Legal And so Sony's crusade against Playstation 3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz continues. After Sony getting all of Geohot's computers and access to server logs and personal details from many of his websites and social media accounts, Sony has now been given access to Geohot's PayPal account, and all information within it - including of the people he has had financial dealings with.

Your attitude is disgusting. He was re-enabling features that were ADVERTISED BY SONY when it was released.

I was using it as a COMPUTER in edition to a gaming machine which was part of the marketing. Instead of directing your anger at Sony who took away marketed features that SOME PEOPLE PAID FOR without adequate information to end users that it would be REMOVED (otherOS)you directed it at an individual that was trying to restore my RIGHTS as part of my purchase (OtherOS).

If devices are merely leased and we do not own them then this should be much more obvious when it is purchased. Features should not be implemented,marketed,sold and then REMOVED.

Get a clue you simple gamer.
