Apple Breaking iBooks on Some Jailbroken iPhones

Good article on Gizmodo entitled "Apple Breaking iBooks on Some Jailbroken iPhones" may be of interest to those reading on Jailbroken iPhones. Sounds like a good reason to remove DRM to me.

The problem is that, as far as I know, nobody has succeeded in removing DRM from iBookstore ebooks (and why bother, when almost all of the same books are available elsewhere).

Which to me only argues for avoiding iBookstore purchases altogether: if you choose not to have an iDevice in the future, you no longer have any way of accessing your iBooks collection (or at least the ones with DRM). A jail-broken device, it might be said, is no longer an 'iDevice' in the usual sense, so one might expect some stuff like this to happen, whether it is due to Apple's design or not.
