Their billions of dollars got them denied on a US court while trying to make iphone jailbreaking illegal...
Like that guy said a few posts ago. Apple might be a shady, controlling company. But once you jailbreak and remove those restrictions, there is no denying that NOTHING beats an apple device.

Exactly. There are more jailbreakers than you think. Last time a unteathered jailbreak came out there were 1 million downloads in the first week.

They have been having a war against jailbreaking since it started. They hate any competition and want to destroy all who go against them. Look at the ebook stores. Apple just banned all ebook apps with built in stores. Kindle, Kobo, Amazon all had in-app stores and because Apple had a huge cry and don't want competition they all had to remove their in-app stores.
Apple waste a lot of money trying to block jailbreaks. If they actually realised jailbreaking IS the reason why they sold so many iPhones and if they do completely block jailbreaking they will loose a lot of customers. I for one will NEVER upgrade if I can not jailbreak. If it ever does get blocked thats the day I get an Android.
Look at what Apple did with the Galaxy Tab. They put a lot of money to get it banned and why? Its their competition. Instead of making the iPad better they sue others and try to destroy them so they have no competition.
Not a friendly way to get customers but thats Apple for you. They are rude and don't care about others just like their fanboys.
Sorry, but we simply don't see the percentage of jailbreakers that the guys running jailbreak sites and announcing the download numbers see.
For our customer base it's less than 1/4 of 1 percent. The other developers that I talk to who track the same numbers see similar statistics. Apple's inside numbers appear to show very similar trends.
It's just not that large a community to impact sales of the device.
Ok every one was a news post about app update changes and now off topic as you have chosen to discuss other issues not related to the news story.
I have move it here where it belongs Also please be nice and thank you thewitt for the statement you are correct.
Guys please read our rules before you post

I have to agree with the other posts, without jail breaking I would have hated all my iPhones (2g 3G 4 ) and this iPad. In standard form I would have changed from my iPhone along time ago and almost certainly not bought this iPad. Jail breaking is a must.
