Okay, I'm willing to suspend my disbelief for a minute. A few questions out of pure curiosity.

I hope this doesn't turn into a PS3 Hack scene where all the hacks are just complicated enough for the smart ones to give it a shot and then finally like Sony.. they just get rid of the OS itself.. in this case.. emulation.. but then that would kill android apps also!
Android apps were a hit because it's easy to get hold of the APK files.. Is this the same for iApps?
Just trust me.. Go public with the emulator app you've created and let people get their own apps.. In that way, you have nothing to do with the piracy issue.. just like RIM.. they were so aware of Android apps being easily available..
What you need.. is someone to create a converter like the APK to BAR? But I guess if you lead then everyone will follow!
You know what.. Just shift your base to India and you will get all the protection here! Edit:: and all the developer help to make RIM win!

Ok this is getting good, even the skeptics are having a good second look,
@businesscat can you at least give us some details as to your intensions? Whats next?
Have you got your app working on Android? What is it about PlayBook/QNX that made you showcase this platform?

Come on guys, if someone have something that amazing, why not share in the community. We'll believe that if we can sideload it on our own PlayBooks. Let's us see with our own hands! Apple lawyers!? Come on... there's a zillion ways to leak that with no Apple, just think about it. Money? You can monetize that easily... LOL... Its a fake for sure, that's why it will always have an excuse for releasing it. Come on, prove me wrong, I really would love to "pay my tongue", LOL

It is incredibly easy to get hold of the ipa files for ios apps. My ios apps are jus sitting inside a folder on my mac in plain view. Don't even need to dig it out or anything.
Though if I'm not mistaken, each app has a tag, something like meta data, of the itunes store account that downloaded the app. If you want to transfer it over to another laptop, you need to authorise the other mac before you can use the apps.
The question again, is that is it illegal to use an ios app on devices other than apple's? Even if I had paid for the apps?

Its as real as anything else. If @cat came on and tried to monetize it, I would be on the fake without proof camp. Custom hack tools for doing what you do, people do it all the time.
Mods changed the title and Kevin was checking out the background on this and yet he/she is still here.
Hack the planet!

If BB10 can sideload both Android and IOS apps - That's kind of a game changer. To say that no matter what platform you are on, if you become dissatisfied for any reason, you can easily move to BB and keep your applications that you've paid for. That would shake the foundations of the mobile world.Ad Lucem

I'd have to say congratulations to the developer on this.
I've mentioned before in other posts that Apple's competitive edge is their application library. The hardware itself isn't what people are paying for, it's the applications that you can run on it. The effect of something like this would be to cause Apple to drop their price and continue improving their hardware to maintain their market share.
RIM needs to contact this developer, have their legal team look over things, and get this legally integrated into BB10. I'd put that as a much more worthwhile use of money then any marketing they might do.
If Apple refuses to allow access to the app store by outside hardware, feasibly that might be something you could look at under anti-trust laws.
