    Japan blocks PlayStation Network reboot as security precaution | ZDNet

    Sony announced over the weekend that it would be restoring PlayStation Network service gradually throughout the globe. However, not every country will welcome the service back just yet.

    Japan, the homeland of Sony’s global headquarters, is requiring at lot more than just promises when it comes to future security measures.

    After two meetings with Sony execs, Kazushige Nobutani, director of Japan’s Media and Content Industry department at the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, told Dow Jones Newswires that the Japanese government has asked for the following:

    “The first is preventative measures. As of May 13, Sony was incomplete in exercising measures that they said they will do on the May 1 press conference,” he said, adding that he could not provide details on the outstanding issues for security reasons.

    The second was in how Sony hoped to regain consumer confidence over personal data such as credit card information.

    Japan did the right thing.

    I'm not signing on until I'm certain they have a better handle on things. They didn't secure the new sign in process enough. No hack, but they realized after they turned things back on that someone else could change your password if they have your info.

    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
