Apple The iPhone, Apple's current cash cow and best selling cellular phone in the United States, is a completely closed phone in that only applications from the App Store can be installed on the phone. However, by jailbreaking the iPhone you can install applications from whatever source you want, which might be desirable if an application you want isn't allowed into the App Store by Apple. The Cupertino company has never had an official stance on jailbeaking, but this has now changed: according to them, it's a breach of copyright.

Need I say more?

It is like saying I can't put a new motor in my car!

Yes, in certain countries, like my own, you can't change/tune the engine in your own car... It's an illegal action and your car will not pass annual inspection... :S
