iPhone 4 Jailbreak Legal: Will It Increase Competition?

When it comes to the Apple iPhone the hot subject everyone seems to chat about is jailbreaking and considering yesterday we reported that it is now legal the news is hotter than ever.

Yesterday we reported that Library of Congress (LoC) has ruled that jailbreaking a smartphone like the Apple iPhone 4 for example is permissible under the Digital Millennium Copyright Acts fair use provisions, read full story here.

We cannot see Apple especially Steve Jobs sitting back and allowing this to happen because they like control, so much so we think they are robots on a mission to take over the world and feed us when it suits them. Steve Jobs come on it is healthy competition and it allows more quality into smartphones, if you do not agree Apple please do let us know why.

Jailbreaks are normally temperamental at first and problems occur, so many forms of jailbreaks have been made and some have failed and some have succeeded. Look at the new Spirit iOS 4 jailbreak release for example; this one has been delayed because of FaceTime problems.

Let us know if making iPhone 4 Jailbreak Legal is a good thing or simply madness, we would love to know what you are thinking. Please check out our poll below and answer where you feel fit.

  1. Apples over censorship (now also in the bookstore) will create another setback that I’m sure the company could have done with not coming to light at the moment in time ,it will be interesting to see what's next in the news regarding iPhone/Apple issues (antenna, manufacturing, roaming service charges) and their steps to refund cases won’t make up for the iPhone 4's lack of function over form.

    It's a shame to see so many issues with the iPhone 4 after so many people waited for it's release. What's more of a shame is that it seems Apple knew about some of these issues already, such as the problem with reception.

    But Apple have created such a loyal following that people may just put up with what issues there are for the sake of owning the latest Apple product.
    Personally, I'd be happier with an older iPhone – at least then the issues are all ironed out.

    However, it's also interesting to see how much excitement new technologies can bring. New technology and innovation is important for new business, illustrated by entrepreneurship grants and new business competitions like http://www.ukesnc.com.

    Guess it's not all bad!

    I have an iPhone 4 and all of these "problems" are so overblown. This phone has not let me down once. I love how before internal antennas people knew not to cover them an now that it's disguised into the phone people are so amazed that if you cover the antenna you lose reception. Everybody wants to attack apple but they still do the job better than the competition.

    It’s always amazing to read the comments posted on these sites, people are still “sheep” as we can see by the latest happenings in our “American Society.” If someone throws a rock and yells, it’s a bomb people scatter. This supposedly issue with the iPhone antenna is just like the rock, millions of people bought and are happy with their new iPhone 4, the less than 15% of the 600,000 buyers on the first offering of the phone heard “bomb” when the mainstream-media decided that Apple is trying to be Ma-Bell and like sheep scattered. Brand loyalty is one consideration but let’s be honest, everyone guns for the best and regardless of what the “news” media enflames isn’t it amazing that Consumer Guide rated the iPhone 4 the best Smartphone on the market today, but like the other sheep they then stood dumbfounded and asked, what’d they say? The answer…the rock was just a pebble!

    Jailbreaking the iPhone will not increase competition because Apple still does not support jailbreaking iPhones. If you do, they will brick your iPhone and deny your warranty. With iPhone 4's antenna design flaw and Consumer Report's advise not to buy the iPhone 4 to their millions of subscribers, Apple is falling slightly out of the competition unless they make a comeback with a redesigned antenna.
