Jailbreaking Thoughts

During live calls recently, Oscar wanted to know my thoughts on jailbreaking now that the courts have decided that it’s legal. It’s not that I dislike jailbreaking in the past. I didn’t find it compelling. I love my iPhone because it comes with a total package – the hardware, software and user experience are all excellent. Sure, I’m not happy with AT&T much of the time, but why would I want to take a chance of messing up my phone for that reason alone?

I was at a local tweetup recently, and someone went on and on about their jailbroken phone. He showed me a couple of neat things he could do with his iPhone that I cannot. However, as he’s showing me what it can do, the phone began rebooting. Yeah – I don’t want to do that to my phone.

If someone wants to jailbreak their phone, go for it. I don’t plan to do so with my phone. I actually think Google should work to develop a version of Android specifically for the iPhone, since so many people want to jailbreak them.

I doubt I will ever jailbreak my iDevices.

iMac Second Monitor Question

Liam has a brand-new iMac, and a 42″ television sitting around. He’s wondering if he can connect the television to the iMac to increase his workspace. As far as I know, the new iMacs will indeed do this.

As long as the iMac is a newer one and has the video out to video in connections on it, this will work in theory. Also, the television should be at least 1080p. If it’s not, you won’t be able to push many pixels down the pipe.

However, a second screen IS a second screen.
