Legal And so Sony's crusade against Playstation 3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz continues. After Sony getting all of Geohot's computers and access to server logs and personal details from many of his websites and social media accounts, Sony has now been given access to Geohot's PayPal account, and all information within it - including of the people he has had financial dealings with.

The worst here is that Sony *are* able to program decent software. My Sony compact camera is just wondrous for its price, firmware included. Firmware wasn't my MD recorders' big problem either. No complaints on the overall usability and stability of my parents' Sony TV and HDD recorder's software either.

The problem is that when Sony focus on making money from a product *after* it is sold, terrible things happen. This is when you get SonicStage and Connect Player. Home appliances that will display photos but not videos from an USB pen drive, forcing you to use the low-res chinch connectivity if you want to show your own videos to your parents. And, apparently, the PSN is another victim of this mysterious law of nature.
