  1. Sony's Kevin Butler, a fictional character portrayed by actor Jerry Lambert in the "It Only Does Everything" advertising campaign for the PlayStation 3, today accidentally retweeted the USB dongle ID generator key, also used for PS3 security circumvention. The tweet has since been removed, after someone from Sony probably told him what he just did.

    Would it be fair to challenge Sony to go a full week without making itself look stupid or petulant?

    If you can't beat them, join them? Maybe that's Sony's new approach.

    That's not the actual code GeoHot made. I know this because one of my friends has the code...and this isn't it. Engadget and Techspt are a little smarter than that, lol.

    Lol.
    Though I wonder how hard they'll try to keep that key off the internet.
    Everyone knows that's impossible.
     
  24. Can I repost the key here in the comments section???

    Sony are jokes BTW.

    I'm not the one that has it, though I would be pleased to answer the door and talk to them. I have a lot to say to them...they won't get the info they came for, but they'll get plenty of other info :p
