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.

Argh. I am so annoyed by you selfish little pr*cks who just want to place blame on anyone they can instead of blaming the people who are actually responsible.


Jesus. So much for being civil. Look, this will send out a message to stop stealing bread and butter from developers pockets used to feed families. We live in a capitalistic society. Once we reach a Utopian / resource based society where the basic needs to all humans are fulfilled, I will conform to "your ways". Until then, I'm allowed to have an opinion; right or wrong. No need to personally bash someone.

Anyways, back to playing Hard Corps Uprising. ;)

Well, in this capitalist society, the capitalist will sell you something, promising certain features, then take those features away after you paid for it. Just like they did with the games you whine about. You're misplacing blame on hackers instead of the people who don't deliver the service they sold you.

Jesus. So much for being civil.
Tone trolling right out of the gate, eh?

But really, if you don't like people on the internet criticizing your position, go complain to the power company; it makes just as much sense as your current position.

Look, this will send out a message to stop stealing bread and butter from developers pockets used to feed families.
By the looks of the situation, you're in a far safer position if you're a pirate than if you're trying to help others reclaim stolen features.

What "bread and butter" did Hotz steal from you and your family? How in the hell is re-enabling OtherOS and homebrew possibly going to affect your paycheck?

Good lord, the Stupid is with you today.

This is something I often see people claiming, and I seriously can't fathom WHY it is such a popular "argument." Don't people understand the difference, do they somehow really think that running Linux on your PS3 equates piracy, or what?

I mean, the fact is that homebrew is by very definition software made by people in their spare time, for free, and only for their and/or others' enjoyment, and it takes nothing away from commercial products unless you count it as competition, and even then competition has never been a bad thing. And running Linux? Well, since Sony isn't providing OtherOS functionality anymore then there isn't anyone losing their job anyways with people releasing other ways of running Linux on the PS3.

Good lord, the Stupid is with you today.


I quite like this comment, I feel tempted to take it as my next signature ;)
