Isn't Calling Something Unhackable Like Begging People To Hack You?
from the just-saying... dept
Generally speaking, any bit of technology is “hackable” in some sense — whether for good reasons or bad. However, claiming that anything is unhackable seems to only make people that much more interested in hacking it. So, why is Microsoft going around saying that the new Xbox 360 should be unhackable? At best it just makes people that much more interested in hacking the device, and at worst it makes people that much less interested in buying the new Xbox because it’s now become that much less valuable as a device that can be modified in beneficial ways.
