It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored.

This is major lose to the jailbreak community as a whole.

But just think now we have someone on the inside.

I guess Apple figures if we can't stop him, We might as well hire him.

Good luck to comex and don't forget where you came from.

Everybody has a price, even though he's just an intern.

I wouldn't consider him a man on the inside. I'm sure he'll have to sign a confidentiality agreement and he's not going to want to risk the consequences of leaking information to hackers.

I think this could be a good thing, who know's what developers like, Comex will bring to the table. I'm looking forward to what these guys can do. Look at Peter Hajas -the man behind MobileNotifier, he's doing well.

Cant this potently ruin the Jailbreak community? Will the rest of the Dev Team still produce a jailbreak?
I Love the iPhone but without the jailbreak, it is not the phone for me. I use it for functionality, not for stealing apps, (except for 2 that I used once..)

No jailbreak for iOS5 means that I would probably jump ship. (or play with other phones for a little while)

There are many gifted individuals out there that have potential to replace the Dev team members who have moved on. Only time will tell.

No. I wouldn't worry about that at all. There are plenty of other iPhone hackers that will continue to work on jailbreaks.
