fdm small More on the iControlPad

First of all: the device will NOT support the official SDK – iPhones must be jailbroken if the iControlPad should be used with them. The device will cost about 30$ and should begin shipping in September.

I personally consider this the worst possible scenario for Apple: until now, the jailbreaking community consisted of freaks who just did it for fun. However, they now have the first company that depends on jailbreaks – the cat-and-mouse game can now become even harder as more resources are available to the “cracker” fraction…
