back to article Sony and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad quarter

Sony didn't have a terrific second quarter. If the electronics/entertainment conglomerate ran a milk business, its cartons would read thusly: "Have you seen me? 90.1 per cent of our Q2 profits."

    Such a shame to see those DRM touting, rootkit making, arrogant tossers lose all their money.

    All your Memory sticks belong ... well actually going on your sales ... they still belong to you! Oh dear what a pity never mind, see if you can think of any great new lock in products to hit the masses when inflation is rampant and unemployment is rising.

    Sony's problem is.....

    They are too expensive for what they are. They up the price for the badgeand people are sick of it.

    They are arogant and ignorant to their customers. The best bit is their laptop support line. You need to register online to get support. However if the laptop is dead you cant register and so cant get support.....

    How times have changed...

    I used to like Sony. 15 years ago I would think high end, reliable and good quality products with great customer support means Sony.

    But in the last 10 years they've become arogant, lowering the quality whilst upping the price, lacked innovation and threw in some lovely DRM to piss off the geeks. Oh, and also managed to completely cock up customer support - as in they don't really have any.

    Any attempt any innovation is some pointless proprietary "standard" which is replaced by a chepear more open choice within a year. Quality has gone and has been replaced with marketing.

    Seriously - they're blaming the strength of the Yen?!
