This has become like one of those daytime game shows. A teenage hacker made a modification to Apple's much-publicized iPhone. It's supposed to be locked so you only use AT&T phone service. George Hotz of New Jersey spent hundreds of hours unlocking it.
Now he's traded the phone for a new car. A company called Certi-Cell gave him a new Nissan in exchange for the altered phone. The company says it won't market his discovery, just yet.
