Sorry if this is the wrong place for this thread, but I find I get the best discussions in this thread. Take a look at this: http://techland.com/2010/08/23/apple-plans-to-remotely-kill-your-iphone-if-its-jailbroken In case you can't see, Apple plans to file a patent to remotely kill iPods, iPhones, and iPads that are jailbroken. As an owner of a jailbroken iPod, I'm quite surprised. After all, I was under the impression that I owned the iPod, and that it was my property. Finding out that it's not really, that Apple still retains enough ownership to SHUT IT DOWN PERMANENTLY shocked me. And if they do this, I'll either sue them for unlawful loss of property or... I don't know what.
