Legal "Sony has won its request for a temporary restraining order in its PS3 jailbreak case against Geohot and fail0verflow, despite a jurisdictional technicality. At the same time, the judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California has allowed Sony to keep the lawsuit in San Francisco. The restraining order forbids the jailbreak team from distributing or linking the jailbreak procedure, or encouraging others to jailbreak or hack their PS3 or PSN. They've also been ordered to turn over any computers or storage media used to create the jailbreak to Sony's lawyers." Land of the free fail.

I hope they turn over a VIC-20 and a 5.25 inch floppy with a copy of the code on it. Lt them try to prove that wasn't the machine he used to do the job.

I was almost thinking that I might buy a PS3 too, since maybe I could run homebrew (and Linux) on it again. Never mind, Sony, I'll just keep my money.
