    how on earth does an iPhone beat out Android it's 'hack-a-bility'?

    There are a lot of things the iPhone does right and takes the cake, but that is certainly not one of them.

    I've used Apple's fine products for many years. People who say that the company is "evil".....I can't describe what I want to say. It would be disrespectful.

    And when you say things about how evil Apple is, what are you saying about me? Am I a "mindless" Apple Fan boy? No, I'm someone who knows a good product when I see it,

    I will say this. I've never seen any group of people treated so disrespectfully then the way Android people treat people who use Apple products. I have a rooted Droid, that doesn't mean I'm smarter then an iPhone person. It's just the phone I choose to use. And if I go go to an iPhone 5 in September I will not say one negative thing about a person who uses Android.

    As far as iTunes, there is nothing bad about using iTunes. Blackberry has you use Device Manager. Is that evil too? It's basically the same idea only with iTunes you can do so much more.

    It just makes me sad to see threads like this. It's almost like racisim. Its just ugly.

    Yes, they force it on you. You have no other options for putting music or such on. I'd call that force.

    I agree that iTunes is now an epic fail. I purposely bought a non-apple mp3 player simply because iTunes was downright stupid. That being said I've seen some good things from them. I used to work for Geek Squad and I saw more broken iPhones than anything. I personally hate the screen and the fact that iPhones aren't as PC compatible. If you're a Mac junkie though, go for it.

    How is iTunes a fail? I've been using it for years. I have 10 days worth of music stored on my Mac and iTunes does a great job of managing them. Now I use it to back up and update my iPad.

    You just say things like "epiic fail" but you don't give a single reason why. you just hate to hate because that's what all the "cool" android kids do.

    I recommend people go back and read Hook's post on here two or three times. Then go back and read it again. It so completely sums up my feelings on the Apple situation as well and the way the users tend to be treated by Android users. Are there some hyped up iPhone and Apple users? Yup, but I will say that I haven't seen anywhere near the animosity while modding the iPhone and iPad forums towards Android as vice versa.

    Just something to think about. And for every one of you that comes back with an "I know an Apple fanboi" I will easily point out three "Android fanbois".

    Well, you can go to to the JailbreakeMe website with your iPhone and it done.

    I have an iPod and use iTunes, but sometimes I use the Anapod software. It makes your iPod act like a removable hard drive and bypasses iTunes.

    that doesn't answer my question, being able to 'one click' install doesn't make it more hackable... you can't come close to customizing an iphone like you can android.

    Z4root works amazingly on most phones and its 1 click root so its just as easy as going to that site. Also, i would NEVER trust a website with doing something like that. Do you know how easy it is to input malicious code on a website?

    Theres other ways to put music on your ipod than itunes however most of them only work in linux or are worse than itunes is.

    I love my droid but when it comes to mp3 players I only use apple. They are, in my opinion, some of the best mp3 players currently on the market. They're not too bad on price (yes theyre a little higher but you also pay for the apple logo.... its like anything else, your paying for the name as well as the product), they're very easy to use, and are very well written from a code perspective. I've never had any problems with them freezing or anything like that. They have semi-decent support (better than Creative in my experiences). Just because i like Apple doesnt mean i'm an "Apple fanboi" just like me liking droids doesnt make me a "Droid fanboi".

    Just my two cents....

    People,

    I am not an apple fan, nor do I dislike it. I think it is a great platform for a certain population who like that type of system. I like the Android system, but I can admire the iPhone for the engineering that goes into it, and have to agree with Hookbill on this. I personally do not like being constrained like the iPhone does (without the jailbreaking), and perfer the Android phones. Just my opinion. I also like certain foods that other people do not. Shouild I make fun of people for not eating the same foods as me? Of course not. If you prefer the android, that's fine. If you perfer the iPhone, that's also fine.

    My personal opinion is that Apple is a company that is too constrained. They almost dies with PCs for keeping things so locked up. Until the iPhone/iTunes/iPad. Now that there is competition, I worry about their health as a company. Meanwhile android is increasing market shares and doing well. This is just my opinion and I will listen to other opinions and consider them.

    Cheers,

    I never use flash anyway lol & I can't use itunes.... no windows computer, so jailbreak and ssh is my only real option.

    Once its confermed that the ipad 2 is jailbreakable I'm buying it,
    IMO cydia tops everything that android has..

    b/c, for some people, that little device attached to your hip is somehow correlated with the type of person you are
