Apple Since interesting news that I'm actually knowledgeable about is still a little hard to come by, I have to work a little harder. This is something interesting to discuss: John Gruber, rather famous Apple blogger, is now arguing that Apple is in fact not fighting the jailbreaking community. Wait, what?

Ah, but in Thom's reality distorted field, closing security holes is fighting against jailbreakers that exploit them. Since you can't jailbreak a phone without exploiting a security hole, fixing security holes is a bad thing for Apple to do.

Maybe one day he will point out all jailbreakers Apple has taken to court and flung in jail.

Well, your username "macUser" tells scores how much you are obsessed with Apple. This tells us the strength of Apple's Reality Distortion Field.

So it is natural, you would speak against anyone who is against Apple

Just because he likes Macs does not mean that he is an ignorant Apple fanboy. I know several people who use Mac computers but have no intentions of ever buying any iOS device. And a person's username should not matter is discussion of their ideas.

But quite obviously, he is a troll and didn't read the article

Troll.

How about you read the article? Namely, the part where I said fixing these holes is NOT proof for the fight against jailbreaking?

Thom, you're the one trolling flamebait.

To date, jailbreakers exploit security vulnerabilities. Patch the holes and suddenly you're fighting jailbreakers?

Just point out all of the jailbreakers Apple has fought. You can't because there aren't any. Of course, I expect you to ignore that fact.
