iPad (Supposedly) Jailbroken

, ,

Less than 24 hours after the product launch. The jailbreak isn’t in the wild, yet, but here’s something I’ve been wondering: How much do you think Apple spends patching Jailbreakable security holes?

Obviously, most problems that they fix are general security fixes. The Jailbreaks go in through the same vectors as malicious code might, and that makes sense. But there’s got to be things they do in the name of simply stopping the jailbreak. In other words, there’s got to be a dollar amount on this. I wonder how many man-hours the jailbreakers retroactively piss away on Apple’s behalf?
