You know, I get kinda annoyed with "honest" news sites reporting hacking and piracy stuff. It just gives it more attention then it deserves and gets people who might never had known about it informed.

I mean take Jailbreaking... Everyone now nows about it but if News outlets never talked about it and only the underground channels had buzz about it then the common joe would never know about it.

Jailbreaking is awesome for the average Joe!

Unless you work for AT&T.

Not really. We don't care for jailbreaking because very few actually use it to unlock the device. I actually got a a few laughs when customers come in with bricked devices claiming they don't know what happened.

CST: "I just woke up this morning and my phone was on the restore screen and iTunes wont restore it."
