Owners of iPhone 4s who want to jailbreak their devices in order to install apps not approved by Apple can now do so easily with the latest version of the JailbreakMe app. All they have to do is go to the app's site using the phone's Safari app, and the built-in Web browser on the device will do the rest. The app was updated just days after the Library of Congress ruled that jailbreaking an iPhone is legal under the Digial Millennium Copyright Act. While jailbreaking gives iPhone users more control over their devices, it could lead to increased malware infections.
You call yourself a technology journalist? This article is riddled with false claims and absurd opinions.
"The only draw is novelty" ... How could you even quote this? What about unlocking, wireless syncing, free tethering for an internet connection we ALREADY pay for, no restrictions and the thousands of other features Apple does not permit.
