Yea I know those words were sarcastic but I'm talking about the bigger picture. The dude seems to have done a full 180. He went from total anti sony to now shutting up. Yes he's joking with those lines, but the proof is in the pudding. He settled, and Sony themselves reported on it so I guarantee they won. He bowed down, and did it with other people's money.

If Sony actually reported on the settlement instead of keeping it hush hush than that's a good indication they got what they wanted. They seemed happy in their blog post. He seems to be content as well in his words. Plus he willingly agreed to an injunction. If that doesn't tell you something is up your blind.

As of 4/11/11, I am joining the SONY boycott. I will never purchase another SONY product.
I encourage you to do the same.
There is much more to come on this blog.
BTW, one thing that does really bother me. The donations Geohot received. He specifically stated he had enough to retain more legal help. We have no way of knowing how much in legal fees he had accumulated but I think it's fair to say he's got extra money setting there for his personal use. That's not right!
You don't know the conditions of the settlement. Maybe Sony wanted to get this behind them just as much as Geo. Since the recent attacks to PSN.
lol Sorry I don't trust him at all. He said he wouldn't settle unless the conditions were met. Well he obviously buckled or their would be some type of announcement other than sony saying "it's settled we got what we wanted." Call me paranoid or pessimistic but I've learned to trust that feeling over the years and it's never steered me wrong. I'm not gonna stop now.

On the other, I am inclined to agree with almost all the theories so far. Unless we get details, the fingers all point to the only possible conclusions. $ony is likely going to have him fix their security issues. Paycheck or not...most likely not. I'm sure its part of the settlement for him to do it for free, but who knows...
What I can say is that at the time he asked for it, I was down on my luck financially speaking so I was unable to assist. Had it have been different, I would have sent everything I had. I am EXTREMELY glad I sent nothing. Personally, I feel by him accepting that money he was essentially going to bat for all of us.
What I can say is that my PS3 was the last $ony product I will ever purchase. If it goes tits up..f*** it. I won't bother replacing it. I hope someone else comes up with a console to put this one to pasture.
Pretty sad indeed. $ony, why don't you join those dumbass CEO at GoDaddy and go hunt some Elephants too. I mean, he's got the slaughter and you have the lack of moral fortitude. I'd say you make a great team.
Jeez, some people are getting really bent outta shape here!
I couldn't give a shit if he made mega bucks what concerns me more is him being a security adviser for $ony! Still, he's one in a world of many!
Very, very badly written news. Sad and mad smilies?
You do realize this is actually a win for Hotz?
All he agreed to is not to publish any more information about hacking the PS3 console.
The court has not ruled the information as illegal. Yes, Sony may be making such statements, but it's just huffin' & puffin'. The court has the last word. And ironically, the court had no word about that subject, since there was no official ruling.
Sony didn't win this one. They didn't prove Geohot did anything wrong.
They didn't prove the information was illegal.
Geohot can't say anything more about it. But he doesn't need to, since the info is already all over the web. Win.
Now, instead of discussing Geohot, you should all turn towards Graf. The dude might need more donations or something. Make an effort to pull him out of the fire now. Geohot might've kickstarted the scene again(along with failoverflow), but Graf was the driving force for most of the Linux work. Get on him.
