Yeah, pretty much. Blame resides on the person doing the exploitation, not the exploited.
Man, I hope you never complain or go to the police if someone enters your house and takes your CPU, TV, wallet, stereo or, God forbid, kidnaps one of your children because you left the rear door open.
Snack on that.
Um..."No question Palm is to blame." Really? Apple left the back door open. It was exploited. You might as well start blaming Apple for leaving iPhone software open to jailbreaking.
Back doors are left open and exploited. Think of it as technological evolution, or capitalism and innovation. If you want to hate on Palm, go ahead and hate on yellows0w, redsn0w, ultrasn0w, purplera1n, etc., etc.
I am a recent convert to Mac and the iPhone. I love their products. Absolutely love them. I just try to keep a certain level of objectivity.
