I love Tom & Jerry. I think there’s no “too old” when talking about those two immortal cartoon characters. When I heard that some people were trying to ban them because “violence,” I saw red. Those people deserve to be shot in their knees and left in the middle of the desert! Anyway, you probably ask yourselves about the connection between Apple and Tom & Jerry, so here it is – I think Apple and those involved in jailbreaking the iPhone are playing a cat and mouse game.

To make it clear, here’s how it works – as soon as those jailbreaking guys get closer to jailbreaking the current iPhone sofware, BAM! Apple strikes with a new one! After all, they kept releasing updates for over a year now, but no copy/paste feature has been added yet, so don’t tell me “Apple is listening to its customers,” I won’t buy that! They may be listening to them in other cases, but not now!

These being said, let’s take a look at the iPhone software update 2.2.1, released only a few hours ago by Apple… since the official iPhone page still shows 2.2 as being the last firmware available, which makes it even more interesting.

The iPhone software update 2.2.1 is as large as 246.4MB, and it is said to “improve the general stability of Safari,” as well as being able to fix “an issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll.”

On the other hand, the iPod Touch owners updating their software will take advantage of the fixes above, but they’ll also have one less issue to worry about – some Apple Losless files that had problems until now will work fine from now on.

As you probably figured out already, the iPhone software update 2.2.1 will work with both iPhone and iPod Touch generations, and performing the update is done as always – fire up iTunes 8, connect the device, select it, and click “Check for Update,” then “Download and Install,” followed by a few beers, until the process is done.

Ta-taaa! …and the cat and mouse game goes on, and on, and on…
