We love jailbreaking our iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads because it opens up it opens up so many great new possibilities . It also has the potential to cause a lot of problems and headaches. Here's why you might not want to jailbreak.

Additionally, some security experts believe that jailbreaking your iDevice isn't safe from a security standpoint. Opening up your device to new possibilities can also mean opening up your device to new vulnerabilities. While you can take steps to prevent that, it, again, takes a bit of effort that you may not be willing to perform.

If you don't like paying for apps on the iTunes App Store, you're going to hate paying for them on the Cydia Store. There are some amazing apps, and, personally, I have no problem shelling out the money for the developers, but the best ones are often paid apps/extensions and cost more, on average, than what you'll find on iTunes. If you're not ready to shell out some cash for some of the best options—like better notifications, better SMS, better app switching, retro game emulation, and more—you might want to keep your iDevice in its unjailbroken state.

-Sept. 9, 12:30 p.m. CT, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico: Halfway down the southbound four-lane highway from Cancun to the ancient ruins in Tulum, traffic inexplicably slowed to a halt. There was some sort of checkpoint ahead by the Mexican Federal Police. I began to wonder whether it was a good idea to have brought along the ATM skimmer instead of leaving it in the hotel safe. If the cops searched my stuff, how could I explain having ultra-sophisticated Bluetooth ATM skimmer components in my backpack?

The above paragraph is an excerpt that I pulled from the body of Part II in this series of articles and video essays stemming from a recent four-day trip to Mexico. During that trip, I found at least 19 different ATMs that all apparently had been hacked from the inside and retrofitted with tiny, sophisticated devices that store and transmit stolen card data and PINs wirelessly.

In June 2015, I heard from a source at an ATM firm who wanted advice and help in reaching out to the right people about what he described as an ongoing ATM fraud campaign of unprecedented sophistication, organization and breadth. Given my focus on ATM skimming technology and innovations, I was immediately interested.

This article originally ran on May 24, 2016, when we were in the midst of a run on virtual reality teaser pitches that had lasted for months. Apparently the ad is running again and this older article has been difficult for readers to track down, because we’re getting lots and lots of questions about it again… so we’re re-posting it here for your edutainment, with a few added bells and whistles.

The ad has been updated a bit, it appears, so a few of the quotes below might not match the current version of the ad — but the pitch is still clearly for the same three stocks hinted at in the original ad and in this version. If you’re curious, I’ve added a chart way down at the bottom in the PS so you can see how the three stocks have done in the ten months or so since this ad from Smart Tech Investor made the rounds the first time (or, at least, since I wrote about it on May 24 last year).

I really want to promise that this will be the last Virtual Reality article for the week… but every time I say that, some big publisher rolls out another huge campaign and I feel compelled to respond. But I hope it will be the last VR pitch we look at for at least a few days.
