How I Hacked My Summer Vacation

Blessed are the children — for they shall unlock our iPhone 3GS's…

At the tender age of seven, Ari Weinstein (the kid in the above video) figured out how to do an end run around AOL's Parental Controls.  Eight years later — after hacking his way through iPod Mini's, iPod Touches, and the 3GS (with a little help from the Dev-Team) — he claims to have "gone legit" and will spend the summer working on a new iPhone app.

As for the video itself (courtesy of the Wall Street Journal), it's not as rabidly "yellow journalism" as the famous Fox news affiliate piece about Anonymous — but that ain't saying much.

On the other hand: what the hell were YOU doing with your life at age fifteen?
