Jailbreaking the iPhone – Worth It Or a Waste of Time?

You have probably been hearing the term “jailbreaking” a lot lately. No, it doesn’t mean busting out of jail and going on the run. It is a technical term applied to network-connected devices, and you can jailbreak anything from a Playstation to an Android.

When I bought my iPad, I found a lot of the software to be slow, unnecessarily large, and frustrating to use. Half the time it was so buggy that I couldn’t use it at all.
