    Apple has a history of "borrowing ideas" from its very start. Most famous is the mouse interface. If their lawyers can cover it they'll take. Isn't it the American way?

    tsk :P

    Also, I read on engadget that he doesn't seem to be pursuing the matter. Smart choice probably, given the size of Apple's legal team. Plus if they didn't use his code, the feature in itself is too much of a no-brainer to be lawsuit worthy.

    Quote: Hughes went on to tell The Register that he was "surprised" by the similarities, but he hasn't offered any indication that he plans to push the issue any further.

    Ponder this, iOS5 can push updates (patches) down automatically suppose they don't offer an option to opt out (that is the end user has no control over them) that should be interesting for jb devices.

    I would think that legally they have to have an option to have automatic updates on or off. I know on my pc I can turn it off. The iPad is my property, it was not subsidized in any way so they would have no right to change my device without my permission. I think there would be a huge class action suit if they did not give you the option of disabling it. When I heard about the over the air updates that was the same question that came to my mind... will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Personally I would take apple to court.. It's not necessarily about winning or losing it is to tarnish apples "image" with regular non thinking folks ...

    "I" products are superior to others for one good reason. Itsvall the same crap just different packaging. Remember how cheesy and crappy the first 3 gens of iPods were? If someone dumps this much money on to one type of product they better have e best or they are just wasting money.

    Even then I products are only superior because the amount of people who use them has created an "I" economy. The 3rd party companies should be allowed to use this economic market that has been created, the American way. Apple came out with Netscape for use on microsofts software, so why can't another company come out with a proper mobile browser not the crap safari that comes on it, I know there are approved browsers without jail breaking, but they are still crap. As I remember this I the exact reason why apple took microsoft to court over their monopoly... Apple execs should be tarred and feathered for that great injustice. Or the government should sue apple for wasting our tax dollar for them to only do the same thing 20 years later. Microsoft needs to play devils advocate and come out with a browser that instantly jailbreaks your phone. I would support that. Now I hope it was a joke when the rumors of the American I tax were spreading, but in all reality I can wholly understand why the governemnt would tax the crap out of I products

    Some day I want to read a rant about how other people are intelligent, thoughtful, and well informed, but still wrong because of fact, fact fact, argument, conclusion.

    Ok, technically that would not be a rant.

    And those people deserve to get paid because they worked hard on whatever it is.

    From everything I've read the mainstream jailbreak community is very anti-pirate. After all, they are just developers who want to do more with the device than Apple allows. That does not mean they don't care about getting paid, or watching other people get ripped off.
