Saurik: “Even Software Should Have Screws” [Video]

In the following video, Jay Freeman (a.k.a. Saurik, Cydia's creator and main developer) talks about the reasons behind software modifications and jailbreak at TEDx, an independently organized event.

The session is really interesting, as it provides some insight on how, after all, jailbreakers are really similar to those people who buy a car and start customizing it. If you think about it, it makes sense.
