sony Sony wants to hire hackers now?

Sony Offers a job to a hacker, Whilst Suing another via Reddit. A commenter on image sums it up nicely…

Just an FYI since it hasn’t been stated yet, but for those of you who do not know, Koushik Dutta is the main developer behind Clockwork Recovery which is pretty much the only reason we have as many rooted Android phones as we do (including the latest Motorola phones).

There is no doubt that Android and the PS3 are wonderfully fantastic devices, but without hackers like Koushik and GeoHot, we would be nothing more than sheep, blindly accepting whatever commercially crippled b*llshit large corporations are generous enough to sling at us. I am greatly appreciative of their work and as soon as I am able, I will definitely be making considerable donations to each of them.

In my article (Sony’s War on Makers, Hackers, and Innovators) I suggested Sony hire some of these amazing makers and innovators instead of suing them – it looks like they’re trying, but they should drop the geohot lawsuit first.
