Re: Whats up with PSN?
what I meant by "this is no different then people "rooting" or "jailbreaking" their phones"
is that rooting your phone also gives you the option to "side-load" apps from questionable sources, just like piracy.
geohot "hacking" "jailbreaking" "unlocking" ps3 is no different then doing it to your phone, its your hardware, you should be able to use in what ever way you want. What other people use it for that is a different story, will it be someone loading apps in their phone from torrents, or playing pirated games.
the difference is how company reacted, Sony reacted in shameful, arrogant ahole kind of way, WE SUE YOU, DIE PUNK.
now imagine if Google, Apple (I believe apple did, but to much lesser extent), Microsoft, Nokia, Motorala, HTC etc...) would use phone users for jailbreaking or rooting their phones. Can you image the chaos?
