Meet Geohot, The Guy Who Unlocked The First iPhone And Hacked The Sony PS3

George Hotz, a.k.a. “Geohot” There is perhaps no name in the world of hacking as legendary as Geohot. George Hotz was the first person to unlock the original iPhone back in 2007. He was 17 years old at the time. He also released multiple jailbreaks, including “purplera1n” for the iPhone 3GS.

This post truly demonstrates that if you are a hacker you will be rewarded by the companies that spend million so you won’t hack a phone.  I think Apple went about this wrong way I think they were more interested in hiring this guy so they could think up new ways of blocking people like this from hacking their products.  I’d be interested in seeing how glorifying an illegal action is the right thing to do.  I mean you don’t go out and promote drunk driving why would you reward someone for hacking your own phone you’ve tried so desperately to lock down.  To me it just doesn’t make any sense.  I think there must be some kind of arterial motive behind glorifying an illegal action or maybe because I’m not a hacker.
