I’m not sure if I should call this a nice way to make a living, but a student from George Mason University just landed an interview with the Washington Post simply because he’s into the business of Jailbreaking, and making real money out of it.
Kevin Lee has just become famous because he’s currently making an as much as $50,000 a year by Jailbreaking an average of 30 to 40 iOS devices per day. Enough money to even have his own Craiglist ad about all the services he provided.
I know this sounds kind of lame to most of us geeks, but you’d be amazed at how daunting the Jailbreak process can be to the average user. Surely all the Dev-Team tools to Jailbreak and Unlock iOS devices are free, but it seems most people either don’t know, or don’t mind paying top dollar for having somebody else do it for them.
