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 once wanted to buy a PS3 because it could run other OS. When they removed that feature, I changed my mind.

I expectantly watched this situation to unfold and see if I would ever be able to install another OS and finally buy a PS3.

Now, I just say: no more Sony products for me. Of any kind.

There are other companies that produce same quality products, cheaper. As for the PS3, it's just a console. I don't care anymore.
