181w ago - Yesterday some videos were posted of GeoHot's iPad, iPhone, iPod coverage from Nuit Du Hack in Paris, and today we have some videos and a slideshow (PDF) of the PS3 hacks segment from the conference courtesy of malow82.
Forum user xrayglasses attended one of GeoHot's scheduled conferences, and stated the following to quote:
"He's booking for talks at 3 cons, I only got to see the one he just did in France. He's labeling his talks around PlayStation 3 security, and when he comes on basically talks about i-products for two hours with a mention of PS3 in the last 10 minutes, literally in the same details as his blog.
In videos of it on youtube, you can hear people there laughing when he integrates his ego into his talk. I don't think he realizes what a small fish he is in the RE community.
He even said publicly that he was contracted to reverse the iphone which really puts his level of intelligence into perspective considering the repercussion that has with anti-trust laws.."

He is right about the iOS scene. It is full of idiots who keep asking repeatedly why their device won't get hacked blah blah. The problem is, it's getting into the hands of the everyman, people who aren't into hacking. You can even look at the iPhone dev team blog and you'll see floods of comments about problems and such. I can see why he'd do the same for the PS3 scene. He put out a big part of how to get it done, it's just up to someone to finish it. Which no one has yet been able to do.
Just to clarify why people think Egosnot is egotistical and a hypocrite ... if you have time, read through this http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-hacks/inter-dev-relations-ps3-scene-109622.html . He refused to share what he found and instead of helping, he was barking orders ... just read it ... you will see. I think even his mom was on that thread telling him to play nicely and to stop being a "donkey's proctologist-entry"!!!!
