Article: Geohot Donates Your Legal Donations to the EFF - $10,000 in Total –
The global economy being what it is I'm kind of surprised that folks donated that amount to GEO in the first place. To have him turn around and donate it back to "the cause" is a pretty good gesture, though with all that's going on in Japan I think the money could have been put to "better" use.
Non the less, good show George!
10,000 donated. 100,000 kept for himself. Now that is a nice profit.
You'd be surprised how quickly small donations add up. And I'm inclined (hopeful?) to think that people donate more willingly when they don't feel like they're paying for a service. Geohot has delivered the goods time and time again (whether or not people like him) so helping the guy out with a few dollars wasn't a big deal.

"Will you be continuing your work on Sony products anonymously?
Nah. As much as I don't respect the goons at Sony, I do respect the court.""
is that just "the correct answer"? or he mean it?
Well, it *was* settled outside of court, wasn't it?

I believe the transaction fee is about 3% of the total which would be about $300. Charities are discounted to 1.5%. Either way, it's not much.

im thinking nothing he chickened out im sure that he would of used some of that money for his own personal spend up ill be sure never to get Geoscamed
the ps3 scene is looking like its F**KED anyway there is still no 3.60 custom firmware and games coming out like portal 2 with 3.60 keys so what can you do nothing most likely
theres that annonymous group who are far to public in there plan and so sony hears ahead oh these guys are guna come be dickheads in stores so we will just shut the store down for a while
this scene fails compared to the xbox 360 and past psp scene
I am sure there will be a way around the keys. There is no 3.60 cfw because as many have said there is no reason for it. There was nothing valuable added in the 3.60 firmware update. If it added something like cross game voice chat or custom soundtracks to all games then you would have had everyone working on it. Perhaps now with games coming out where it is 100% needed we will definitely see a hack for it. As for Sony stores closing and not being a big deal......sure they do not get news publicity for it now BUT sony closing stores = loss of revenue....that is a big deal for those stores. As well as employees not getting payed for the day.
