Yes I know that Apple wants to be able to control everything. Hardware, software, apps, everthing. Because they want to be able to control the consumer experience and I thank Apple for doing that. They don't want to distribute porn, illegal content, malware, slow/buggy software, etc. and I have no problem with that. It is a business decision and a good one. BUT if people take it upon themselves to say "Yes I am willing to hack my possession to do with it what I want. I understand this may lead myself to a less than perfect user experience, but I will live with any consequences." Most ppl that would jb are more techy and understand what could happen and understand what they are doing. Apple isn't liable in the same sense for that user experience. I'm sure Apple spends a considerable amount of time and cost specifically for preventing people from being able to JB. Yes I understand some of the "fixes" are needed, because, for example, the PDF vulnerability is a potential exploit. I would think JB is the way Apple would be able to "have their cake and eat it too." By that I mean Apple gets to keep their strict control over the majority, but still is able to appease the techies because they can jb and have all the fun they want. Apple should stop devoting resources to breaking the jb process with every update and simply have a policy that any iDevice currently JB'd has a voided warranty. I don't see how that would be an issue.
