It's part of the responsibility you take on when you hold your customers financial information too keep it secure.

Sony completely and utterly failed in nearly any aspect of that, it wasn't valued by them enough to even bother encrypting.

I would feel different if Sony had even tried to keep things secure, but as it is I don't feel sorry for them at all.

If this had been a physical crime as you say, then yes the victim would be liable for the property they where holding. If I loan you my chainsaw and your house gets robbed... guess what? You can bet your ass your buying me a chainsaw. (Used or new would depend on the condition of the one I loaned you.)

I would feel bad for you if you kept your doors locked and did everything right, I would still need my stuff though. I would feel a lot less bad if I found out after the fact that you took all the locks off your house and told the local street gangs you where going to be out of town for a week....

Get an external hard drive, hack your Wii with the letter bomb exploit. Once it's hacked you can dump all your games to the external hard drive using Wiiflow or USB LoaderGX.

To get your Wiiware off the Wii, I think you would need to use a wad manager. At least that's how you install them... has better and more detailed instructions.

If only I had mod points....

Yeah I tried out all three of the services.

Netflix is wining because it's the best for the amount of content and it works on everything down to the Wii.

Amazon has newer content than Netflix but overall has less content. So to me getting Netflix and Amazon is a good fit they compliment each other.

Hulu.... When I was able to get it working...(PC,PS3,Wii-U,Wii,Android.) Technical difficulties aside, too many commercials, too much weird "content" IE previews of shows they don't actually have. I can watch trailers on Youtube for free thanks.... The content they did actually have was so uninteresting that the hurdles of getting it to actually stream just made the whole experience seem pretty insulting.

Maybe it's better now? But I can't see it improving that much in less than a year's time.

Windows 8 with Classic Shell is the way to go. Even with Windows 7 Classic Shell was already the way to go.

I have installed Classic Shell on at least 5 different Windows 8 machines. Love it as it fixes Windows 8 into a usable desktop OS. Now if only Windows 8 came with some of those features out of the box....

Not going out to buy Windows 8 to replace 7 though since 8 offers me nothing but a problem to fix. (I think 8 is probably fantastic on a touch screen.)

The popularity of Classic Shell should be some sort of clue....

Honestly I don't use Classic Shell on Windows 7 though, never even occurred to me to try it, already works the way I expect it too?

I can't say I disagree with why he did it, but it's kind of hard to argue that he didn't break the law.

From what I can tell, at any given time a huge fraction of drivers are either texting, or holding onto their phone and talking.

If where I lived introduced one of those bounties where you get money if you can get a picture of a face and a license plate using the phone while driving ... well, I could go a few blocks from my house to an intersection, and pay off my house in a few weeks.

Almost weekly I find myself behind someone who is driving a little erratic because they're holding their phone with one hand, gesturing with the other, and not paying attention to what's going on around them.

I feel bad for this guy, but I fear he's probably screwed, since he broke the law in doing this. If someone had needed to call 911 near him that wouldn't have worked out well.

Also what about people who are in homes using a cell phone?

I guess this person was so worried about the road that he didn't care that a few hundred yards off to the side could be homes with people who use cell phones instead of land lines.

I say the fine is well deserved, I agree cell phone drivers should be ticketed and they are a hazard but what this guy did was doing harm to people who did nothing wrong.

After the last one with Mathew Broderick I pretty much gave up on the whole Godzilla thing.... I love the older ones (Well maybe the stuff from the 60's is a bit too cheesy.)

I had hope that the new one was better? I mean it couldn't be worse? (Maybe if it had Justin Beiber as Ultraman or something....)

I should stop writing before Hollywood see's this and says "Ohhh lets make that!"

But rubbing bits of the same material can create static, too. Now, researchers have shot down a decades-old idea of how that same-stuff static comes about."

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "If the clock rewound, would organisms evolve the same way they did before? Humble stick insects may hold the answer to that long-running question in biology. Through studies of these bugs, whose bodies match the leaves the insects live on, researchers have found that although groups of the bug have evolved similar appearances, they achieved that mostly via different changes in their DNA. “I think it says that repeatability of evolution is very low,” says Andrew Hendry, an evolutionary biologist at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, who was not involved with the work."
