Microsoft talks Windows Phone 7 homebrew with ChevronWP7 team

When hackers are playing with your platform, you can either try to thwart them - leading to a cat & mouse situation as with Apple and the iOS jailbreakers - or you can work with them; sensibly, Microsoft is apparently doing the latter when it comes to Windows Phone 7.

Dev-Team looks for redsn0w testers for 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak “backup plan”

Back in November, we first talked about redsn0w and outlined a bit of the downsides about trying it out.

Court in Spain Rules It’s Legal to Own, Advertise, and Sell Jailbroken PlayStation 3s in Spain

The story of jailbreaking a PlayStation 3 home console from Sony is a pretty tumultuous one. It's been a roller coaster of being able to jailbreak the console, to not being able to, to some judges around the world permanently banning devices that helped owners get the job done. But now, it looks like if you want to be free to own, sell, or advertise about a jailbroken PS3, you just need to head to Spain, where it's been made perfectly legal to do all of that.

Apple gave iPad users iOS 4.2 but took away the screen orientation lock switch in the process, and according to Steve Jobs it's never coming back.
