+ - Sony admits utter PSN failure-> 1

Submitted by radicalpi
radicalpi (1407259) writes "Sony has finally come clean about the "external intrusion" that has caused the company to take down the PlayStation Network service, and the news is almost as bad as it can possibly get. The hackers have all your personal information, although Sony is still unsure about whether your credit card data is safe. Everything else on file when it comes to your account is in the hands of the hackers."

+ - Spielberg - Halo Movie Rumor->

Submitted by radicalpi
radicalpi (1407259) writes "According to IGN, Stephen Spielberg is interested in obtaining the screen rights to make a Halo movie. His intention is to base it on one or more Halo novels not the games, to avoid legal issues with Fox and Universal. However, Microsoft may not want to tarnish the Halo brand with a movie, so we'll see where this goes."

+ - eFuse response from Motorola

Submitted by radicalpi
radicalpi (1407259) writes "Motorola has responded to claims that eFuse is designed to brick your device if you attempt to mod it or install unauthorized bootloaders. Here is the full story on Endgaget. Yes, the device will still not operate with unauthorized software, but it will only go into recovery mode until you reinstall the authorized software. According to Motorola: "If a device attempts to boot with unapproved software, it will go into recovery mode, and can re-boot once approved software is re-installed."

Engadget is hopeful that developers out there will be able to circumvent this for custom software and glad that the rumors that Motorola is out to destroy your property have been dispelled."

Make sure your code does nothing gracefully.
