Default Re: PS3 security hacked

George Hotz hacked Sony's PS3, and then told everyone how to do it. That pissed Sony off, and the company is taking him to court. Rival Microsoft is ready to play nice, though. With a gift.

Hotz, who also cracked the iPhone, blogged that he's keen to get a Windows Phone 7. And Brandon Watson, who according to his Twitter is an "entrepreneur on loan to Microsoft focused on getting our developer mojo back", tweeted this to the 21-year-old Hotz:

#geohot if you want to build cool stuff on #wp7, send me email and the team will give you a phone - let dev creativity flourish #wp7dev
Guess that's a good way to get out in front of any exploits or holes Hotz is bound to find as he sets out to jailbreak the Windows Phone. Better than, you know, taking him to court.

This is awesome.
