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.

You lack imagination. Even the US Army itself were planning to use PS3 clusters.

Each single cluster taking 1,500-2,000 PS3 Fats + spares out of retail distribution channels.

Each console sold at a loss.

With no return to Sony from video game sales, Blu-Ray, or online services.

and cannibalizing the market for any commercial cell-based HPC product.

That is not a "sustainable business model," to quote one of the geek's favorite phrases.
