    Inside you, all around you
    they keep saying bushing is in euro, how is he in the US? Sony fault

    wow this lawyer of "geohot" is doing fantastic with defending him, if geohot wins, hacking consoles will be legal and we wont have to be hinding in our basements till were 40, nah just kidding,

    but it will be a major leap for hackers, giving the end users their rights "WE OWN THE MACHINE WE BOUGHT NOT YOU (COMPANY)"

    Well, I think it's clear who's won. I can understand why sony tried, but that doesn't mean they had a shred of a chance of winning this case.

    Holy sh1t, Sony's grasping at straws more than Pheonix Wright ever could. This is just pathetic. Seriously, Geo1Hot?

    To sum this up, Sony's basically saying that geohot broke the law by using his ps3 in a way that made Sony angry. Where does it say that it's illegal to use a computer that you bought legally in a way that the manufacturer doesn't like? Who really owns your system anyways?
