It seems Apple’s relation to Adobe might take another hit – the latest jailbreak seems to rely on a weakness in Safari’s PDF reader. The cool thing is that it does not need any Mac or Windows software to run, just point your iPhone browser to http://jailbreakme.com/.
I can’t say I get that. It can’t be about the browser war. Looks like Steve has something up his sleeve that builds on Safari, so he needs to make it available as widely as possible. Markus calls the iPhone a “sandbox for Safari applications” – the Windows beta might be an indication that he’s right. Alex has more thoughts on this.
