Why Apple should thank the jailbreakers and not patch/stop the jailbreaking exploits

First of all, the iPhone is crippled in many ways, but most of my complaints about functionality have been addressed through the jailbreak, I can run apps in the background of my choosing, I can install a terminal, acccess my phone through SSH and SCP and so much more.

It even addresses the 15 minute e-mail problem, I installed a program called "PushMod" and now set the checking time to just 1 minute.

Apple should really thank the developers for this gift, it makes my life a lot easier, and without these hacks/modifications I wouldn't continue to use iPhone ,in fact if jailbreaking is not possible in future iPhone's I won't buy another.

I would rather go with a more open, Linux based widget phone like HTC Hero.  Apple should understand that it is beginning to annoy its users and is falling behind its competition.  The only thing it will be able to hold onto is the "there's an App for that", meaning iPhone has the best variety of software.

However, the iPhone in its "stock form" is not worth it even with the apps considered, since it doesn't meet my needs unless it is jailbroken and fully customizable.

I hope Apple will keep this in mind, and this is coming from a business oriented user who replaced the Blackberry with iPhone.
