Reap what you sow

Have you been following the Sony CD PR โš ๏ธ (link now 404 ๐Ÿ˜• - March/24) nightmare? I couldnโ€™t believe it when I heard it. In a nutshell Sony included a program on their audio CDs that loaded *without user knowledge* and blocked any attempts to copy the data. Apparently the program could be exploited to allow viruses and all sorts of crap in. How arrogant of Sony. Ironically I was just warming to the idea of getting a Sony PS3โ€ฆNow I wonder if supporting such a company is what I want to do. Sigh. Sony admitted they were wrong and will be replacing all the CDs. Burn Sony, you deserve it.

Haโ€ฆ another F you to Sony as the state of Texas is suing โš ๏ธ (link also 404 ๐Ÿ˜• - March/24 - funny how these are all gone!) them! Donโ€™t mess with Texasโ€ฆVarious sites are predicting that Sonyโ€™s console dominance is also in jeopardy. With the 360 coming out just in time for Christmas, the 360 is predicted to do well. Not sure how excited Iโ€™m about more M$ monopoly. I guess one evil empire or the otherโ€ฆ.
