Legal "Sony has filed a new document arguing that the legal action against the noted hacker George Hotz should proceed in California. One of the arguments Hotz's legal team made against California's jurisdiction was the lack of a PlayStation Network account, which means he didn't agree to the Terms of Service, but now the company claims to have 'proof' that Hotz did in fact have a PSN account. An interview with a company based in California, and the number of downloads from California, are being used as evidence."

Reconsidering

For many years I had boycotted Sony electronics after being a fan for many years (different story - BAD customer support experience on multiple products). A little more than a year ago I broke down and bought a new Sony stereo because I couldn't refuse the deal. I might have to sell that one. Money has been spent but never again, Sony. O_o

I would pay more money for a Panasonic [insert-electronic-device-here] before I would knowingly send even a penny to Sony to buy their hardware. Hell, there are a lot of electronics companies whose products I would buy with little to no thought, but Sony is the only one I have "blacklisted". The only exception was PS2 and accessories, but that was quite a few years ago, and only because as a gamer there are some games I couldn't resist playing.
