There's a trend that's been disturbing me lately. When the topic of modding or jailbreaking comes up--say, in the wake of the iPad announcement, or Sony's restrictive PS3 update--there is an outcry. Who am I to tell Apple what's best for their devices? How can I in good conscience urge others to void their warranties or break license agreements? And why should anyone care when only a small proportion of people hack or jailbreak their devices?
