Now, correlation is not causation. It's possible that the parent's strong marriage does not *cause* the child's good prospects and performance, but rather that both are caused by some of the same socioeconomic factors

I like the idea that it's actually a reverse correlation- that stupid children with poor prospects and bad grades cause their parents' divorces.

I remember reading, back when this was all a thing, that the failure rates for locked iPhones during an update was right about even with the failure rates for unlocked iPhones, implying that the update process itself was responsible for the failures, and whether or not you unlocked or jailbroke your phone was immaterial to whether or not it was bricked. Unfortunately, I can't find that information, so I don't know if that was some sort of urban legend or not.

Personally, I jailbroke my iPhone once, then ultimately decided it wasn't worth the hassle of keeping up with the break/update cycle. And once they released apps, I sort of forgot about it all together.
