Comex now an Apple intern!

He is only 19! And this teenage prodigy has been creating a storm in the Apple world ever since he introduced the iPhone tool that can be used to download even those apps that Apple has not approved off. Startling news is that Apple has now hired this teen hacker.
From what the teenager has to say, it seems like Apple is adopting an age old policy that says, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” It appears that Nicholas is now a new intern at Apple. News about him joining Apple was on his Twitter page where he says, “It’s been really, really fun, but it’s also been a while and I’ve been getting bored. So the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.”
From the looks of it, Apple seems to have worked strategically by employing the young genius. After all they save a huge amount on their expenses, and they no longer have to worry about security and one more genius brain hacking into their application servers. Although Nicholas did make clear his future plans, Apple did not bother much to comment on Mr Allegra’s internship with them.
Here’s a bit of insight into what the JailbreakMe 2.0 was all about. Firstly this nifty piece of program works on any Apple iOS 4; it can be used on all iPhones with supported firmware. Using JailbreakMe is simple, it does not require the user to connect the iPhone to a computer system and doing complicated steps to jailbreak. Simply point your Safari app on the device and visit jailbreakme.com
Just follow the instruction to slide to jailbreak, then you just need to sit and wait for JailbreakMe doing its own job.
Apple had made it mandatory for apps developers to get their apps approved by Apple before it was made available in the iTunes store. There were a set of rules application developers had to follow. As a result of Apples stringent approval terms, several worthy apps never saw the light.
Last Year the U.S. Library of Congress passed a law that allowed ‘jailbreaking.’ Apple however seemed to be undeterred by these laws as it still continued to disable phones that were jailbroken by introducing software upgrades. In other words, owners of jail-broken phones could not upgrade their phones unless they opted for an upgrade. This also put them at a huge risk of warranty violation. This was obviously a huge expense for Apple; and employing Nicholas as one of their interns saves them a lot of trouble and money.
