I own a IT recruiting and consulting firm here in the NW. So I can see both side's ot the issue. But when a company is getting attacked left and right. It's extremely hard to see it from the hacker's prospective. Not like I ever agreed with hacking in the first place. But, when you read the news here about how Sony is losing money on every PS3 sold for the first 3 years.
Then what? We both know that if the PS3 and the XBox were manufactured by say Sega. Neither console would be here today at all. Because of the major issues both have faced. So again, I like to see the positve in things and neither company is telling me how to spend my money, I do.
As for personal data, I defend no one for that. Not even MS when it happen to them. But then again, go google the word hacking. So what other large companies have been hacked over the last decade. You even see the US Pentagon which is our nations national defense. So lets not act like this is something mind blowing new here.
Then, lets not also forget how media once again blew figures way out of proportion... first it was 77 million credit cards were stolen. Now seems to be 10 million in the system with only 2 million "possibly" effected. So, now that it's been 3 weeks since the hackers were in. Where is all the news about hundreds of thousands of CC being used?
Awh, were all still waiting I see... Again, I don't defend them. But their system was hacked and now they will improve upon that. Just like every other company out there. So easy to look at Sony and not the attackers huh? Like this is the first time Sony has ever been attacked over the last decade and defended itself.
