iPhone and GPLv3 problems

From http://forum.roughlydrafted.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=1085 relating to the anti-Tivoization in GPLv3 and how that affects the iPhone:
"Well,
there is a paradox here. Remember back in WWDC 2008, they talked about
how the "task manager" is bad. Another reason is that it is too
technical for the average user. The average user will most likely blame
the phone instead. And add the fact that the average user don’t care
about "openness", but FOSS does, and get the issue?"
And believe me, that actually has been happened. Remember Palm?
