Apple is fighting jailbreakers, Microsoft embraces them
"#geohot if you want to build cool stuff on #wp7, send me email and the team will give you a phone - let dev creativity flourish #wp7dev."
However, one company which doesn't appreciate geohot's (real name: George Hotz) cracks at hacking is Sony, and the Japanese company has brought him to court for offering the jailbreak for PlayStation 3. As we all know, Apple is also looking down on jailbreaking efforts.
We only recently posted that one of the true Windows Mobile heavyweights - the HTC HD2 - received its WP7 update thanks to some Chinese lads. As we know, third-party developers are usually first to post software updates/enhancements, so, for the end consumers, MS's decision can only be a good thing.
