    I too have been with CDMA for most of my time, but GSM always seemed more...hackable. More user friendly I mean to say. What with all the sim card swapping and you can use any phone and most no contract plans are GSM, it's truly the people's protocol...Until now! I don't think this will make much of a difference. At least not for a year or so. WEP is easily hackable now and how many people either A. Know this or B. Have the care to do it.

    The government already listens into our phone calls, why does it matter if a few lonely hackers do? It's not like I named my dog after my social security number and I go to the vet frequently.

    Well, they did in the Bush administration on what they said were "selected people" (like "supposed" terrorists, but it was actually doing journalists and the like). Odds are most governments do it, they just don't say.

    Hah. You seem like the only dumbass around here. Even if the PS3 is hacked it would be impractical considering that they use Blu-Ray disc's and you'll be downloading 10 GB files.

    No hackers as of now hacked the PS3, which I'm sure you already know. Just don't be a bitch about it and complain. Read here.

    Edit1: Obvious troll is obvious. Come on. That has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

    10 GB is "shit" as a matter of fact for people who live in countries with caps on their internet. Full Single-Layered Blu-Ray disc can hold 25 GB. Full Double Layered can hold 50 GB. Would you like to download a 25/50 GB file?

    That isn't the point, anyway. You complained that they didn't hack the PS3 yet and called the hackers "dumbass". Betcha $900 that "those hackers" are smarter than you. That's also not the point. That was a stupid comment you made before. End of Story.
