So, by now I’m sure most of you have read up on the latest announcement from Sony regarding the recent PSN outages. Not what you really want to hear, is it? To be honest though, whilst I get that this is a big deal, I’ve kind of adopted a bit of a naive disinterest – I mean out of the millions upon millions of people’s data that these hackers may or may not taken, what’s the likely hood they’re going to get to mine? Just thinking about it in terms of odds really.
Still, I’m not so much of an idiot that I’m going to do nothing… I’m just not going to do anything about it right now. I’ll change my passwords when it’s all back online… keep an eye on my bank account (I’m changing accounts anyway, so it doesn’t really matter too much now) etc…
What’s really kind of sad though is that I doubt Sony will even lose that much business from this. People have very short memories, and consumers aren’t exactly known for possessing principles. Or a spine. No… Either people won’t be affected at all in the end, and so will just go back to it, or they’ll all forget in a week, and we’ll be back where we were before this happened.
On the bright side, this incident has brought back some more Downfall clips. Downfall – which is actually a really good film about Hitler’s last days that you should go watch – has spawned one of my favourite memes where people take the same clip, and just dub their own text over it. Here are the PSN ones:
I swear, these will never get old. EVER.
