Piracy Killing the App Store?

Is Apple taking a huge hit from piracy? You wouldn’t think so based on what has been seen from Apple’s recent profits. The fact that anyone is actually concerned about Apple’s IP being stolen is almost side-splitting.

Why would I say such a thing? Simple. First of all, whining about it does nothing to stop the piracy from taking place. Then going on to point out that somehow jailbreaking the iPhone contributes to the problem, is insane.

It’s true that jailbreaking allows for pirated software to run, but the idea that it somehow contributes to the problem, is simply reaching for nonsense.

    How can you say that you can only run pirated software on jailbroken phones and at the same time say that it doesn’t contribute to the problem? No jailbreak, no piracy, QED. This is the same issue that is stopping Android from running software off the SD card…

  3. It is unclear if you have to be a freshman or just have a college ID which a graduate student will have. Does it say you have to be a freshman?
