Zeropaid, a beloved source of useful technology-related information, has provided a nice summary of the path to jailbreaking iPhone.
As a person not owning an iPone of my own, but supporting a spouse who does, I've toyed with the dilemma of "to jailbreak or not to jailbreak" several times and always came to the conclusion that such a course of action is recommended to power users.
Now that Apple has made a clear change of course from past policies in its economic management, I was starting to wonder whether it might be that Apple will change its annoying policy in another area as well. As the new management is apparantly more attentive to the crowds' wishes, might it be that Apple will continue support those users who wish to have a less-closed experience with their iPhone ?
So, just incase anyone out there is listening: Apple, your users would appreciate it if you would make life outside the official Appstore allowed.
