    Sony's Getting Hacked

    The Sony PS3 console was "hacked" or more appropriately, jailbroken, by
    iPhone hacker, Geohot. He managed to reverse engineer his own
    Playstation 3 to run homebrew applications on it. And then later
    released the method to the public, through his site, geohot.com. Sony
    hit him with a lawsuit and demanded social media sites, including
    YouTube to hand over IP addresses of people who visited Geohot's social
    pages/videos. Paypal have granted access to Sony for them to view
    Geohot's PayPal account. The judge of the case has given permission to
    Sony to view the IP addresses of everyone who visited geohot.com. Sony
    are also after another group of hackers for the same case. The PS3 hack
    which GeoHot released can be compared to the "unlocking" of a phone
    (i.e. Once you purchase the phone, it's yours, you can do whatever it is
    you want with it.)
