Since the crappy US government has passed a bill saying that jailbreaking is legal, I have one really big question: How is jailbreaking legal? From what I know about jailbreaking, you can get free apps that should usually be paid. That is no different than illegally downloading software through torrents. I believe that the people who put so much time and effort into making those applications should be rewarded. This is making no sense to me that the government would pass something like this and still be so strict about illegally downloading software. I seriously think that monkeys or fish could do a better job in the government (I'm sorry if I offend someone, but I'm extremely ticked off about this).

Just to enlighten you, there are many reasons to Jailbreaking, (Read above article). I, like many, don't condone the piracy of software. The Govermenet Ruling addressed the questionable business practices, violation of privacy rights, and double standards forced upon iPhone users.
Other smartphones have features that iPhone users have to Jailbreak to get. Unlocking phones for out of the country use is one example.
What wasn't covered in the article is the ability to disable "Apple's KillSwitch".
