    Woz is still a loser, but a pretty cool one.

    I have a hard time feeling sorry for Mitnick. He did hack into other people systems and **** around with them. Woz's powerbook could have been better used. Mitnick's book may make him rich so why give him a freaking powerbook?

    Yeah I don't think that's particularly cool. It's like giving a convicted rapist a ski mask to celebrate when he gets out.

    its because of people like him that we can learn so much about computers, he was a pioneer in the computing field of knowledge.



    he didn't **** around with systems, he went into them for a search for knowledge, something i guess you don't have

    scott, no offense, but you should start reading up to the story. <a href="http://www.wired.com/news/culture/0,1284,56187,00.html"; target="_blank">start</a>

    You're [not being logical]. He hacked into private systems and then installed hacker tools to hack into more private systems. It's a private system. He has no right to hack into it for any reason. Only an idiot would think he does.



    I might think that his jail time was too much or that the government singled him out for an example. But for the most part ****ing with other people's computers is wrong.

    Not quite the same, but I understand the sentiment. Either way, it gives other aspiring l33t h4Xors another reason to get a mac.

    now come on, mine was only a vague personal attack



    i guess i just don't mind him doing things like that because of what it means to me. i'm not sure if you have a firm understanding on how hard it is to do things like that, and the talent he had. those systems were just stepping stones to what he wanted, he was able to exploit them to get to his final target which is amazingly hard. i understand he doesn't have the right to be in them but if he isn't causing harm i don't see why its any reason to get pissed about.



    i am just in aw by his hacking and social engineeing skills, it must have been amazing

    He'll fire up that TiBook and go "what the hell, the internet is still this slow??!"



    Then he'll log on in an internet cafe, using their Compaq with a Pentium III.... and see how fast the internet really is.

    sorry, i don't understand how i was considered to be rude, i just said that kevin was on a quest to learn things that wasn't as easy as reading a book, and he did what he had to, and that scott wouldn't do that



    ...also i didn't call anyone an idiot





    ...ALSO please don't close this thread
