Hardware, Embedded Systems Sony is a company which is not exactly loved by technologists, despite the fact it has come up with some damn fine technology - with my personal favourite being the MiniDisc format. The problem with Sony has always been that it was stuck in the old ways of doing things (proprietary, closed, DRM), and of course things like the rootkit scandal didn't help either. It seems like things are about to change, with Sony's CEO announcing a new direction for the company - focussed on openness.

i think they just miss the thing.
"open", is "hey, i've got that promising technlogies that everybody find awesome, comme with me to develop around!!!" and not "hey, i've got nothing, come help me i'me dying. The only technology i've got are crap and/or exepensive"

(i've got a md also, and they idea of losting everything is pretty scaring"
