    So I went to the Apple store in Ardmore, Pa to pick up a ip4 and while I was waiting I picked up one of the display ip4s. I immediately noticed an app on the phone called Cydia. I had never seen a jail broken iPhone before but I have heard the name Cydia associated with JBing, but I assumed the cydia app on the display phone was something legit. I asked one of the geniuses if the phones were jailbroken because several of the phones had the cydia app on them. He scoffed and said of course they're not jail broken. Then another genius told me that they were indeed jail broken and proceeded to remove them all from the display.

    I'm sure similar encounters are happening all over the world right now. It's just kids having a laugh at the employees' expense.

    I was at the Apple Store yesterday in Sydney. Every one was just about JB'd. Animated backgrounds, custom icons, alongside slow as molasses iPhone 4's, crashing apps, and horrible looking themes.

    yes many are jailbroken people go in there just to do it because they can, its like when i go in the apple store and go to one or to macs and invert the screens using control,option,command,8. then watch to see if the guys can fix it. ive only done it twice i know the guy that works there so i fid it funny. but jailbreaking them goes to far they have to a lot to fix them.

    As said just people mocking apple for this security hole, literally typing jailbreakme into safari installs cydia no questions asked. I did it today to test it, but ended up restoring because I like the default theme.

    Not 100% on your sarcasm...are you agreeing with me?

    What I mean was that THOSE particular phones which have been messed around with for giggles were messed up. Just like you can have highly configured smooth OS X, you can also have a bogged down one.

    We all can. The post was likely referring to Apple blocking that site from being accessed from with the Apple store.

    What a concept. All those iPhones are on the Apple Store's wifi network...so just block the site. Smart people will turn off wifi and then go to the website but still.

    they would give you a pin, that looked like this..


    then they would proceed to tell you that you can never own an Apple product again, and most likely make a mockery of you on their website. You think they did a good job making PC look bad? Just wait until SJ gets his hands on you, it will make it seem like the Mac vs PC ads made the PC look better. It will probably involve any of the following, and not exactly in this order....monkey sex, the Baltimore Oriels, reverse oreo's, tasmanian devil, el chupacabra, bad carne asada, mad cow disease, old pedophiles, mother nature, rocks with cocks, meat loaf (and i'm not talking about the food or the singer / actor), wild fires, monkeys with guns, jungle bunnies, post-apocalpyse scenario, the horror.... the horror...., napalm, cooties, screaming teenage girls, civilian outrages, dunlop, crappy music, heart attacks, starvation, tsunamis in the desert, "thats what she said" type things, hitler reincarnation, WWIII, jeff gordon, Nazi's regaining power, the list is endless....be warned

    or maybe they'll just politely ask you to leave, and still give you the pin for being such a good sport....
