    You don't see much. Just a bulge in the left side of someone's gray underwear that indicates an erection pushed off to the side.

    Jon Stewart made a great joke about it. He said that the picture and the Representative have one thing in common. "They both swing hard left."

    There is no excuse that such data was unencrypted, especially in the wake of the recent massive data theft. Such a practice is an open invitation to data theft.

    Hopefully, if the story is genuine, the hackers will be brought to justice and the hacking network shut down. Even if it is not, Sony should immediately suspend any services that utilize such data, develop a coherent and effective data protection scheme, and the relaunch the services once the customer data is safeguarded. If it takes a quarter or two to do so, then so be it.
    The thing to remember is that the last attack, so much bad and faulty information came out about it that I take nothing at face value. After the last attack, there was a so called expert, testifying before congress, testifying about Sony's shoddy practices, and it turned out he was basing his testimony on what he read on a message board.

    Sony told people that if they wanted to connect to the Playstation network with their PS3, they could not be modified. Some one posted a youtube of how to modify a PS3. Sony requested the IP of the person who posted the video, and the IPs of every one who viewed it(not expecting to actually get any of it I suspect). This pissed off the hacker community, who feel it is their right to do anything they want, no matter what.

    I agree. That's why I prefaced my response with "if this story is accurate..." Hopefully, it isn't.

    In a way I feel bad for Sony. Piss off some geeks, get constantly hacked. And the thing is, no network is 100 % safe. If a group of hackers want to put the time and effort in, they can get into pretty much any publicly accessible network.

    Or in the words of Scott Jennings(who is working on computer security for a big gaming company)(paraphrased): "I don't give out my credit card info to any game company. I do it all through PayPal, so I am safe.

    Until PayPal gets hacked"
