MinceR it must be fun to pay $100 for something that should be free Apr 21 21:01
Balrog it does remove the restrictions of everything being proprietary (third party apps available) and controlled (you can jailbreak) Apr 21 21:01
Balrog MinceR: the $100 also gives you the ability to sell apps in the store Apr 21 21:01
MinceR what if i don’t want to sell apps? Apr 21 21:02
Balrog then jailbreak Apr 21 21:02
MinceR ok, my fault for expecting reason from apple fanboys Apr 21 21:02
MinceR they’d pay $100 for a piece of turd if it had an apple logo on it Apr 21 21:02
Balrog it’s easy enough … and I don’t see how they can cry DMCA when unlocking is legal under DMCA and you must jailbreak to unlock Apr 21 21:02
