267w ago - PCWorld had the opportunity to [Register or Login to view links] Sony's Director of Network Operations Eric Lempel to get answers to several topics including PS3 Firmware Updates, NXE and Hulu.

For the complete interview see the link above, but below are some excepts from it, as follows:
