"For the record, Kelly has already worked at Hooters. It was how she paid her way through hack school and goes some way to explaining her headline-writing style."

Backups my ass
Consoles are hacked to play pirated games.
Good for Microsoft
It's about damn time. It's a shame that none of the money being spent on new "clean" 360s will go to the developers whose products were stolen by the modders. If the 600,000 user figure is correct, that's a huge chunk of lost revenue even if each user only stole one game.
Nice work FireEye

Punative damages for the win
It doesn't have to be *actual* damages. Not sure why everyone is focused on that. I applaud this decision. Let the kid go file for bankruptcy, he'll enjoy the next 7 years of not being able to get credit, having huge security deposits for rentals, and so on. And yes, he'll still have to pay off his student loans.
The kid got what he deserved. Quit stealing shit and claiming it's justified. Or at the very least, when you get caught, don't cry foul.
Profit from theft? Never!
So much for "ideals". Damn right I'd sell out for $7 million. Not that I'd try to make a profit on theft to begin with...
It's called ODBC. .Net has a perfectly good provider for it.
@Microsoft: Open up the source for System.Data.Oraclewhatever. Let someone else mess with it.
Smells like bullshit to me.
Sounds a lot like the open source "Give away the software and sell t-shirts' line of crap.
Paying to be able to steal content. Just wow.
