No more news available. It just doesnt work, and no message from Bing either. The page simply reroutes to its search engine page."

Did anyone notice '10-year old' and '3rd grade'? sorry to hijack, but held back 2x in grade school. perhaps there is more to this story than what we're being told than her friend giving her some candy. sadder commentary is that we're spending so much time on this story. sign of the times i guess.

+ - CNN Discusses I-Phone Jailbreakers->

Submitted by New_Guy_Here
New_Guy_Here (1671964) writes "CNN interviews Apple i-phone jailbreak entreprenour George Hotz. Evidently, George spent 500 hours over a summer vacation when he was
17 years old and cracked the i-phone, making himself somewhat of an urban legend. Further discussion with other jailbreakers and their
'warez' also included, with something of an attitude towards Apple.

Question is: now that George is in the limelight, with a few other 'breakers', how long until the lawsuits start coming? Or is he covered?"

I dropped KK on an old Dell Inspiron 1200 yesterday, because the XP on it had finally given up the ghost. Seemed pretty good, except as you note the system doesnt seem to like wireless. It doesnt register my Dell 1350 WLAN card. It seems to see it being inserted, but doesnt power it up. Not really sure how to fix this, looking in old forums. Otherwise, IMHO, nice job out of the box. Wired LAN worked fine, as did all other hardware.
