Microsoft to GeoHot: Wanna Mess with Windows Phone 7?
#geohot if you want to build cool stuff on#wp7, send me email and the team will give you a phone – let dev creativity flourish #wp7dev
Kind of a brilliant move from Microsoft — stick it to Sony a little bit, look like hip, cool and happening dudes for supporting the little-guy hackers, and maybe be able to ride the lightning of the press blitz surrounding GeoHot and build some attention for Windows Phone 7.
And if Georgie happens to make something cool with his Windows Phone 7, he might be able to use any money he makes to pay back Sony if they win their case — and he gets pummeled with a big-ass fine. Works out for everybody. Well, except for those of us who can no longer play online games on Playstation 3.
