    I had always heard about jailbreaking and the cool stuff you have access to when you jailbreak.
    I did the jailbreak thing on my iphone and all I have on it is cydia. I have seen nothing that I would want from jailbrreaking. The only thing was flash and that didn't work so question: do I just delete cydia now to get rid of the jailbreaking experiment?

    Well, how would you call it if when you wanted to see a movie or hear some music on your computer you would need to download it through the computer of your neighbour? Or if someone sold you a car but you would never be allowed to fiddle with the radio or the air-conditioning (only the mechanic is allowed to do it). Same thing.

    I'm not going to split hairs on this subject and get into a debate on non-JB vs JB....alot of people assume that we jailbreak to find "free" apps/games....totally not true...but here are the links to the demo vids for the apps I previously mentioned.
    But I jailbreak to:
    Have multiple signature's for emails ~ [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mOHF249HiQ"]MailEnhancer[/ame]

    Create/password protect photo albums within the native photo app ~ [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeDz8vxxjhc"]photoalbums+[/ame]

    To be able to have live move-able widgets for the lock screen ~ [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89y_i_rFiAo"]smartscreen[/ame]

    Sorry...I only wanted to insert links to the vids instead of embedding them...no other way...that I could find.
    The above PAID apps have been developed to look and feel as if they should be in iOS by default.
    I'm sure apple monitors forums and the JB community for potential idea's for future updates.

    So if you're watching Mr. Jobs......take note! ;)

    I'm afraid I don't get your first analogy at all. I do understand your second one but that seems pretty extreme to me. For me it's more like they sell you the car but you're only allowed to use the manufacturers parts/service or those that they've specifically endorsed. Given the nature of this particular item that's not a hardship for me but it apparently is for others.

    I think you may be mistaken about what the iPad is. The Playbook, Xoom, GalaxyTab forums are on the other side of the Internet.

    Not a single thing here that makes me think ooohhh I just gotta go out and jailbreak right now. As a matter of fact it seems like a whole lot of hyped up minor tweakage for not much payout.

    Multiple e-mail signatures? Meh. Not something that matters much to me and I'll bet a lot of others folks feel the same. Widgets on the lock screen? Again, way low on my priorities of gotta-haves. And I don't use my iPad for photos so albums don't even hit my radar.

    Sorry but it'll take a whole lot more convincing than this to make me even consider JBing. Again, if I were a younger man with more time on my hands I might think about it but for now I'll happily use my Ipad the way it comes out of the box.

    I had my iPad jailbroken...it was more work than it was worth...anytime there is an update you have the choice of losing your jailbreak and all your apps and settings or just not update causing other problems....or you can update than wait for the next jailbreak and then have to redo everything...or you can wait till the next jailbreak and have to redo everything....def not worth it.
