Anyone knows who is George Hotz? Does the guy above looks some what familiar to you? It didn’t to me as well but I can explain a little more on this person. If you happen to Google around for his name, you are going to find that George Hotz is kind of popular. The shocking and geeky face you see right here can tell you straight away that he is some person with extreme passion in computer or technology stuff.
The History of George Hotz
He jail-broken the iPhone. What he did with the jail-broken iPhone was to enable the iPhone to use on other US carriers apart from AT&T Network. Remember when Steve Job mentioned about Apple selling 10,000 iPhones a day world wide? Well, George Hotz just made the 10,000 iPhone a day ready to be jail-broken if the user wanted to do so. But that was not all that he did.
He even jail-break the Sony Playstation 3 until the CEO of Sony decided to sue this kid for a lot of money. However, this is not a wise decision as I had said before, George Hotz is one hell of a super star. He has many supporters behind him especially when he was sued by Sony. As a result, Sony has to pay for all the things they did to George Hotz by losing millions of their customer’s account in the famous Sony data breach. As a result, you can’t stop these people from harassing and hacking your products. You can’t as well threaten or punish them as they will return in few folds. What you can do is follow the Facebook way.
You be friend with them. Just like what Facebook had just done, ally with George Hotz. There is a saying where if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. It appears that Facebook is taking that path now. Last but not least, there is a rumor that George Hotz is there to build the very first iPad Facebook application which Facebook still do not have one till now.
