    Seriously, why does Apple even care if we jailbreak our iPod touches and iPhones. We bought them, it's ours, we can do what we want with them. If we screw it up without warranty, that's our problem. Why just make tiny little firmware updates. And the firmware updates. They fixed 3 little bugs in iPhone OS 3.1.3, and fixed the jailbreak. If there was no jailbreak, I bet you any money they wouldn't have fixed the bugs in a tiny firmware update. So that's my rant, tell me what you think? Why should they care?

    People making money off of something they made, so what? Why aren't the makers of touch-screen devices mad?

    There trying to get as close to a Monopoly as possible without getting in trouble with the government. They want to be making SOME money off other people's acompishments. Like they take 30% profits from developers. That's pretty nice income, based on ALLL THE FREAKING APPS THEY SELL. Honestly, they don't want to not make any money.

    Cydia Store/Piracy takes away from profit. So, they care.

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a distribution network that doesn't charge for hosting/promotion/sales.

    The thing is- before piracy and the Cydia Store, Apple was still against it. Then it made no sense. Now it does.
