Sony PS3 Jailbreak Hacker Bankrupted, May End Up in Jail

No comments:

Although Geohot was able to settle with Sony over the PS3 jailbreak, other hackers have not fared as well.

Graf_chokolo is a hacker who worked hard to bring linux back after Sony removed the install option from the PS3. He has run out of money to fight Sony's lawyers and may end up in jail as a result.

Hi guys, no money left anymore. Going to jail soon probably because i cannot pay court costs.

But i’m ready to stand up for everything i said and go to jail for that too. It’s not important to win, more important is to show them that we are ready to fight, that they cannot scare me off easily. Yeah, i’m ready to go to jail for my believes and my principles.

Most of people probably think that all computer and kernel hackers are weak kids, hiding in a cellar, eating pizza whole day, writing software and looking for attention :-) Maybe, but that’s NOT me. And i will get out eventually and continue my work. My work means very much to me.

Those looking to contribute to Graf's defense can do so here.

Best Buy to Match Apple's Back to School Promo?

No comments:



Best Buy will match Apple's Back to School special by giving a $100 Best Buy Gift Card to eligible customers, according to MacRumors.

Apple recently launched their 2011 Back to School promotion. Instead of the typical iPod giveaway, Apple is now offering a $100 iTunes/App Store gift card instead. We've been told that Best Buy will be matching this promotion with a $100 Best Buy gift card for the same qualifying customers. This is an unadvertised promotion, so customers will have to ask for it specifically.

If you can verify this offer let us know in the comments!
