"hacking" an open platform. phonearena is this what you have to do to make your crappy news article sell?

"Not to bring anybody down... but seriously... we intentionally left the device unlocked so you guys could hack it and do crazy fun sh** with it," Google engineer Stephen Lau wrote. "I mean, FFS, you paid $1500 for it... go to town on it. Show me something cool." Hack isn't a bad thing, just that someone found a way around what it normally does. A hack.
Why would Google want to not load their boats? How would they use them? (FYI, I have no clue if there are actual boat loaders out there.)

Jailbreak cannot be valid for Android -.- root has nothing to do with that!
