<alison> everyone heard that it's now illegal to unlock phones, right?
<alison> not that that would stop anyone. just advocating informed choices. ;)
<xHans> alison: illegal under certain circumstances
<toddc> no you can root or jailbreak but not open the phone carrier portion
<alison> oh
<dennisk> See Matt Garrett's blog for the current state of UEFI. Matt will be speaking at SCaLE11x. http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/22028.html
<alison> that's better than i thought
<alison> thanks - ill check it out
<Dazed_75> yes, but it is not the unlocking that is illegal, it is unlocking in order to take the phone to another carrier
<toddc> most carriers will unlock after your contract ends
<toddc> for you for free
<toddc> xHans if you are here do you have any news for us?
<xHans> also, don't buy subsidized phones from the carriers and make them earn your business :)
<Dazed_75> true, but before contract ends is what that stupid law is about
* xHans is not here ;-)
* ack-fin has quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)

<toddc> it is only open till 9PM so events must end at 8:30
<xHans> dennisk: it might, but we haven't really had a chance to review, being able to get one more month at MCC would be awesome
<xHans> ah, that's too early

<toddc> cool if anyone else wants to play we can form a team!!
<xHans> we've got a faculty sponsor, which should be enough
<Madrobit> ill defintly do it
<toddc> Thanks for coming tonight. I will be here a while if anyone needs help or has a question
