How is this "Hacking" the PS3? All they're doing is plugging a USB mouse into one of the USB sockets to charge their phones.

Prison is a cosy place for people these days, some have consoles and Sky TV in their cell.

Personally I would let those fuckers rot in a hole, but that's me.

They dont just get given cell phones... they obviously get them smuggled in. they will run out sometime so all they are doing is charging them.
