Sony is a 4 letter word

It's a very interesting spotlight being put on Sony's dirty laundry with those "hacks". On one hand I'm not surprised, since it is a multinational media conglomerate, but on the other I am surprised that people would actually put such content into an email. Obviously their IT never believed in a shorter-term retention policy, or security for that matter.

And then of course there are those movies...

Sony pictures has had a very poor bout of morale - they did a huge cutback on staff not that long ago (which makes a disgruntled employee a much more likely suspect for the hack than North Korea does), and people who've worked there have said it's pretty close to working in hell.

I found the internal review of staff's thoughts on the company pretty amusing - a lot of dislike for Adam Sandler's movies and asking why they keep working with him.
