Sony America recruiter Sarah McRae sent an email off to Android OS hacker Koushik Datta (aka Koush) offering an interview for a position on Sony's R&D team.
Koush was grateful but responded:
I appreciate that I have been contacted. The opportunity sounds very interesting! However, given Sony�s recent treatment of a fellow hacker George Hotz (@ geohot), I could not in good conscience work at Sony
The hacker/dev also added that Android has been good to him:
To clear up any confusion, I was not offered a job, just an interview, which I declined out of principle. For those saying �I�m going to regret being principled�, etc. Probably not. Android App sales have been more than good to me. Good, enterprising, devs should never find themselves short of opportunities.
