Legal "The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company's online Playstation store in retribution for Sony's lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz. A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com."

Yes, I wonder how many people know anything about this. Thinking about the people I know, I can hear the conversation now: "Wikileaks what? Anonymous? Homebrew? I play Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto with a 13 year old in Florida." The only people who know or care about this outside of Sony are the small group of nerds who read OSNews and other nerd news websites. I wonder how many people know their PS3 plays BluRay movies. I wonder how many people know, or could tell the difference between BluRay and regular DVDs. Even if they have heard of homebrew, they would be too lazy to do the work, or too scared they'd break something. This is all a scam by some lonely nerds who think they're picking a fight about something that matters, when it really doesn't. Even if it does. And it does, but nobody else will ever know or care. Any protesters will just be made fun of again just like when they were in school.
