I find myself wondering if giving OtherOS and/or homebrew back to users (and apologizing to geohotz et al) would be a bad move at this point. It's unlikely that the custom firmwares had anything at all to do with the current round of attacks, and giving back some tools to tinker with would keep most of the hacker (as opposed to crackers) community happy. Sony's PR could definitely benefit from a little good will at this point. If Sony designs the new firmware appropriately, giving these features back should, from a security standpoint, move them closer to the original state; i.e. OtherOS, and another 4 hack-proof years.
Will this actually happen? I sincerely doubt it.
Apr 27th 2011 11:45PM Sony, as long as you're busy making new firmware, how about including a decent web browser and better codec support for streaming (.mkv containers at a minimum)? Some cross-game chat support would be nice too. Skype perhaps?

Autocross? Hell Yes.
Feb 21st 2011 7:39PM Paint it pink. The design seems to be swine-inspired. oink oink oink.
Feb 4th 2011 9:33PM I bought my 2010 PRHT Touring MX-5 back in July. I test drove a dozen other cars, but none of them really came close to the subtle refinements that made the miata such a pleasure to drive. The giant silly grin on the front isn't my favorite, but as others have said in the past, it matches that of the driver.

About the best thing I can say about the situation is that at least he's using the money for housing rather than bullets.

Or if you want the one with the reflashed ECU, you can get it here:
disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with either of these vendors. I'm just the owner of a NC miata and have been looking at potential ways to make it a little more unique. I love the revised front they've got on this car, and will happily purchase it should it become available.
Oct 14th 2010 8:37PM Kneeslider covered this a couple days ago (with many more details). And according to them, it does have a dry sump oil system. : "A dry sump oil system keeps the oil going everywhere it should."
Oct 11th 2010 6:24PM I see that picture, and my mind automatically thinks, "his epiglottis is full of bees."
Aug 20th 2010 6:44PM As a former South Carolina resident (I'm too much of a yank, they kicked me out). I lived in a town called Summerville, just outside of Charleston.
1: South Carolina back roads outside of the city have no shoulders. generally, the ditches start a foot from where the asphault ends. If you do start inadvertently swerving, you're off the road before you know it. It also means that when a cop 'pulls someone over', they don't actually get off of the road; they just block the lane.
2: South Carolina vehicle registration laws are very lax. There are no inspections to speak of; if it has wheels and an engine, you can prettymuch get a state license plate for the thing. The chance of her '87 bronco being roadworthy by most standards is debatable.
3: Officers couldn't stop people for safety belt infractions in the state until December of 2005. Since safetybelts weren't necessarily a ticketable offense before that, it's likely that they weren't in the habit of wearing the things.
