Chapter 5: The First Million THE BOY GENIUS The challenge to unlock the iPhone caught the eye of George Francis Hotz — known online as Geohot — an 18-year-old electronics prodigy from Hackensack, New Jersey. Hotz had grown up in the homebrew hacking community and was fanatical about electronics, particularly robots. Hotz recalls that he had even dismantled an Apple II out of curiosity when he was around five years old. George Francis Hotz, or Geohot, was the young hacker who laid claim to figuring out a way around the iPhone’s restrictions.

It was also clear to many developers that the iPhone was the most advanced pocket-sized computer ever produced — and certainly the first massmarket touchscreen device with a UNIX operating system (a favorite of the hacker community). With the iPhone, Apple had inadvertently created super-powerful hacker bait. Coders all over the world could not wait to get inside and figure out what made the device tick. Within days of its launch, the race was on to crack the iPhone. Hackers all over the world decided they would attempt to provide iPhone owners with a set of tools to allow them to unlock their iPhones and install third-party software.

Every Apple launch is closely followed not just because of the excitement surrounding the newest technology, but because Apple tends to dictate the direction of the whole industry: to watch where Apple is heading now is to know where Microsoft, HP, or Sony is heading tomorrow. It’s hard for journalists to keep their eyes off the company. Articles, books, and shows about successful people are much more popular than stories about losers, and so the press loves to write about Apple. The popular narrative of the App Store often continues unabated — you can make a million dollars!
