    so in a way, jailbreakers are competing against other phones using the iphone as a vehicle while apple gets the money. sweet.

    Apples owes a lot of its success related to ipod touches to the Dev team and other hackers alike. Who wants to send a medal to the Dev team?

    Am I the only one that remembers that Apple outright took the page dots design from the early 1.1.1 SummerBoard and put it into 1.1.3? They've taken little details from us since the very beginning.

    There are so many examples
    -Categories became folders
    -Summerboard became pages on Spingboard
    -MusicControls in a way became part of backgrounding music apps
    -Cycorder became a Video Camera
    -Circuitous is similar to the Fast App switcher
    -AttachmentSaver became part of the Universal Documents
    -Clippy became Copy and Paste
    -and what not

    And many Cydia apps found their way into the AppStore

    Since Jailbreaking is legal now... wouldnt it be funny if the dev-team an the other dev would try to get some of theire work patented? ^^

    People actually think that Aplle 'got the idea' of the App Store from installer?
