    I didn't see this posted elsewhere yet, but here it is at TUAW

    See the rest of the article at the link above. Apple seems real serious about the iPod touch hacking.

    Is Apple the new Sony?

    I wonder why they are doing this. I'm willing to bet there is a specific reason they don't want these hackers doing it. Other than adding apps to the touch. I just have no idea what it would be.

    On a side note, when the thought of apple first releasing an iphone, i thought they would never limit its uses. Now the phone has crippled bluetooth and inablility to write to the drive......the list goes on and on.

    I'm not complaining...I'm just curious as to why!

    Hmmmm, maybe they really DO want to keep ipods/iphones safe...


    or... probably not. Darn it, we bought the ipod touch so we wouldn't have to get AT&T, let us be!

    This is exactly why I didn't go with the iPhone and hope that it would continue to function in a "jailbreak" or "sim unlock" state.

    Engadget carried a story a while back in which Apple warned people with sim-unlocked iPhones that future updates/patches might render their iPhone unuseable and that any sim-unlock/jailbreak activity could be grounds for loss of warranty coverage.

    Here's to the crazy ones, who use the applications that we tell them to.

    Is this the same Steve Jobs that got his career started as a tinkerer? What gives?

    1) Theres a iPod Touch Dev wiki????
    2) If Apple chooses to take a Sony view on the hacks or dosent do all these things officially themselves then they will just get pwned! Like Sony.
