Wall Street Journal report Yukari Iwatani Kane has written a great piece about Ari Weinstein, a teen hacker who along with a bunch of other teens he met online, was able to jailbreak the Apple iPhone 3GS and iTouch.
Ari's just your typical 11 year old boy who can hack around the AOL parental controls, figure a work around that allows him to download games onto his iTouch for free and, oh yeah--meet up with other teen geeks online and jailbreak an iPhone.
No Apple isn't happy. And yes, Ari's parents have talked to him about ethics. And oh, they also made sure that Ari got an attorney.
