PlayStation 3 Cracked again.

One of the world’s most loved console Sony’s PS3 has been hacked by the famous Wii hacker Youness Alaoui. Sony recently released a firmware update 3.5.6 which was hacked in one day of the release. The patch was pushed to stop the modded or hacked PS3 to stop joining PSN network. .As the latest update has been unpacked and signing keys have been published so that other modders can create a custom firmware which can mimic the PSN network making it thing that the user is having the latest firmware and thus allow access to PSN network.

The most interesting part is that this news spread on the same day when Sony won a case over illegal modding of PS3 by George ‘Geohot’ Hotz he has been given restraining order to take part in any PS3 hacking activities.

The first Mac or Macintosh the first ever personal computer to run Apple’s OS was reveled to a crowd of 3000 people! (I wonder how much people r there in current Apple launch day program when Steve address) The operating system which it used to run was not Mac OS X it was called System 1.0. The hardware consisted of 9″ greyscale monitor, 8Mhz Processor, 128KB DRAM, 16bit Bus.

who are into graphics design, move editing, animation ?Well at that point of time it was

The Android Story

Recently there has been much trouble for the Android as Oracle sued Google for copyright infringement, as it was found that as much as 43 source files were copied from J2SE to code the Android platform. But Google responded it with many valid points. It is not justified for Oracle to sue Google as because of

  • Sun open-sourced J2SE under the GPL license in the year 2006 and 2007 and it did not had any patent or copyright along with its code.
  • For Android Google had used a subset of Apache Harmony Java implementation.
  • For demonstrating compatibility with the Java specification the only way is to use Sun’s Technology Compatibility Kit, or TCK, and there has been internal strife about the license for the Java TCK, or JCK, for a long time among Sun / Oracle and Apache.
  • The one and only license offered by Sun t Apache is “field of use” which restricts the use in mobile platform only.

Is it that because Android has become so much popular and grown in business the real reason for Oracle to sue it? I did not find any valid reason on which ground did Oracle took such a step.
