That's the word going around considering neither side has taken the opportunity to speak about how far the injunction goes.

I don't think they'd take another chance with the next playstation or any product after the show they just put on...Would you?

Or they would drag on the legal fight in court so long that it was no longer possible for Geohot to continue litigating. The end result is the same however, Geohot is forever banned from developing or modding on Sony's products. To Sony the only question was how much money they needed to spend to get to that point.
Pretty much this, but I still can't help it but @ Sony. It wasn't even Geohot who cracked the PS3. It's an utter failboat in that regard. Geohot only applied the cracked keys in one aspect. The knowledge is out there in the wild, forever, thus Sony has done nothing in reality. They went after the wrong dude, and at the end, all they could say is hey man don't touch our stuffs again, plax!

Try cell phones?

Any partnered computer...

These are things that Geohot can never use for the rest of his life and this is a win?

IMO, it's a major loss...
Where does it say he can't use them? He said he join the Sony boycott.

...You settle in court...Have an injunction filed against you...10 minutes later you join a public boycot...Logic doesn't dictate anything to you?

I know a couple people working on the case and the "rumor" is the injunction is more than just the PS3.

A settlement requires an agreement on both sides.. I'm not sure if he would agree to something as ridiculous as that..

I just love the ignorance in hating something because of misunderstandings.

Not going to waste my time on these people who won't even research Anon, just decide to randomly hate it because they took drastic steps.

Let's be honest here.

Who need the PS3 when you have this?

Then Sony "won" in the same sense. Geohot can never develop for the PS3 again. A real winner.
