Apple Hacker is 19 and Goooood

It's funny how much Apple (and other companies) tries to lock down their platforms so that people can't mess with them.  What makes this funny is that there is always a way to get around this and the honest consumers are usually the ones that get burned.  What I find hilarious is that one of Apple's biggest enemies is a 19-year old kid named Nicholas Allegra and describes hacking Apple like "...editing an English paper..."

In what's becoming almost an annual summer tradition, the pseudonymous hacker has twice released a piece of code called JailBreakMe that allows millions of users to strip away in seconds the ultra-strict security measures Apple has placed on its iPhones and iPads, devices that account for more than half the company's $100 billion in revenues.
