Overseas, we love the stories of robbers who end up hired by large companies or even government, as Leonardo DiCaprio in the film Catch Me If You Can. This is the story just happened to George Hotz, aka GeoHot. This little computer whiz came to prominence by making the first jailbreak the iPhone before unlocking a PlayStation 3 in order to install third party software this year, said ZDNet. A story that earned him to be in the sights of Sony for several months …

Reportedly, Hotz began work at Facebook as a software engineer in May 2011 and his first day was May 9, however, not the position he occupies, but it seems that his skills are working on mobile applications projects of social network.
