    Talking The Cat & Mouse Game what it really is.

    Does anyone else here ever wonder how a new FW is released and then a hack to unlock it couple weeks later?

    This is my outlook on this subject of the Cat & Mouse game by Steve Jobs.

    Iphone is released Summer 07. Initial release did fairly okay but not that great.
    Phone sales were sluggish as people like myself were relunctant to move to ATT and their horrible service.

    Then come news that someone has managed to unlock the iPhone by hardware unlock. This picks up steams through the open community and more and more news come out that a software unlock has been developed (IPSF).

    All the sudden people are clamoring all over Apple store trying to buy a Iphone so they can unlock it and use it where ever they want. Good 2 months pass and Apple claims that they have sold 1 million phones and they will discontinue the 4GB. The prices have been reduced, a very unpresedented move in the mobile industry but it happend.

    Everyone is all happy and all that the phones can be unlocked. Then another bit of news is released. This is after SJ finds out how everyone is unlocking the phone and using it with another carrier. I would be piss too that I am not only making $150 off each phone plus another $400 is being lost for every phone which gets activated with ATT. So they release FW1.1.1 to stop all this unlocking non-sense and everyone can get back to business to meet Wall-Streets expectation.

    And guess what happens...the sales start to dwindle at Apple Store and ATT. Because everyone and their mothers bought the limited amt of old stock as soon as news spread about FW1.1.1 bricking the phones and they cannot be unlocked.

    Oh here we go again, Cupertino HQ--->> hey Steve what do you want us to do? Sales are plummeting like Pamela Andersons tits.

    SJ: Ok, tell Woz to go undercover and get in the hacking community to release the downgrade method from 1.1.1 > 1.0.2 and then the granddady of all theTiff exploit. If that works, then ask him to release the BB spec code.

    Woz: Sorry Sj you forgot I don't work for you anymore and I am too busy with kathyG.

    SJ: Damit Woz, I guess I will have to do it myself. Maybe I can make an extra buck or two from the hacker community donation fund and boost our stock even higher.

    So this is my version of the cat and mouse game that SJ mentioned.

    Release the phone>slow sales>release the unlock code>patch it up again>slow sales>release new hack code.

    Enjoy this game while it last!

    Interesting...except not likely... record sales period for iphone sales wasin june-july...BEFORE unlock was even a breath, and jailbreak was on the boards...

    The tiff exploit?... no brainchild of ol SJ either...go look into some of the history of how the PSP was cracked.

    LOL, the OPer is an idiot.

    1 million units in 74 days... that's not a lot, and sales were dropping hugely. </sarcasm>
