• Geohot Working at Facebook, iPad App in the Works

    George Hotz, the infamous iPhone hacker, and the victim of a recent Sony lawsuit, now works at Facebook. A member of the Chronic-Dev Team named Joshua Hill (P0sixninja) said this in a recent interview. Joshua challenged GeoHot to find a bootrom exploit for the iPad2, and this news quickly spread on Twitter. In the interview, Joshua said the George was mad at him because he doesn’t want that much attention, after being sued by Sony, and backed out of the challenge to work at his day job… at Facebook. Geohot has yet to say anything, after the Sony lawsuit, he blogged for a while then completely MIA. This does all add up because Facebook has confirmed they are working on an iPad app, when before they said they were not going to do one at all. We will keep you guys updated if Geohot says anything.

    Gabe Rivera of Techmeme in a tweet found Geohot’s page at Facebook.com/Geohot, and the first post at the top of page says” is Facebook is really an amazing place to work…first hackathon over.”. He also found out that he started in May, and announced it to his Facebook friends on June 17, 2011.

      I wonder if this has anything to do with the recent article posted on this site regarding Facebook's upcoming play on taking on Apple at the own game through the use of an HTML5 based app store.
