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?

Agreed.

There will always be legitimate reasons to implement some features/functions/etc. in software versus hardware. One without the other is far less interesting and functional. You can easily make hardware more flexible with software and make software faster or more secure with hardware (just a couple examples). Overlap is a good thing but can also lead to abuse or problems.

To state that one has to be impervious to changes in the other is downright shortsighted and reeks of ignorance.
