[LazyGamer]PS3 Hacker GeoHot Attacks Sony with Hip-Hop - Page 15

post #141 of 256
All of the people in love with this moron keep forgetting that his exploit causes irreparable damage to the security of the OS, either that or they won't acknowledge the truth.

Geohot has essentially opened the gateway to destroy PSN online gaming. Yet everyone here (and 99.999999% of them) that says he's such a hero never even used Linux on their PS3. This is something Sony CANNOT fix without issuing new hardware.

There's just no winning with morons as your customers.

How are you supposed to install it if you can't run unsigned code without jailbreaking? rolleyes.gif

Aham.. And your point is?

There is no excuse for a company to take away initially advertised features.

Sure there is. If it poses a security threat to the personal data of other people, for instance, or allows a large hole in security, the company has every right, consider it's THEIR software, not yours. You buy the hardware, you license the Software. End of story.

It does not open the ability to pirate apps that are already on the app store like the PS3 "jailbreak" allows pirated games to be played. Without jailbreaking an iPhone, you can still just as easily pirate the apps that cost money. Jailbreaking the iPhone doesn't make it any easier to do so. This makes me wonder; why haven't the developers stepped into this battle? Activision, where are you?

if you run pirated iphone apps, you've hacked your iPhone.

To be fair, no other console maker has nowhere near the amount of similar issues. Both Wii and XBox have been hacked but nobody seems to have been sued so far, and unsurprisingly, nobody is making a big fuss.

I'm just making the assumption that there's nothing in the PS3 that would make its user base more "moron" than that of the others.
