Games There's fail, there's epic fail, and then there's Sony. You may've thought it wasn't possible, but Sony has just outdone itself on the fail scale, forcing us to add yet another notch. During the congressional testimony this morning, Dr Gene Spafford of Purdue University revealed just how badly Sony managed its Playstation Network servers. It's... Bad.

Normally when I get angry at Europe, it is this hypersensitivity which I cite. If you come from an armpit of a country like me (South Africa) people tend to worry about real problems and therefor don't take all the joy out of a colorful analogy.

The only reason the character in this analogy is female is because Sony was penetrated, and traditionally this is the role of the woman. If we view the security flaws as protuberances, we can rehash it as:

Sony appeared to have gone looking in ever nook and craggy for a suitably shady glory hole to poke us (its customers) into. Repeatedly.
