Not sure exactly this thread should go, as it kind've applies to many areas....

You know, at least it's mildly satisfying to see somebody admit and criticize one of these big electronics companies for sitting on technology in the name of content copyright. Whether it be HDTV, HD-DVD, HD-PVR's, Cable DVR's, etc... the public isn't allowed to get any of the new toys, until they're sat on for years and years, and ways are developed to restrict potential usage in every way.

I understand the perspective of the big electronics companies (particularly Sony)... but there is also such a thing as going too far. I can remember reading home theatre magazines discussing the introduction of the DVD format... year after year (or should I say excuse after excuse while they tried to get us to swallow Divx).

I'm sure nothing will come of it... but nice to see Sony get embarrassed publicly.
