Gay jokes and quasi witty punchlines don't make anyone smarter.

Nor do they make points besides "Haha look at me!"

Playstation cannot close the security hole with new firmware. It's just not possible. Developers are now worried because their games will be easily pirated. Customers are worried because they'll face waves of cheaters and phishing scams.

You can argue that Geohot's hack hasn't done any damage but that's far from the truth. Sony wouldn't be in such a huff if it didn't. People were hacking using USB thumb-drives before and Sony didn't launch a massive legal suit against any of them. Why then, do you suppose they are now? The answer is quite simple if you actually read what the security hole does and not just take what all the kiddies are saying.

And again, don't try and use the DMCA act in this. It has nothing to do with consoles and solely includes phones.

What you, I, or GeoHot thinks is "fine" is completely irrelevant to the case.
this is why theres trial by jury....if your stealing food to feed your starving children the punishment should go in your favor, unless of course everyone is a senseless hard ass (AHEM)...


5 years probation for murder...since he committed murder he shouldve got 10 years at the very LEAST, and he never was incarcerated for murder..wheres all that "in the legal" world garbage come in at? theres tons of cases where "legal" world goes out the window when you have exceptional situations..

Sony is handling this all wrong and digging their own grave

Except Sony didn't sexually abuse Geohot or his PS3. So...where does your video even come into this? There's no "exceptional circumstance" here to even consider. Makes no sense.

Wait, so Apple approved an App that enables App piracy? I severely doubt that.

Kind of an example, it's not available in ANY PS3 now, not just Slims.

That was released after the DCMA iPhone alteration was made from what I can tell, that article was two months after the only link I can see of the DCMA thing.
And your own link proves you wrong:

Yes, that app was on the official Apple App store, it was $20 and has disappeared and reappeared several times through the years. If you read the article, you'll see that the piracy hole was a huge mistake of Apple. That September 2010 article is just a site that found out out about it when it was old news, and actually I'm pretty sure it's sites like that one that made Apple aware of the app.

That's not even an advertisement. That's a user's manual, just like Sony argued in court. Court decided "complainants have failed to bring evidence of any advertisement of the OtherOS feature. Instead, they have combined bits and pieces of lines from third party articles and the User Manual."

I think you've misunderstood. How does my link prove me wrong? I've BEEN saying that you CAN download pirated copies paid iPhone apps for free without jailbreaking. I think you're misunderstanding me on that.
