Apple Waves Its Finger To JailBreaking
I have said it once and I will say it again. Apple thrives on keeping its system proprietary and the basics of basic for its iDevices. Perhaps this is why they sell so much product to the consumer world. Many people like simplistic functions and can care less about the extras. Most outside my circle of geeks tells me that they simply just want to be able to make a phone call. If this is the case then why not get a flip phone? It is because the phone was made by apple, a popular buzz word. Let me not forget the die-hard Apple Heads that swears by the iDevices and refer to these devices as "sexy". There is nothing wrong with that either but we have yet to mention about a breed of Apple Outcasts that is much like the die-hard Apple Heads but refused to settle in the seat we call the "proprietary box". These jail-birds drag their cups back and forth on the bars until a jailbreak comes along that would set them free into the wilderness to do as they will.
The term Jail-Breaking is to overriding the software limitations on the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad designed to preclude the use of applications beyond control from the device's manufacturer. There are many tools around the internet to perform this act of freeing a device from an iOS hell but this is not what Apple wants for the cult. Because of this, Apple will now be censoring the word "JailBreak" in its iTunes Store. This will apply to everything including apps, songs, albums, podcast episodes, and iTunes U episodes. The giant is trying to discourage owners from jailbreaking their own devices, but unfortunately cannot stop a user from making a "long-distance" call (the internet) for a little help. This makes the prior pointless. Perhaps they should offer an official application VIA the iTunes software that would allow someone to do so if they would like. They love to make money on everything. Why not create one and call it "iGiveup".
