Apple As Engadget notes, almost 1 million people jailbroke their iOS device this weekend, after the release of Abstinthe 2.0. Considering I'm actually hearing more and more non-techie users talk about jailbreaking, this doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

Ideology will only get you so far. At the end of the day, it is (and always has been) about getting shit done. And let's face it, iOS has the bigger and more varied selection of apps right now, unfortunately.


Does that mean you use Windows on your laptop or desktop because it has the bigger and more varied selections of software right now, unfortunately?

I use Windows on my MacBook Pro because Visual Studio, IIS and MS SQL Server only works with Windows. I use it in VirtualBox btw, but it's still Windows..

I guess you only use them due to work, and that's cool, I've been "forced" to use / support certain technologies too.

Right now I "have" to have Windows running in a virtual app just to make sure IE is supported. If I could get IE9 running in Wine I would be very happy, but so far that just doesn't seem to work (if anyone has that working, let me know).

I like MS SQL Server by the way...
