    Just read about it. I'm guessing it applys to ipod touches as well. Wanted to get some opinions, and see if anyone else has heard about it.

    wow apple way to scare little kids. they can't do this. we paid for the device so we can do whatever our hearts desire to it.

    edit: mmitt your post wasn't there when i typed tis so by being scared im not referring to you.

    edit 2: how are they gonna catch you. its not like they have scanners to find jailbroken devices or apple employees are gonna look for people w/ iphones/touches and see if their jailbroken. and if they do try to look over your shoulder you either yell "stranger danger" and run away or throw it on the ground and say u dropped it and then start crying about it.

    Why can't they just leave us alone? We bought their product so why not just leave us alone?

    I can do without a jail break if this is actually official. Themes and emulators are NOT worth jail time and $2500...

    I think it's because ever since the jailbreak of 2.X, they have been losing alot of money via c*****d apps. Before on 1.X, there was nothing to lose out so they didn't care as much. Now they do.
