    Does this mean that the hacking section will have to be shut down?

    No. Just means everyone needs to add a line to their posts. "By the way, I'm in Canada."

    The article seems to indicate it never has been legal? And what has Digital Content Management got to do with jailbreaking anyway? Americans!

    Mods, do you think that ruling will actually have any impact to the development of jb tools?

    Gzoladz I doubt it will impact it one bit since the only thing that article states is something that was technically already in place but not specifically spelled out.

    Plus, if you have the cellular version of the iPad, you can make the argument that it meets the same condition as the iPhone, since it has a cellular radio, a SIM, a phone number assigned to the device and the ability to place and receive calls over the cellular radio.
    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    To paraphrase that old saying, "once jailbreak is outlawed, only outlaws will have freedom". (Stay tuned, for soldering iron is also about to become designated as a terrorist weapon, banned for domestic use, in the future ... semi-sarcasm mode now off.)

    On a semi-related note... I often wonder why The Community (be it iStuff or elsewhere) doesn't utilize the Corporate PR Weapons of Newspeak and Political Correctness in the language... thus, for example, profoundly saying something like "enhanced usability tweak", "improved user experience", "usability enhancement" etc. instead of "jailbreak" (and, of course, deprecating the latter word).

    I for one couldn't care less if it were legal or not.
