[QUOTE=BradWright;2595614]Yep, Sony has got to be in a gigantic financial hole right now due to the slow adoption of bluray ($500 million bribe to movie studios to kill HD-DVD) and the slow sales of PlayStation and PlayStation Portable. And when’s the last time you saw a Sony TV? They used to be absolutely everywhere - especially in conference rooms and waiting rooms - now I can’t remember the last time I saw one that wasn’t in a store.[/QUOTE]
I have two Sony TV’s … from about 4 years ago, back when their LCD TV’s were strides above the rest, and Plasma’s were energy suckers, rather than the sippers they are now.
That said, Sony must be in an extremely deep cess pool of excrement, the PS3 games & consoles sales have never really picked up, not least because the console has not dropped enough in price for mass adoption, their customer support is widely recognised to be, by leaps and strides, the worst on the planet, their treatment of a major security breach is widely recognised to be the worst mass security violation coverup in history, and their overall product quality has slipped so far that sonys financial department is standing on it (in the cesspool). I haven’t even gone into the moral conundrum regarding installing rootkits on consumers PC’s to stop them from ripping an occasional Music CD for their own “fair-use”.
But at least the average joe can’t copy their music/movies/games
