    "(An earlier proof-of-concept app that Miller had developed, which allowed a user to zoom in on pictures of David Hasselhoff, was rejected by Apple for having no useful value.)"

    Hahahahahahaha!!! Poor David Hasselhoff!! What a Cut!!!

    Hmmm. So flaw found. Flaw submitted within app. App passes into market. So who's to blame here? Apparently Apple dropped the ball but doesn't want to say..."oops".Despite being embarrassed they should cowboy up and accept the flaw and be thankful it wasn't exploited by someone malicious. Heck, I'd contract this guy to look for more, since whomever has the job is asleep at the wheel.

    Exactly, Jay.

    After all, they hired the kid that wrote the jailbreak.me hack.

    He wasn't an employee. He was a member of their developers program.

    Heck, didn't Jobs hack? Mitnick even got hired as a consultant.

    Being embarrassed is one thing, but I think the interest of your users should be more important. This guy has shown his talent for thinking different.

    Keep him, use his talents.

    There is too much of the story missing with this one. The first go-around did Apple explain, point out and communicate why his first App was not approved. Did this guy know what he was doing was wrong? While I some what support the App Dev for sticking his neck out and pushing the envelope I also tend to resort back to hold people accountable for their own actions.

    It's hard to imagine this Dev didn't know what he was doing and did it knowing it was wrong and what would happen hence shinning a light on himself for his own reasons. I'm glad he chose to do so but I think he needs to also pay the price for doing it.

    I know, I'm mean

    No, pretty sure he knew, and I think it was the point that it would get through.
