[Geek] Geohot has not fled to South America, he’s on vacation

Sometimes reporting the news without all the facts to hand can end up blowing a story all out of proportion and being rather funny for the people or person involved. This is what has happened with the apparent desperate bid of Geohot to escape the grasp of Sony and its evil lawyers.

It has been widely reported in the last few days that George Hotz, a.k.a. Geohot has fled to South America rather than face up to the lawsuit started against him by Sony over the PS3 jailbreak solution.

@ BBC... US hacker denies fleeing justice BBC News

So he is going to take it like a man, good for him, I'm glad he is willing to duke it out, at least now he won't be considered some punk who ran...

Good for him!

It was the BBC's headline, not Sony. Quit your QQ'ing.

Well, at least he's gonna stay and fight. My opinion of him is better. Though I wonder if he used any donation money for that vacation?

What he says and what he actually did could be two different things. After all, he does infact have a PSN account after swearing up and down he didn't, he opened up the PS3 for piracy even though he SAYS he's against it.

Read the same story on ARS.

Seems I owe you an apology Mr. Hotz.

Fight on good sir, fight on.

Well it is the users decision to install GeoHot's mod on the PS3 + it does help open up the open source community which Linux once did...

Albeit without being authorized by Sony mind you, which is why GeoHot is definitely in Hot Water and soaking up some cool waves probably right now, maybe he thinks he can win, who knows...
