Hey folks you all must be aware of the fact that GeoHot was sued by Sony EUA for Jailbreaking and releasing the Keys for the Sony PS3. Recently he asked for a donation and it was closed within few days, though the amount was not told but it was covered in few days. So how come it was covered in few days?
It is said that Microsoft have paid a healthy amount to GeoHot to pay to his Lawyers to find against Sony.
According to everythinghq
The information comes from a source close to the matter who must remain anonymous that in an attempt to help George win his case, and thus making it legal to hack the PlayStation 3, the company anonymously donated a large lump of cash so he could cover his court fees; remember: only 2 days had passed after Hotz requested the money and then received all of the money.
Well this thing can be possible because recently Microsoft invited GeoHot to Jailbreak their Windows Phone7 and make it look good. By knowing the fact that GeoHot was the first hacker to Unlock the iPhone, so it is possible that Microsoft must be defending him to fight Sony.
