    Sony Factories in Japan Closed Due to Earthquake and Tsunamis

    Sponsored Links
    With news of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunamis in Japan, several Sony factories are currently closed as a result of the disaster.

    To quote from Engadget (linked above): "Sony and Toyota have both stopped operations in their factories due to damage. Tragically, one Honda worker lost his life after a wall collapsed, while several Panasonic workers are said to have suffered minor injuries.

    It remains to be seen exactly what impacts this will have on consumers, but Sony's closed factories were responsible for the production of Blu-ray discs and batteries, while the numerous automotive shutdowns could result in short-term shortages. This bad news sent stocks downward, with German share prices for Sony dropping 2.5 percent and Honda 4.5 percent.

    We're still watching with concern to see what other impacts the resultant tsunamis could have, but for now we'll keep hoping for the best."

    My thoughts are with all those in Japan. In Australia we have a lot of natural disasters and can only begin to imagine how they are feeling today.

    along with bunch of streams from cnn.com live (google it will guide you there) now its mostly repeat of the events, just waiting for more news to outflow and seeing how this nuclear reactor problems play out... cant believe all diesel generators failed in those powerplants :|

    ps on the cnn website, click on the japanese channel stream, every beginning of the hour they have english version which has the most uptodate and i believe before other channels as well..
