Legal Well, it seems like Sony vs. George Hotz has ended pretty much without a bang. Sony announced on its Playstation blog that the two parties have settled the case. Under the settlement, Hotz agrees to a permanent injunction fo his jailbreaking hack, but admits to no wrong-doing. A wise and, dare I say it, mature end to the lawsuit.

My most recent letdown was learning that the LCD screen in my Nokia N900 is a Sony OEM part.


Seriously?! Damnit, you just made me feel dirty and vile for loving my N900 (well... more so than Nokia already has recently)

Sensors in Nikon cameras (at least some models), for example.

Ahh, so they are in yet another brand I love. I have a Nikon Coolpix L12 that has been far and wide the best point and shoot I've ever used, even compared to my girlfriend's newer L18. I wonder now if it contains any Sony parts?

Yeah, my first month with the N900 was bordering on "magical" (in the Steve Jobs sense), but for the past few weeks T-Mobile USA's service has gone from outstanding to worse than I thought possible. Random disconnects from 3G internet every few minutes, missed calls, texts and emails that arrive hours after they were sent. Combine all that with learning of the origin of certain parts in my new phone and I'm starting to regret buying it.

At this point Virgin Mobile's $25/month Android plan is starting to look mighty tempting, and with the money I could get out of selling my gently used N900 I could buy the LG or Samsung Android phone they offer and pay for a few months' service to boot.
