Don't think Sony is the only one in this boat.

That is similar to my previous point, where it is all about cheapness. Cheap because it is Apache, which is gratis; and lazy because, well, they were too cheap and lazy to do the free upgrade. Cheap because their lazy management couldn't motivate their lazy IT staff to install the upgrades that were free - so they would have had to contract that job out, which not only would cost money, but would require a manager to sign a requisiton and phone a company to come in and do it.

None of this is surprising - Corporate America has been all about Cheap and Lazy for decades; meanwhile, China has what, a million hackers that are cracking stuff every minute, looking for any advantage possible. The only person that is winning more than Sony is these days is Charlie Sheen...

Not sure if serious, related to the topic, quoting the right post and not against the rules.

I laughed pretty hard


Anyways, that's pretty disappointing, if true. The stock holders won't like that, for sure...
