More iPhonery

I made a bet on how long it'd be before I gave in to the temptation to jailbreak my new iPhone (i.e., bypass Apple's restrictions on what applications will run on it). Thus far I've been hesitant to do so because MacOS 10.5.6 breaks the DFU mode used to re-flash the firmware on the iPhone. But now I have two different bypasses for that DFU mode issue -- either downgrade to the 10.5.5 USB software for MacOS, or hook up the iPhone via a hub. So we'll see tomorrow whether I actually jailbreak it or not.

Hmm. I managed to last two weeks! Whoa! I must be losing my geekiness. Huh.
