hackers get access to iphone firmware

It's been a busy weekend for all those lucky enough to snag an iPhone. I've been glued to my computer for the past 48 hours and based on public opinion, I don't think that the launch and the product could have gone any better. Remember, there have been few tech products as hyped and revered as the iPhone -- only Windows 95 comes close in terms of hype -- and I think it will be a while before we see another one.
I keep trying to compare the launch of the iPhone with the launch of the Microsoft Zune. Both products were launched into mature markets and both had a generous amount of marketing lavished upon them. And yet the Zune with all its hype is a complete flop. Microsoft has left it to flounder and instead of upgrading the software to make the device better they've dropped the price and changed the colours. It's not even as good as the first generation iPod which is 5 years old now.

Any way you cut it, love or hate Apple you've got to admit that the iPhone will change the game.
Now, to some must read articles:

Hackers are already on to it.
Hackers found the link to download the restore image for iPhone hidden away on Akamai mirrors. They're now working on how to open the encrypted OS X disk image within the restore file -- the key is somewhere in the iPhone itself. How long till the device is hacked and we get the ability to use SIM cards from any carrier and load in our own plugins and apps?

Jobs shows up for iPhone launch
Steve visits the Apple store in Palo Alto for the launch. For a guy who has a (government sanctioned) numberplateless car, we can only assume he had a bevy of security people dressed up to look like starstruck iPhone fans.

Apple posts photos from launch.
Just look at all those happy, happy people. No aggro customers in this Apple-selected lot!

How Apple will conquer the wireless industry
Interesting take on how Apple will use the iPhone to take over the wireless industry.
It would be a good thing for me to find an unlocked Iphone, because I live in canada. But I think apple will block them by itunes.

Edit: Your links from the source are broken.
I'm pretty sure that doing that would be illegal under the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act), because the encryption could be called a DRM protection. I would not be surprised if the mechanism is similiar to the chips used in the new Macs to limit the Intel version of OSX to Apple machines.
