Re: IOS6.1 adoption related to pending JB?

And the meaning for 'JB' is ??????

As I have stated on here before, I hate acronyms! To me it is a sign of extreme arrogance (and laziness) to reduce something to an acronym, assuming that everyone knows what you are talking about, and if they don't, they are too stupid to care about. God forbid that you would actually have to type out a couple of whole words!

Well, I for one don't know what jb stands for, but from context I am interested in the thread discussion about something that everyone seems to be waiting for.

Jackson Brown?
Justin Bieber?
Jim Bonacci?
Just Basic?
Jim Beam (whiskey)?
Joe Blow?
Joe Biden?
Junction Box?
Jerusalem Bible?
James Bond?
Junior Brown?

My guess is Jail-break, but who knows....?

Learn something new every day - never knew jailbreak was supposed to have a hyphen oops I used a smiley instead of spelling it out.......

Oddly enough, it's one of the acronyms used to filter topics in this forum:

See: All, Unreplied, Beginner, OS X, Network, SU, rant, humor, Snow, Leo, iPhone, iPad, Security, JB, ML

Quick, notify the mods! Oh, and I guess we need to get rid of SU and ML as well.

The world is full of acronyms and your dislike of them isn't going to change that one bit. Sorry about that!

You're in a Mac software forum where JB is practically synonymous with jailbreaking. Too bad.

It's called context my friend. You're reading a thread about iOS in an Apple forum. That should give you some pretty obvious clues we're not discussing James Bond.

No, we are discussing jailbait, some of us prefer the ipad mini to the ipad
