  • Jailbreaking Your PS3: All Fun & Games Until Your Online Gaming Is Ruined

    Sony’s trying its hardest to erase the PS3 Jailbreak hack from the Internet, but we all know that’s folly.

    Well look at that: it’s now legal to sell, advertise, and own any sort of PS3 Jailbreaking product in mighty Spain, the current European and world champions.

  • Tread Lightly When Embracing The Mac App Store

    Is there really any doubt the Mac App Store will be anything other than a huge hit when it debuts in 90 days? Seven billion downloads on the current App Store would suggest that Apple knows what it’s doing (and that people really love to slingshot cartoon birds into buildings). And the benefits of the App Store are clear: it’s an easy-to-use, one-stop source of safe, tested software. Read More
