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.

It's crazy that people here are saying 7 million isn't a big number. That's certainly a big number whether that's the entire userbase, or just a tiny sliver of it. Find an area large enough to put 7 million people, have them all stand there, and take an aerial photo. Then look at that photo and try convincing everyone 7 million people is nothing. Good luck with that.
