Gizmodo: Prisoners are finding much better uses for their IT classes' computer mice, plugging them into Playstations by USB, and rewiring the ends to power up their cellphones.
in reality this is a old procedure and VERY old news, which also includes using the 360 and portable music systems.....NOT JUST PS3 flamebait
*sighs* How the heck is this hacking? And, they could use this method on any computer with USB ports.
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.
I just had to say that.
Wait, prisoners get cell phones and PS3s? What the fuck?
Yeah, They have better lifestyle than you. So gear up and sign up for prison.
True only down side is the odd chance of man rape in the showers but a free ps3!!!!! may be worth the risk hmmmmm -_-
"True only down side is the odd chance of man rape in the showers" LOL God bless america
Man, you beat me to it. Exactly what I was gonna say. +1 agree, +1 bubble.
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.
why, they were just some kids that smoked some pot.
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.
Apparantly, whoever submitted this story can't read.
I use my mouse to hack a ps3? what!!
please go back to your mental hospital -_- dont lick the windows on your way out
3 meals a day...a bed to lay my head...and a ps3 with a flatscreen......they got it better than alot of people right now and why...because they sliced your grandmothers throat for the 7 dollars in her purse.
Why the f**k do they have access to PS3s to begin with they suppose to be punished... not at a resort.
Damn, they do things differently in the UK. Personally, I feel if the family of the offender or the offenders savings don't cover the costs of jailing them for the duration of their sentence, they should be killed. So tired of tax dollars being used on the lame and useless. And I'm Canadian...peace and love FTW? LOL
This ps3 hacking has gone out of control. If i were sony, I would just drop support for such a dead console and move onto ps4.
Nothing from your post made any sense at all.
Glad you aren't Sony...
Piss off troll.
Cook County prison for instance is a much more awful place. Those are pound me in the ass federal prisons.
see i always thought that fed prison is the cuswhy place and state prison is the hell hole.
State prison is the Hell hole, the feds ain't shit
thanks for clearing that up. at least someone knows something.
You can have a good state prison and a good federal prison. Both have pound me in the ass type prisons.
i wonder if they have internet acess on these ps3's. They could prob just make a video/audio chat call right from the ps3 and not need the cell phone lol. They would need a PSeye or some kind of headset but worst case they could send msg's.
First Wesley Snipes stars in a new game, now he's hacking Ps3. Jail sounds fun.
