    What do you guys think? In my opinion its pretty obvious that Apple has used jailbreakers ideas/apps since 1.X.X. Lets go through the list. Please correct me if I'm wrong. (I'm getting these features from a post at Engadget or from just my findings)
    P.S. Some of these features will be available in OS 4.0

    AppStore = Installer

    User-defined wallpaper = SummerBoard (kinda)

    In-App SMS = QuickSMS or BiteSMS

    Bluetooth keyboard support = BTStack

    App folders = Categories

    Multi-tasking = ProSwitcher


    This was just a quick list keep posting new stuff and I'll add it.

    User defined wallpaper is a fairly obvious inclusion.
    In-App SMS is another obvious feature to include.
    People have wanted Bluetooth keyboards since the very start.
    I do agree that categories may have influenced their decision, but again, adding a similar, obvious feature is hardly copying.
    Again, people have been pressuring for multitasking since the start. They did not get the idea solely from Jailbreaking.

    But really, you think that they built iPhone OS with no intention of applications? And then they saw "hey! Those guys are making apps to run in the perfect environment that we just happened to include! We should do that!" LOL

    most of the things Apple has added in the 4.0 update have been requested since the beginning.

    i recond they just use this idea's to switch people off jailbreaking, which lets them get things they dont have. But updates dont come around so often. When they jailbreak, most likely they would stay jailbrocken. Apple are just trying to convert the ignorant users.

    Soon the only reason people will jailbreak is for [krabby patties]... I mean if they add themes.. There would be no point except piracy and unlocking. But I am for unlocking lol.
