YES, but no one forces you to update. The phone is AMAZING at 1.0.2. So don't play cat and mouse, stop updating. EASY solution.I think you guys are missing the overall point of the OP. He is saying that he doesn't want to deal with the constant cat and mouse between us and Apple. Even if the dev team cracks 1.1.1 (more a matter of when, nothing is uncrackable ) there will always be 1.2.1, and 1.3.1, you get my point. Apple is not going to turn around tomorrow and apologize for chasing us all off and promise never to do it again. They're going to turn around tomorrow and once again remind us we're all SOL in the long run if they want us to be.
I think that the Apple community has learned a harsh lesson these past few weeks. We all viewed Apple as the Utopian company of our dreams, the one technology company we all could trust, the one brand recognizable to even the computer illiterate as the pinnacle of quality. Now, as if to remind us once again that Apple is a business, not a religion, Jobs and his minions have given us a sharp slap on the face, and now we all just feel stupid for trusting what was essentially a wolf in sheep's clothing. Who's fault is it that we are all so pissed off? Ours, for thinking that Apple would do anything other than pursue the almighty dollar.
I don't know about you guys, but when Apple gave us all that $100 credit for the price drop, that was the last time I felt good about my decisions to buy Apple products. Now, I just want to trade in all my macs and ipods and iphone in anger for believing something that could never be true.
