    Meh, even if they do get this accepted, all we need to do is apply a few patches and block them out [​IMG]

    (I realise its not that simple, but thats just a basic description xD)

    If i recall some other site discussed this as not a jailbreak detector. But a way to detect if the user IS indeed you and not a theif [​IMG]

    Meh. They made jailbreaking legal. I highly doubt they'll let Apple pull this. And if they do, then it's still a win, because then the iPhone/Pod'll dropp quite a bit, and people will realize that there IS better phones/media players then it.

    Apple is just saying 'We're getting to the core of our users, rooting out the worms who are eating the profit from us'

    Fucking Apple, the private app makers make a renovation app, apple calls it illegal and a year later comes out with the exact same with and calls it "Revolutionary".

    Jailbreaking may be legal but it still violates their EULA. They're going to fight it.
    But breaking basic human rights to do that is a no no, not when jailbreaking is lawful.
    Why the fuck do you think the police have to get WARRANTS?

    I edited it since no one can be bothered to read the article. (this is implying people who said it was only about stolen iphones)

    Then the EULA is unenforceable and possibly illegal (?). Its like the Driving Theory practice stuff I had said I wasn't allowed to pass or sell it on. F- You, you can't tell me I can't do that!
    Imo this is not about jailbreaking but about a service to help find stolen iPhones. Its still highly dubious and unlikely to be deemed legal.

    you can put whatever you want in a EULA, its up to the user if he/she agrees to it. its a contract, you can't do shit if you've agreed to it.

    Oh really? What if I make a 10 page EULA and stick in the middle "By signing this document you agree to allow Apple to murder your families."

    And so that's that? The user can't do anything about it? Yeah right. The EULA is overridden by law when they conflict. Duh.

    uhh only because of how the system works, depending on what the agreement was on, one could fight how silly the whole thing is. but a contract is a contract, remember that whole gamestation stealing peoples souls? they were actually liable to do that.
