You almost sound happy that your pro-Apple world is being compromised by these people.

How is it being compromised? I think the lockout of 3rd party applications is retarded. I also think it sucks the phone is locked to AT&T even though I'm on AT&T.

I like Apple products, sure. But I don't like them having a strangle-hold on the creative process. With their computers and OS they promote their base with their very nice scripting and coding utilities and applications. i mean, they've created a dashboard widget development application because their users asked for it.

So, suffice that I think they went retarded with the iPhone.

When they're using a device for purposes that were not originally based with the product to begin with (such as hacking a phone so that it will not operate with the network it was specified for), it becomes a compromise. At least, that's how I was taught. I'm actually wondering what else they'll do with the unit if they keep breaking down the programming on it. Considering its popularity, I'm sure there'll be enough demand to get some group in Russia or wherever to break it down.

And I don't disagree that keeping it on one network is dumb, but it was either that or they call their phone something else aside from "iPhone," and we all know how brand names should supercede purpose. < /sarcasm >

There are some business in Europe that are already hacking v1.0.2 iPhones to use. Check some of the articles here: http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/

Hacked iPhones = iPhones bought by non-AT&T customers = more profit for Apple = increased stock price = more money for me. :)

I wish people would start hacking cars, so we could in a sweet Mad Max-style world.

Dude, google "Mad Max Cars."

I think I'm in love.

They need more rusty blades coming off of them though.

And more giant semi-caravans.

True. Cars better with blades and guns.


Have you seen Res Evil: Extinction yet? They use a H1 really well! They run over zombies with it!!!

Hmmm....not yet. I should look into that.

Is it as awesome as the tank-RV from Land of the Dead though?
