Apple May Brick Jailbroken iPhones -- InformationWeek. Excuse me; but, I thought that last week's decision that iPhone users had a right to jailbreak their iPhones and that such activity did not violate the DMCA was a ruling that would propel Apple to accept the idea that its users wanted the right to use their phones as they saw fit. I don't think anyone would complain if Apple argued that such action violated the warranty, and refused to service such activity. However, threatening to cut off access to jailbroken phones is going a bit far, don't you think? Those of you who have accused me of being an Apple hater are wrong; however, I reserve the right to complain about corporate action that is, IMHO, wrong-headed. This is one more reason why open-sourced Android phones have pulled ahead of Apple in the smart phone wars.
