    Sorry if this had already been posted.
    I think Apple is just trying to spread BS to prevent the jailbreaking. Their reasoning is stupid because they are just saying what's possible by jailbreaking. You know what else is possible? Macs being programed to do massive denial of service attacks or spread viruses or steal information. Just because it's possible it doesn't mean it will happen doesn't mean it will. Using Apple's logic we need to stop using Macs because it's possible that they can be programed to do something "bad".

    Apple furrows his brow and slams a heavy fist onto the table. His eyes gleam with a familiar hatred and bellows "No more shall we allow this atrocity to occur, no longer will the commonfolk be allowed access to third-party applications." Cautiously, Media approaches with his head hung low and hesitantly speaks.

    "Please mister, I don't see the detrimental effects that can occur whilst jailbreaking, perchance you are overreacting?"

    "OVERREACTING? OVERREACTING HUH?" Apple sputters in a fit of overreacting rage, "You think Shoop Da Woop apps are safe? They are not! They portray negative african-american stereotypes that lead children to DO HARD DRUGS!"

    Again, Media steps forward with the same bowed head. "Sir, you realize that is one app out of many, is that much better than fart apps in the iTunes app store?"

    With a large, stubby, threatening finger pointed directly at Media, Apple shakes with visible rage. "YOU! YOU ARE THE ONE THAT HAS BEEN PROMOTING JAILBREAKING HAVEN'T YOU?!"

    And then he chokes on his own drool and dies because I'm too lazy to finish the story because I don't know where I was going with this the end.
