Why is this on Slashdot?

Because Airbus makes shitty Angle Of Attack probes (caution:pdf). And if I remember right, they don't even provide an indicator for the pilots! Angle of attack is one of the most basic and most important things to know.

Oh, did you mean computer nerds? Well, unfortunately Airbus (and probably the newest Boeings) is controlled by a computer that can't be overridden when it suffers from bad data input.

Me? insinuate? Ohhhh no, never! It's just an observation of what invariably happens when people reelect corrupt politicians to 40 year careers in the expectation they will bring home some serious pork. It's what keeps the Great American Boondoggle alive. As far as democracies go we have nothing new here. The whole ordeal has become quite ordinary.

...Merely a response to the OP. I would say Samsung and LG are far more significant than NK and media fantasy 'hackers' if we are going to ask 'cui bono'. If you want to narrow down your targets as quickly as possible, follow the money, not the politics (and certainly not the tabloid press!), unless there's family involved, that's a whole 'nother bucket of worms.

Well of course! I exclude nobody. I just think the sentimental 'morality' play is just a bit silly. On the other hand, it always does draw a crowd. The big story to me is the reaction to the initial incident. It reveals the animal, and all the emotion clouds the judgement. The audience does not know and/or care that it is being played. They have become the movie.

Topic over, now lets turn and face infinity and eternity, as they are lying in front of us, waiting.

BAH! You're swimming in it.

And remember, folks, Korea is a democratic republic, and not only that, it's a peoples republic, says right there in the name. Words have meaning, right? Everybody tells me that all the time. Now, excuse me while I go take another Valium so I don't feel the heat

At some point you have to apply Occam's razor and ask who benefits.

At some point... Yeah, the very first thing to ask would be that.

So, you're saying that Sony leaked thousands of extremely embarrassing and in some cases damaging internal documents...

Or anybody shorting the stock... It took a dip for a while and is now rebounding.

Please, people, get the silly politics out of your heads. This is strictly business. Could be some soap opera between Sony, Samsung, and LG, who knows, who cares, aside from the drama and intrigue for somebody's next movie.
