  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,...
  No, it shows a site that is saying it has had over 700K downloads of Angry Birds.  Has it, because surely no disreputable site would ever lie about that number.  Of those downloads, how many were actually installed?  Of those that were installed, how many were on jailbroken devices (again, you don't have to jailbreak to pirate apps).  Of those that were installed on jailbroken devices, how many were not later purchased, or had already been purchased but the user...
  Sorry, but you really don't know what you're talking about.  Piracy seems to be down overall for iOS apps.  I say this because so many piracy repositories have shut down.  Even Installuous shut down stating lack of interest.  Meanwhile jailbreaking is at an all-time high.  There are a record number of tweaks, themes and apps in Cydia.  While iOS has incorporated many features that were jailbreak features only before, the development of additional features has increased...
  There are lots of questions regarding jailbreaking an iPad.  1) What countries are we talking about? 2) In the US, what would happen if someone were charged with this?  Nobody ever has, and if they were, there would be all kinds of legal challenges. 3) Does the Library of Congress have the authority to make the laws it has? (this hasn't been ruled on yet)   The only reason why the iPad wasn't included in the explicit exemption is because the definition of a tablet...
  That should be "Apple says, 'it can void your warranty'".
