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."

Sony does some very nice hardware and it is really stupid
to ignore it just because you hate Sony legal practices.

Blah... for every piece of Sony hardware you would argue is "very nice" there are likely several examples of "truly excellent" hardware in the same class by Sony's competitors. And their competitors have so far demonstrated that they will not sue you for using their products as you see fit after buying it from them and having it in your own possession.

It's not like I have to go out of my way to avoid Sony. Their competitors have *always* left me with better choices in products; even if you took the brand name off of everything to remove all traces of bias against Sony, the choice would be clear.
