Everyone on this site is talking about it, but I have no clue what it is. Can anyone fill me in?
let me google that for you
Open your Web browser. Do this by double clicking on the icon on your desktop or in one of your control menus.
Type www.google.com into the address bar on top of the page. You'll see a page with "Google" in big, colorful letters on the top.
Advanced searches Select the type of search you want. You can search for Web pages, newsgroups, images, news, books, and videos, or you can choose Advanced Search for more complex searches.
Type your search in the rectangle that appears right under the word "Google". The blinking input cursor will already be in the search box, so just start typing. The default search is for Web pages. If you want to search just for Web pages, you can start typing in the search box as soon as you go to Google. For other kinds of searches, you will first need to click on the appropriate links.
Click "Search", "I'm feeling Lucky" or press Return on your keyboard. Clicking "Search" produces regular Google results whereas "I'm Feeling Lucky" takes you to the first search result. It is the page considered most relevant to your search terms. It will often be an official website. Pressing Enter or Return gives you the default search.
Look for your results Find the pages you are looking for, or modify your search for better results.
Take it a step further by learning Google search syntax.

A jailbreak is the act of breaking out of a chroot or jail in UNIX-like operating systems or bypassing digital rights management (DRM). It is a specific form of privilege escalation. In the context of the iPhone, it allows the user to run arbitrarily defined code or applications, bypassing Apple's code distribution mechanism (the iTunes App Store and the iTunes Application).
The iPhone and iPod touch have repeatedly been subject to jailbreaks, allowing the execution of arbitrary code, but have had those jailbreaks disabled by vendor updates. The iPod Touch/iPhone hacking community however, responds to the newest vendor updates by creating new ways to enable third party apps almost immediately.
The popularity of iPhone jailbreaking in turn popularized the term "jailbreak": for example, in early 2009, more Google-indexed Web pages mention the word in relation to the iPhone (3,140,000) than in any other context (e.g. prison escapes) (2,230,000). According to archive.org, the first DRM-related definition of the term jailbreak was added to the "Urban Dictionary" in December 2007 and referenced the recently released iPhone.
Jailbreaking is distinct from "unlocking". Unlocking is the process by which a mobile device is made compatible with telephone networks it was not specifically licensed to be used with.
@all the people who mentioned googling.
It's basically hacking Apple's default iPhone OS firmware , to be able to run unapproved apps and do things regular iPhones / iPod's aren't able to do
It basically means to remove the restrictions that apple create so you run applications that apple won't approve.
