The party is almost over.

I was thinking the same thing as Daring Fireball...
... if you have the urge to hack around on your iPhone, you might as well do so now, as I strongly suspect that this week’s imminent iPhone software update is going to render inoperable the existing ways of hacking/jailbreaking the iPhone. Notice how no one’s yet figured out how to install or modify the software on the iPod Touch? Whatever Apple’s doing on the Touch in this regard, I expect them to begin doing on the iPhone this week. (I’d love to be proven wrong.)

So would I, dude, so would I. But we won't be.

From what I've read, the new update will brick all unlocked/hacked iPhones. After applying the update, it just displays "Incorrect SIM". Even after the user goes and gets a fresh SIM.

Yeah, that's true for unlocked phones, that is, ones that work without AT&T. For phones like mine, you just lose all the third-party apps.

Which is a PITA, as I had finally--FINALLY!--understood the appeal of eBooks.
