    I'm worried.
    What can seem a nice feature is something
    really dangerous.
    Not allowing background processes
    and forcing everything to pass thru the
    Apple Push Notification Server
    is something Orwell already imagined.
    Think about all your data
    flowing through Apple and you will start
    to get the big picture.
    Add to that mobileme, another big brother
    keeping everything about you.
    Now, this would be nice if it were an optional
    feature. But it's not.
    It's the only way.
    With the iPhone, Apple is showing they
    want to keep control of everything.
    I hope the industry will take a different
    path and won't emulate them.
    Every day I'm getting more interested
    in google android and more open softwares/firmwares.

    Blackberry is doing this for years.

    The difference is that with BB you can be sure that everything is secured: look at RIM's position against India's request to hand to their intelligence agency a master key. They will prefer losing one of the booming IT-T markets than take a worldwide credibility hit.

    I am not preaching ethics here: blackberry users care about their sensitive data, whereas iPhone's users will care mostly about the integration of their online experience...or something in between.

    I am more worried that they will embed some re-activation on every connection to the server cloud. BB is doing this, and with every restart of your device, the system performs a checkup that verifies software integrity. If apple does this, it will be one more block in jailbreaking the 3G...

    BTW: these might be the last days one can get a jailbreakable/simfree iPhone. Soon inventories will dry completely..

    While it is interesting that zibri is worried, I dont believe that anything is un-hackable/un-jailbreakable. There seems to always be a way past a barrier, like this.

    we dont know yet, we all need to wait until it comes out to start thinking about jailbreaking it and such. I bet that it will take a month or two but it will be jailbroken.
