Regrets not buying AAPL stock since Jan. ’07 (85.05)

Mum’s not the word concerning iPhone hacks, says Apple

A very omnious statement was reported today by The Unofficial Apple Blog about Apple’s stance concerning iPhone hacking and sim unlocking. The previously thought stance from Cupertino was that of disregard and ignorance, without much concern for those tooling with the phone. Things have changed apparently, as TUAW reports that Apple is telling consumers that “unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone’s software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone software update is installed.” Also, Steve Jobs made another quite impacting comment at the UK iPhone release stating that “[hacking the iPhone] is a continuous cat and mouse game. Are we the cat or mouse, who knows?”

It is unclear whether or not this sudden change of heart is an apparent internal decision by Apple, or related to pressure from Apple’s partnership cell phone carriers (AT&T, O2, T-Mobile, etc).
