iPhone reverse engineering

fascinating read. Vietnamese entrepreneur is disassembling iPhones and hacking them to unlock them and make them usable for Vietnamese network carriers. Apple has restrictive policies regarding using their product with other networks (read outside their monopoly). Some people are not accepting this.

Other people get even more creative.  Linux is entering iPhone. It seems that open source and spirit behind it is unstoppable.

But from my perspective, why at first place acept such repressive policies from Apple. I would never support them and buy their product. Just choose an open source G1 Android.
