I think apple should open it up to everyone for a fee-I certainly would pay to have Siri on my phone.
If apple want to stop jail breaking they need to provide what jailbreaking already does.
If you cannot beat em-join em!
I certainly would pay for apps like "lockinfo" ect.

robes1, you need to chill out and get down from your moral high horse! All the outrage??!!
How do you know that they didn't buy an iphone 4s, uninstall Siri, and then install it to the iphone 4?
Jailbreaking allows you to install whatever software you want, not just what Apple (big brother) approves. So essentially, Windows is "jailbroken" too, because I can install whatever software I want, including stolen/pirated software.
Imagine if Microsoft decided to lock down Windows so that you could only install software that they approve and they sold to you. Software pirating has always existed and will always exist. Jailbreaking has nothing to do with it.
I got an idea, if you really want to put an end to pirating, let's make a law against all computers, and cell phones. That way, there won't be any software to pirate.
Relax about Siri, I think Apple is big enough to know how to deal with the server loads once the novelty wears off after a few months. Then Iphone 5 will come out, and guess what, it will have Siri too, and so will every iphone, so eventually the server loads will go way up.
Look at it like television. If you pay for cable but 5 million people steal cable television service and cause you to lose all of your channels will you go to your cable providers site and write about how they should fix their equipment to handle it so that you can continue to pay while people jump on for free and wreck your service?
Also windows is not jailbroken or hacked. It was created to be used that way. Nobody has to modify windows to run legitimate programs. You just install them. You may need to change a few preferences but that's about it. You're comparing a lion to a rainbow.
So essentially you rode in on a high horse with the knowledge of a rock. No outrage here. Just stating the facts.
Also..just so everyone understands. I love jailbreaking. I jailbreak myself. I go to Cydia and purchase apps like iFile and others. I don't steal from developers in the jailbreak Comminity. If you have ever created anything in your life then you will understand that seeing it stolen is not cool. Especially when we are talking about people with families to feed.
