good luck with the door to door
If they want to know who in California donated, I think SONY are going to be busy knocking on quite a few doors.
Something Anonymous Coward said earlier though...
"...clearly Sony are looking to see if GeoHot accepted any donations for opening the PS3 to piracy..."
Is it possible SONY are trying to accuse him of taking monies from another large company such is Nicrosoft or Mintendo to throw a spanner in SONYs works? and therefor they are saying he would have been doing it for profit and not for his own personal use, which would then take the link to the iPhone jailbreak ruling out of the equation?
I donated when the legal fund request went up. Im just glad I dont live in the US.
Im also pleased I didnt bother buying a Wii.
I've had my PS3 from day one (uk) and was tempted buying a Wii for that little extra emersion into the games.
This looks amazing and I cant wait for it to come out!
A particular word from the English dictionary, specifically, "the" offends me. Please refrain from using this word in any and all publications, games, songs, thoughts, nightmares and daydreams.
Failure to do so will cause no harm at all to anyone, and in particular, no fluffy non-existent fairytale creatures will be harmed in ones reading of such for-mentioned publications.
This message will not self destruct, ever, and once again, please... NOBODY CARES! RELEASE LITTLEBIGPLANET NOW FFS!
Jesu.... oops, nearly offended someone there!!!!!!!
...I wonder if the singe/songwriter has had to employ bodyguards after the release of the information that he/she has used some "words". :-0
I think this is a cross between a good and totally ridiculous idea. Good in the sense that the idea is to "force parents to disconnect from the office and reconnect with their family" but totally stupid in that parents "will be asked to hand their device into one of five “PDA drop off zones”". My god! First of all, im pretty sure I wouldn't want to leave my phone/PDA/PDA phone with anyone I didnt know, let alone someone whose main job it is, is to dish out candy floss. And second, most of the time, its been a while since parents were at school... with the obvious exception of the 15yr gym slip mums. Having your pda 'confiscated' until home time seems a little over the top.
Russell Barnes, Divisional Director for the Alton Towers Resort, said that the park is “prepared to take drastic action to ensure that parents really leave their work behind”.
Drastic action would be to have snipers shoot the devices out of peoples hands if they were seen using them within 50 feet of another person. "Excuse me sir/madam, can you, for the benefit of the future of man kind and the possible reversal of all things global warming related, as well as the fact that you almost got ran over by three dodgems, please hand your device in to the nearest spotty youth in the stupid looking costume"... doesnt have the same effect as a sniper would.
