iPhone hacked and unlocked

News just hit that the iPhone has been hacked and unlocked! You weren’t supposed to be able to do this — guess what? A 17 year old kid did! 

Terry L. Brock tells us the story of George Hotz of New Jersey and then extrapolates some principles from George’s persistence in breaking the iPhone code.

What will this mean for users? Ability to get to other phone companies, not just AT & T?  Will this affect the privacy and confidentiality issues uppermost in conversation of lawyers? Will there still be an expectation of privacy when lawyers use the iPhone?

While the legal issues may be argued in court, the market place will make many decisions for users as well as Apple, the manufacturer.
