    I got the latest issue of the UK Apple magazine Mac Format yesturday and inside someone had written a letter to them asking why they didnt talk about jailbreaking and unofficial apps and they responded saying that it wasent supported by Apple and they didnt want people damaging their iPods or iPhones and blaming them... Only fair, but later in that issue there was a article about Hackintoshes!!!

    That article has some funny stuff in it, too, a OSx86 user said "It has no IDE drivers, it dosent play sound, but its better than using Windows!" :rolleyes:

    Sorry the pictures suck, I had to take them on my crappy old phone as I have no scanner. :(

    technically they really aren't that hypocritical. Hacking an iPhone/iPod could result in a bricked piece of Apple hardware. A Hackintosh is a collection of commodity parts that are made to run OS X. I don't know, it's maybe a small distinction, but a pretty clear one to me.

    Both hacking an iPhone and using OSX on non Apple hardware are violations on Apple terms of use surely?

    Yes, but their reasons for not showing how to hack an iphone have more to do not wanting to be liable if someone bricks their phone than a violation of terms with Apple. At least that how I am reading it.
