THE BLOKE who hacked the Apple Iphone has flogged it for three other 3G phones and a $30,000 Nissan roadster.

According to the Daily News, George Hotz the New Jersey whiz kid had an easier time cracking an Iphone than selling it.

The 17 year-old figured out how to unlock an Iphone so it can use a service plan other than AT&T, tried to flog it on Ebay but the bid was hijacked by Apple fan boys who felt it was sacrilege to thwart St Steve of Cappuccino's sacred technology.

Terry Daidone, who runs a phone refurbishing company, called Hotz yesterday with an offer to trade the $30,000 wheels for the historic cell phone. Now he has the flash car, it appears that Hotz is now looking for a girlfriend.
