Common Sense In The Wonderful World of Warez

Ah, the weird, twisted world of software piracy. Installous (a free app for jailbroken iPhones that lets you grab pirated versions of iPhone apps) has declared war on Mega (a service that does the same thing, except they charge money).

The created an app called Grabulous (you with me so far?) that makes all the apps on Installous freely available. The rationale:

“Grabulous should be saluted and applauded by consumers AND devs. This is common sense, it’s not cracking , it’s not hacking. Paying for cracked apps is a crime against common sense.”

Someone needs to help me sort out the 2009 definition of “common sense.” Nonetheless, it makes for very entertaining reading.
