iPhone Pirate

Tonight at a local Starbucks, I realized the guy across the table from me was charging people to jailbreak their iPhones and install an application that would let them to pirate all their iPhone apps. He obviously set it up beforehand, because I saw a half dozen people come in and pay him $30 or $40 for each phone. Gee, that’s lovely. He pulled down around $200 in less than an hour. I felt like confronting him and his “customers”.

I’m obviously in the wrong business. Creating stuff for people is for suckers, the real money is in helping people screw over software developers. I would’ve taken a video of the whole thing and added it to this post, but my camera battery was completely dead.
