iPhone Hacker first tried DLP

A teenager named George Hotz made big news this week when he announced that he hacked into his iPhone to get it to work on Sprint network (The iPhone is hard-wired to only work with AT&T). I find it amazing a high school student could pull that off. He ended up trading it to a cell phone repair company for a new car and three new iPhones.

From his blog, it didn't seem like he got far enough to actually drive the DMD differently. Still, admirable work. I'd like to meet the guy.
