It’s a pretty simple game where you use the keyboard to “eat up” letters in the shortest amount of time possible. And unless you’re really bored, it won’t entertain you for more than 2 minutes.

The game is meant for HTML5 supported browsers, so if you’re using an old version of your browser, upgrade!

Judge Accepts Sony’s Request To Identify Visitors To Geohot’s Sites and YouTube Channel

“Geohot” is known in the hacking and modding world, most notably for his work with the iPhone. Since his latest work with the PlayStation 3, Sony seems intent on punishing him…and apparently everyone else they can.

According to the article, they’re trying to retrieve records from anyone who has been involved; for example, anyone who has viewed a YouTube video on how to jailbreak a PS3.

I find this article pretty staggering that Sony is so aggressively trying to punish people who have modified their own devices. It’s worth keeping tabs on what happens with this case because it could set a precedent for what is or is not viewable on the internet–even on YouTube.
