So, how is unlocking the PS3 any different again?
I fail to see how unlocking your PS3 is for anything other than 'personal use'. Just because the unlock grants you the ability to pirate doesn't mean it should be made illegal, unless you enjoy supporting Orwellian police tactics.
Ad Hominem attacks get you nowhere. That is why you are being childish. You can't separate your emotions from a discussion.
You made a claim. Now, it's put up or shut up time.
I'd like to see you make me shutup, tough guy. Again, congrats for ignoring the facts.
You're pretty awesome at that.
And again for about the millionth time in this thread, you're ignoring the fact that hacking in-game has become prevelant since the release of this exploit. And once again, ignoring the fact that the iPhone Jailbreak is for PERSONAL USE, and the PS3's is not intended for such, no matter what Geohot claims. If he were really not into the hacking and pirating side of this, he would have weighed out the pros and cons and realized that releasing the exploit wouldn't be for the greater good.
I really could care less about the piracy bit. Pirate all you want. But this exploit has caused a significant security hole in an online platform that's connected to millions, in which games are being hacked, and accounts are now easier to phish.
Good job! You've failed, yet again, to come to the logical conclusion for the sole benefit of your views! I wish I had some kind of award around here to give to you. Maybe a toilet flange... some astroglide... I dunno. Something. You really deserve it.
