    If you think about the ipod touch 1g alot of people bought it showed their friends the jailbreak then alot more people bought it. Well why would he fix the exploit or hack because its just losing him money/business. It doesnt make sense

    Because he doesn't want people messing with his sh*t.

    Also, he didn't "fix" or "make" it.

    Hes not exactly losing sales. With jailbreaking comes installulous and that loses him money if he allows the jailbreak. Think about it some more.

    Also not everybody buys an ipod touch or iphone to jailbreak it.

    First, I highly doubt people aren't buying 2g Touchs because it can't be jailbroken.

    Second, and easily the most straight-forward answer, is that so people have to use the App Store...you know, the part where Apple gets 30% of every app downloaded?
    Hmmm, why would Steve want to make more money?

    Thats true but if he sold thirty iphone 2g's 8 gigs a piece or thirty apps when half of them are free he would make more money off of that. Or he could just take the apps from installer and cydia find a way to make them then put them on the app store like customize and everything else that was in there

    You know what Steve should do? Sell Winterboard for 25 bucks at the App Store. That would make him a lot of money.

    Well apparently, jailbreaking kind of promotes Piracy in a very oblique way. Same goes for the PSP, people might buy the handheld itself but if they mod it the gaming industry is they have nothing to worry about. Doesn't really matter for apple either. Alot of Ipod Touch users don't even know what jailbreaking is. Half of them actually buy their music from Itunes! Though the devs might not support piracy, it doesn't stop hundreds of people downloading them.


    But $7.99 for Monopoly, that's just bullcrap.

    Steve isent looseing money, usually a person (wants or gets) a ipod touch before knowing about jail break.

    Considering its ranked number #2 mp3 player to get for christmas, and everywhere I turn everyone is getting one, I highly doubt he is looseing cutomers.

    When Steve lets people jailbreak, he looses money, because then people can install apps, and upgrades for free. Also jailbreaks only pro is the fact it lets you customize, which really should be included, or atleast sold as a app.
