Pros and cons of jailbreaking or rooting your smartphone

Hello all,
This is a real nice article worth reading, even if you have your phone already jailbroken.

Reading this as made me understood that the cat and mouse is not going to end any time soon , specially now that I read that apple has applied for a new patent that will allow them to find jailbroken devices and be able to "disable" them remotely.
The patent request :

"[0060]To detect an unauthorized user, process 610 of FIG. 6b can determine whether particular activities are identified at step 612. As described above, the particular activities can include any activities indicating suspicious behavior such as, for example, entering an incorrect password a predetermined number of times in a row, entering an incorrect password a predetermined number of times within a period of time, hacking the electronic device, jailbreaking the electronic device, unlocking of the electronic device, removing a SIM card from the electronic device, moving the electronic device a predetermined distance from a synced device, or any combination of the above. If a particular activity is identified, the current user can be detected as an unauthorized user at step 614. If, however, a particular activity is not identified, process 610 can end at step 616"
