Games I've often harped on Apple for its policy regarding jailbreaking, but of course, Apple isn't the only company engaging in such practices. We already talked about Motorola, and now, we have Sony - already a company with a checkered past when it comes to consumer rights. As it turns out, Sony don't want you jailbreaking your their Playstation 3.

If only there were companies out there which had enough vision to see this as an *opportunity*.

In other words, they can see that there are people wanting to tinker around with hardware, and they'd think "ok, now there's an opportunity here. This could be an interesting market. How can we build on this? How can we help them out and grow the market?

Precisely. Where is the console-equivalent to the GP2x? A little box for $300 or so, running Linux with HDMI-out that I can put in my entertainment center, and run with it whatever the hell I want?
