  I think that was a bit uncalled for.  I agree with zcherries, it's a "shame" (not the end of the world, just "a shame") that there isn't a demo or trial for this.  Personally, I don't know anyone using Logic, although I know a lot who used to.  While I could go to the Apple Store, that's not really a great place to see if the app is really for me or not.  What I'd really like to do is have a trial with enough time to go through a Lynda or other tutorial and see if it...
  Wow, talk about your skeuomorphic porn!
  The distinction really isn't that fuzzy.  Most native apps have some sort of server component.  However, a Web app is something where the code is server based, except for the code delivered as HTML/CSS/Javascript or other web browser capable technologies.   On the iOS, it's simple... can it be run in Safari? If yes, then it's a Web app and not a Native App.  Is it in the iTunes Store, or Cydia?  If yes, then it's a Native App and not a Web App.   That's a pretty...
  It's literally not even in my top 166 reasons why I jailbroke: 0. 7-zip (POSIX) 1. Activator 2. AirBlue Sharing 3. AirBlue Stack 4. AirFloat 5. Airplane SBSettings Toggle 6. AnyAttach 7. AppInfo 8. AppList 9. APR (/usr/lib) 10. APT 0.6 Transitional 11. APT 0.7 (apt-key) 12. APT 0.7 HTTPS Method 13. APT 0.7 Strict 14. APT 0.7 Strict (lib) 15. AptBackup 16. AssistantEnhancer 17. AssistantExtensions 18. atom 19. Autolock SBSettings 20. Barrel 21. basic-cmds 22. Berkeley...
  No I didn't.  I gave a whole host of reasons why the number you gave is heavily flawed.  The two biggest reasons being that you're quoting the numbers from a disreputable site to begin with, and then ignoring the fact that you don't have to jailbreak to download cracked apps from that site.     You have no idea how many people who jailbroke have downloaded any app from that site.     Appcake and IPAstore aren't on Cydia.  No offense, but I think you're talking a lot...
    Wow, way to pull the thread.    The point was made that most people jailbreak to pirate apps and that there weren't the same legitimate reasons to jailbreak anymore.  This was countered with the fact that you don't need to jailbreak to pirate apps on iOS, and made further to the point that Apple TV 2nd Gen commands a higher price on eBay because it's capable of being jailbroken, despite the fact there are absolutely zero apps that can be pirated for it.  While there...
  I said, "Nobody here has given any evidence, survey or anything besides talking out of their back end, that any number of people jailbreak to pirate."   And then you point to the number of self-stated downloads from a disreputable site to begin with, wherein you don't need to jailbreak to download those apps, and use that to somehow show that the reason people jailbreak is to pirate.  Logic doesn't work that way.       The article says nothing about developers tracking...
  No, those are questions for you.  You are the one claiming 40% of jailbreakers do so to pirate.  You provided that to show as evidence, but it clearly doesn't prove anything as you can't answer those questions.        No, not at all.  Unlike the Xbox and PS3, there are a huge number of commercial and free apps available for jailbroken devices.  There are a huge number of tweaks and themes and other things you can do with a jailbroken device.  I'm pointing out that you...
    No, the problem is that while that's what they intended, what they did would have the opposite effect.   Look at it this way.  There is a matrix of 4 people:   1) Bought the game, not jailbroken. 2) Bought the game, jailbroken. 3) Pirated the game, not jailbroken. 4) Pirated the game, jailbroken.   What they did was restrict the game for users that fell into group #2, and only group #2.  If you were in any of the 3 other groups, your game played just fine.   If you're...
  I'm not guessing on how many people jailbreak to steal apps.  I've given no statistic on the matter.  I'm just pointing out that: 1) You don't need to jailbreak to pirate apps on iOS, and never have. 2) Many once popular piracy apps/services that ran on jailbroken devices have shut down and cited "lack of interest". 3) The most popular jailbreak communities (http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/) have very few comments about piracy at all, and when someone mentions it,...
