i just wonder what hes doing with the rest of that $$$ that got donated through paypal for "legal fees" i think he said he was going to donate what was left, but come on....who really knows how much he had anyways....maybe thats why he doesnt care about his case and fighting Sony to the DEATH like we all wanted, its the fact hes sitting on a fat bank account because of the whole thing. Who knows either, wAY THE iDevices need your help GeoHot! Glad this was over also. But no victory for modders and jailbreakers....now what.

The only problem with this lawsuit is that Apple might use this as a example to go after Jail breakers.

I think Apple will still allow Jailbreaks for Apple Products. If you've never had a iPhone or iPad or iTouch or Even the Apple TV, then you don't really know exactly what jail breaking means for those in the Jail breaking community. I personally will continue to jail break my Apple product till either A. They allow total customization of my iphone or B.I Get tired of it. It's not even about downloads, it's all about being able to customize a product that you worked or saved for. That's like saying you can't customize your Mustang or Corvette or WRX or Honda cause if ya wanted to mod your car you would have bought the next model up instead of the Stock Car. It really comes down to It being your Product and that you paid for it.It is Not by our Hands that things Change, BUT rather our Interventions that change ourselves.

I intend to boycott Sony and I'll explain in great detail why, if I'm ever in any conversation about PSPs, PS3s, TVs or any other product they make.We're all just toymakers in the game of life.

Corporate personhood is an abomination that should be deleted and corruption and regulatory capture should be punished.Jesus will come and deliver the 5.0 Apple FW. Jailbreak soon after, just wait a "few days" more.

I don't own a PS3, and I never will... I do, however, own a PSP (3000). Yes, it is hacked, running 6.20GEN-B4 (Permanent) Custom Firmware.
As much as I would love to explain my opinion on Sony and my rights as the OWNER of the hardware, I wont.
