    So,


    after seeing that ugly blue plastic Jailbreak dongle for sale...

    [​IMG]

    another silvery one caught my eye:

    It's not quite so ugly. Quite classy actually.

    I am not sure which one is the "clone" and which one is the "original"...

    Anyway, I'll go for the nice silvery one!

    The second one is the original and will set you $140.

    The first one may suck, but it will set you $50.

    I'm not suppossed t be doing this, but:
    "set"?

    Didn't you mean cost?

    Btw, you have it easy out there... here in my country are trying to cash in for at least 3 times it's actual value... which honestly isn't very cool -_-U

    Though shortened, I think he meant to type "set you back" which is an English colloquialism for "will cost you".

    The higher priced one's distributor claims they have an update available for the latest 3.4.2 firmware. Since they haven't even shipped the originals out yet, that claim remains to be verified.

    Personally I'm waiting for my Teensy board.

    Yeah, that [​IMG] Dunno if I could actually use it without "back", but I seem to recall you could also use it without. Oh well. Enough OT [​IMG]

    Why do you care how a tiny USB looks?

    Apple is an entire company that makes products for people who care about how something looks [​IMG] Plus fanboys on both sides spent zillions of hours trying to convince themselves their console looked better than the competitor.

    Ok but for a piracy device, if you get the same thing for less than half the price, why would somebody pay over double because "it looks cooler"

    Plus PS3 Slim = no usb ports on the back of the console, so your ugly USB stick is left sticking out the front of your console [​IMG]

    Still, I wouldn't really care that much, I would just go with whatever was cheapest.

    Please don't start an anti-apple flamewar. This really isn't the place for it.
