Go to the app store or iTunes and enter the word Jailbreak.
Either Apple is censoring this word or they don't like Thin Lizzy!

Looks like they missed a couple, but they're trying - it's rendered the same for some TV shows and other items as well.

Comex and planetbeing were discussing this on Twitter, and someone at Apple must have realized how asinine the censoring was, because everything appears to be back to normal:
It was very asinine indeed. I read somewhere that perhaps they intended this only for the app store section of the iTunes store and somehow it got out of control.

Then again, seeing as that, obviously, no official App store app even allows j*********g, it would still be asinine. If they have apps that are guides on or talk about (that unspeakable act), then it's their own fault for approving them in the first place (I haven't searched).

Asinine is my the word of the day! :D

Nice try trying to brush jailbreaking under the metaphorical carpet. Instead, it became an advert for the one thing they want to hide. LOL
