Boycott Sony

By Steve Jones, 2005/11/04

In general I have been a Sony fan for most of my life, starting with the Walkmans they brought out in the eighties.

But no more. Not sure if I'll skip their movies, but I am done buying Sony products for now after the rootkit incidents. There are two entries from Mark Russinovich: Part 1 and Part 2.

I totally understand their desire to protect their content, but you cannot go installing secret software and replace drivers on someone's computer. It's effing ridiculous and I have written my Congressman and Senators to complain.

I'm also writing Sony to let them know I'm boycotting. No more computer parts, DVDs, CDs, audio components, car stereo, etc. Sony is off my list.
