Gadget site asks if jailbreaking is redundant, readers answer no

Following on from the previous Engadget post that claimed jailbreaking is now less relevant with the availability of the app store, there’s a new poll on the site asking what the readers think. As I type the results are 63% say still relevant, 25.1% only need the App store and 11.9% picked the stupid/don’t care answer. So that’s a large majority of people still want their iPhone’s and iPod’s jailbroken.

The iPhone Dev team has responded to the original claim in a post on their blog, and appear to have taken just a little bit of offence at the claim that their work is ‘less and less relevant with each passing day’. I can certainly understand their feelings since they are providing a free service that continues to help a lot of people. When Engadget uses headlines like DevTeam releases PwnageTool and QuickPwn 2.1, wants to rumble’ I have to ask, is there any point to this antagonism?
