Privacy, Security, Encryption Sony just restarted its Playstation Network, after the massive security fail dismissed as a 'hiccup' by Sony CEO Howard Stringer. Well, the PSN has barely been up two days, and a massive security oversight has already been discovered. Yes, Sony just got Sony'd. Again. Unbelievable.

One should always remember that a for-profit corporation is in the business of producing profits and whatever product they happen to make is simply a tool used in the profit manufacturing process.

Microsoft manufacture's profit; they happen to use software in the production process.

Sony manufacture's profit; they happen to use moving pictures and game consoles in the process.

I think it's actualy an obligation within corporate law that when a decision comes down to benefiting the shareholder or benefiting the customer, they must choose to benefit the shareholder at the expense of the customer benfit.

As such, they'll fight tooth and nail over something that directly impacts the current management's short term performance goals but something that directly impacts the customers.. fk them; they're just wallets that have already been harvested.
