The Power of Gen (DI)Y

You may have read that some Gen Y twerp just made $25mill by hacking an iPhone. I confess I had a genuine “WTF?” (as we say over here) moment when I read this. According to the Globe & Mail, 17 year old New Jersey student George Hotz sold a hacked iPhone on eBay for $25mill? “I started working on it the day it came out,” he told The Globe and Mail Friday after posting a complex step-by-step guide to unlocking the device. Any comments relating to “he needs to get out more” have been effectively silenced! Ah well, good luck to him.

UPDATE: I now learn that he actually received a Nissan 350Z as barter … just hope he didn’t flunk Driver’s Ed …
