USB jailbreak for PlayStation 3

Culture
IT'S FRIDAY AUGUST 20TH, I'M JEFF BAKALAR AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. A USB DONGLE CAN NOW JAILBREAK A PLAYSTATION 3. OR AT LEAST THAT IS THE CLAIM BY HACKERS SELLING THE DEVICE. PURPORTEDLY, THE "PS JAILBREAK"--AS THEY ARE CALLING IT--WILL ALLOW USERS TO PLAY COPIED GAMES FROM THE SYSTEM'S HARD DRIVE OR EVEN AN EXTERNAL DRIVE. IN ADDITION, THE SOFTWARE ALLOWS USERS TO RUN NON-SONY APPROVED SOFTWARE. THE HACKERS CLAIM IT WON'T VIOLATE YOUR WARRANTY AND YOU CAN PREORDER IT RIGHT NOW FOR $150 BUCKS. TRILLIAN, THE POPULAR INSTANT MUTIPLE SERVICE I-M CLIENT, HAS FINALLY RELEASED AN ANDROID BETA APP. USERS CAN EXPECT SUPPORT FOR A BROAD RANGE OF I-M SERVICES, TABBED CHATS, EMOTICONS, AND CURRENT USERS OF TRILLIAN CAN SYNC THEIR ASTRA ACCOUNTS FOR EASY SET UP. THE APP IS NOT YET AVAILABLE IN THE ANDROID MARKETPLACE, BUT USERS CAN INSTALL TRILLIAN IF THEY HAVE ANDROID VERSION 1.6 OR HIGHER AND HAVE ENABLED DEVELOPER APPS IN THEIR SETTINGS. BLACKBERRY APP WORLD 2.0 IS NOW OUT OF BETA AND AVAILABLE FOR USERS TO INSTALL. THE NEW BLACKBERRY APP STORE HAS SIMPLIFIED CREDIT CARD AND CARRIER BILLING WITH ITS NEW BLACKBERRY I-D SUPPORT. APPS WILL NOW BE TIED TO YOUR USER I-D ACCOUNT, SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TRANSITION THEM FROM ONE PHONE TO ANOTHER. THERE ARE ALSO NEW "SUPER APPS" THAT RIM WILL FEATURE, AND APPS CAN NOW BE PRICED STARTING AT 99 CENTS DOWN FROM $2.99. AFTER YESTERDAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT OF FACEBOOK PLACES DISCLOSED THAT THE SITE HAD BEEN ALREADY WORKING WITH FOURSQUARE BEHIND-THE-SCENES, THE SOCIAL CHECK-IN SITE RECEIVED MORE NEW USER SIGN-UPS IN A SINGLE DAY THAN EVER BEFORE. WHILE SOME ANTICIPATED THE NEWS WOULD ULTIMATELY END FOURSQUARE, THE IMMEDIATE REACTION SEEMS TO CONTRADICT THAT. THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I'M JEFF BAKALAR FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
