    Hi all

    SONY got all of the attention, that I guess Nintendo felt left out...all kidding aside, this hacking business has gotten way out of hand. No consumer data was stolen, however since SONY has been hit so many times, sadly who knows if this is the only time Nintendo will be hit.

    Take care,

    Hackers Attack Nintendo's Servers in United States

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Nintendo's U.S.-based servers were attacked several weeks ago but no consumer data was stolen, the company said on Sunday.

    Nintendo is the latest company to be targeted by cyber criminals in a hacking attack. In April, hackers broke into Sony Corp's servers and exposed the personal information of more than 100 million of its customers. No group has taken responsibility for that attack.

    Nintendo's break-in did not affect consumers' information, the company said.

    "The server contained no consumer information. The protection of our customer information is our utmost priority," Nintendo of America, the company's U.S. unit, said in an e-mailed statement.

    "We constantly monitor our security," Nintendo said.

    On Sunday, the hacker group Lulzsec said it had attacked Nintendo in a statement posted on its Twitter feed. Lulzsec is the same group that broke into the servers that run Sony Pictures Entertainment websites last week, and claimed attacks on U.S. PBS television and Fox.com.

    Lulzsec tweeted it had taken one file but "we didn't mean any harm. Nintendo had already fixed it anyway."

    Nintendo is expected to unveil its new gaming console and successor to its hit product, the Wii, on Tuesday. It will be the first home console to enter the market in five years.

    You know what this is? All these script kiddies are going out of high school for summer break and instead of going outside to play basketball like normal kids, they're avoiding sunlight and hacking video game companies.

    Damn kids...

    This may not be kids, or they are some pretty evil ones if they are. Lulz Security may be extortionists. Someone in the comments claims the CEO may be a con man though.

    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!
