best for you" line. Perhaps they need not make it easier, but they need not make it harder either./q]

Maybe you didn't read my whole post but I think I've kind of answered this. Considering how hard it is right now to jailbreak, I've still had ~10 people come up to me and ask me to fix their "broken" iPhone; where in broken means some problem with the jailbreak. Imagine how much that number would jump if it was easier.
