    So, Bodega (appbodega.com) already is a place where software that is not available in the official Apple App Store can be distributed on Mac OS X. In particular, you can find software such as Seas0nPass (the AppleTV Jailbreak) and DropBox (which modifies Finder and thereby violates the Apple sandbox). I am honestly surprised that this article was written without one mention of Bodega, given that the HackStore seems to offer no advantages over it.

    (For my part, I am the developer of Cydia on iOS, and Bodega’s existence is the reason why you won’t see me bother releasing a Cydia for Mac without first having figured out how to get Substrate, the real reason people use Cydia, working on that platform. The interesting challenge is not “distribute applications”–again, there already is a perfectly reasonable and well-worn way to do that: Bodega–it is instead to figure out how to change the way people write software.)

    Interesting, hadn’t heard of it. Will check it out. Thanks for all your work by the way with Cydia :)

    :( http://test.saurik.com/proof/ <- This is really me, and I've thereby had to flag you for being a troll (and as the real pod2g would have verified with me on IRC before making such a comment, I can also feel pretty certain you are fake ;P). (Additionally, this pod2g account claims to be in the US, and that's not where pod2g is from. Seriously: is this funny?)

    P.S. when server was down 15000 people was online.

    How is this breaking news when we already have Bodega ? How is it different ? Why was Bodega not even mentioned ?
