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.

Well, yeah, it's hard to argue that.

It is strange that iOS users update so fast, yet so many never do. I recently upgraded someone's 3GS from iOS 4 to 6. Upgrading another one right now. This time from 6.0.1 to 6.1 though.

My guess is a lot of people never hook them up to iTunes or ignore OTA update notifications.
