iPhone unlocked

I still don't quite want one yet, but some very hard-working folks have gotten the iPhone to run Apache and Python (open-source applications). Why is this a big deal? Well, Apple said they wouldn't allow any third-party apps to run on their iPhone - it all had to come from Apple. Well, now they kinda sorta lost control over their device. I'm pretty certain this will be "fixed" with a forced upgrade through iTunes at some point, but this could lead to some really cool apps for the iPhone. And if Apple allows the hackers to roam free, this device could turn into something cooler than it already is...
