He can enjoy it. You on the other hand need to be concerned about two of yours.

good. the PS3 can already access all ISPs. Jailbreaking is only for phone lock-ins...

Yeah jailbreaking was a term for phones only not consoles. What these hackers were doing was wrong and illegal. If you wanna hack your console no one can stop you (so go for it), but once you try to spread it to all, then you are breaking the law. That's exactly what these hackers are/were doing, spreading exploits and hacks for all to use, even those not tech smart and wouldn't of hacked/modded their console to begin with.

Why would the PS3 need jailbreaking? I think the PS3's name was thrown in for hits.
