Before you guys post the BIG news, make sure it cannot be patched by the ps3 devs, otherwise all hard work, gone to the pooper. Regarding geohot, kudos to this fella, hope he does well or at least points the community in the right direction. Theres alot of potential within him, hopefully alot more time to waste.
I wish i didnt slack off in my pc programming class, perhaps could of helped you guys out.
For PS3 Devs; Why do they see ps3 hacking as a big threat? I do understand it leads to lot of bootleg cds, but lets face it, do you buy the worst games anyway? I will still buy the good old games that i like and play (cod4/bf/gt etc), but if the games are crap, none is going to buy them in the end.
Anywho, waiting for the big news, hopefully its as big as we are all hoping for and good luck to all devs, and big thanks for donating your time for such a great cause.
Let's not forget George is very dedicated to a hacking goal, like he said sometimes he becomes obsessed, staying up all night to work on the iphone for example (and a total of over 500 hours work). He's a great guy. Maybe he will find a way around certain complications with getting inside the PS3. Looking forward to the BIG news!

@PS3 DEV team: just don't release anything that could compromise the future of a hacked ps3.
A few things I would like to make clear. For starters, we have never, ever released anything that would compromise the future of a hacked PS3, it has always been other sites, or other lamers that have. After all, only a handful of hacked PS3's is not really worth it!
Furthermore, like I said earlier, I want to stress the fact that, although being BIG, it is not a hack.
Finally, there has been a slight delay, and more information about it will come in the middle of next week (sorry about that guys!)
