Why would anyone buy this thing. I have an iPhone that's much smaller already, why would I buy this big iPod Touch??? If it was running as a Mac then OH YEAH!

I agree. If you couldn't jailbreak the iphone or if Apple would act like they didn't have a way to stop jailbreaking completely(because they do but they know how bad it would hurt their sales so they try to keep the balance by updating firmware thats jailbroken in a week anyway)nobody would buy it. This includes the iPad that we all know will be jailbroken before it's even released.

The only time I'll be owning the iPad is when its' been jailbroken along with all of the cydia apps i'm currently loving available. Running stock apple hardware sucks ass.

@Mr Q, generally the earlier production runs are the ones easiest to exploit. For example the first production run of the iPhone 3G has a downgradeable bootloader so it can always be unlocked. Apple fixed this in later production runs.
