George Hotz (Geohot) joins Facebook as product developer
Internet’s more well-known celebrity iPhone and PlayStation hacker George “GeoHot” Hotz has gone to Facebook. Rumors say that he’s involved with product development for the company’s alleged iPad app. The news was confirmed by a quick visit to Hotz’s Facebook page, his work status shows “Facebook software engineer starting in May 2011”
Hotz himself is responsible for the outbreak of the Internet unlocking community due to his successful manipulations of both Apple iPhones and iPod Touches as well as Sony’s PlayStation 3. The latter caused a four-month legal battle between Sony and Hotz. The hacktivist group Anonymous launched a distributed denial of service attack against Sony in April to retaliate for the company going after Hotz.
