The State of Smart Phones Today

| What is worse than this, I feel, is the fact
| that people have come to expect to be locked
| out of their own hardware by default. Since
| I've gotten my N900, I've lost track of the
| number of people who asked if I plan on "jail-
| breaking" the device. I always respond with
| "No". A large contributing factor to my
| purchase of Nokia's latest internet tablet
| (that's right it is a computer first and phone
| second) was that they allow the user
| unrestricted access to the device with out any
| hacks or cracks.
