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?

There was a flaw in the bootloader of the first iphone, 3G and early 3GS models which could also be used to jailbreak the phones, but only if you had a physical USB connection to the phone...

They should take a similar approach to it that google did with the nexus one, you can jailbreak the phone if you have the ability to physically connect a computer to it, and by doing so you erase any data already on the phone and lose the ability to receive support from apple.
