Today’s reading reco: Bluster, bravado and breaches: Today’s ‘terrorist’ players in cybersecurity

An emailed threat can send companies to their knees and propel individuals without so much as a parking ticket straight to a holding cell. The problem is, today’s puffed-up chest hacktivists know it, and Sony has borne the brunt.” [Analysis] Read more..

Today’s quote:People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.” ~ Steve Maraboli

  2. Further reading of Yesterday’s Blog Paul…Sony has become the brunt…

    Within 2 months Sony is closing all of their 14 stores in Canada…rather alarming!

    I have a Sony Laptop of which is 6 years old…I have never had a problem with it… and it’s still going strong. I’ve also owned several other Sony products…again without any problems. I wonder who Sony will “now become” and if it’s customers will have adequate service if needed?

    • Gaia,
      I think two things: one, it depends upon the how “adequate customer service” is defined (and who is doing the defining) and, two, that retailers the world over are hurting — just one small side-effect of this Internet thingy. (Amazon: the one ring that rules them all..)

      Further thots…
      * I don’t believe Sony is going anywhere anytime soon (the company, I mean).
      * The average lifespan of a digital device is 3-5 years.
      * The Huffington Post’s article on Sony’s store closures has in interesting (if discouraging) slideshow.
