You can do all sorts of things with your iPhone, from start your car to check on your home security system. So why not open your front door? Hey, Lockitron can do that!
When the PlayStation Network was taken offline last month, Sony said it would not restore the service until proper security measures were in place. Everything looked solid as PSN returned last weekend, until now. A new exploit has forced Sony to take down a few of its websites, leaving some PSN users unable to change their old passwords.
After nearly a month of downtime, Sony's PlayStation Network online gaming service, Qriocity and Sony Online Entertainment services were finally restored in most regions in North America, Europe, Australia and Latin America over the weekend. So is the nightmare over?
Let me count how many days it's been since Sony's PlayStation Network was hacked, one, two...25 — and it's still down. Now, Square Enix's developing powerhouse Eidos Interactive says 25,000 email addresses and 350 resumes have been compromised from its website. Will the cyber attacks on video game companies ever end?
If you're a PSN user who isn't too pleased about your personal information being made off with by nefarious hackers, Sony is hoping to mollify you with some free games. Will it be enough?
Did you hear the news? Sony's fighting for its life to stay afloat amidst all the network attacks and security compromises dealt to it by hackers. Just as Sony is "finalizing" its security to restore service to PlayStation Network, news of a third attack on Sony is eeking out. Man, Sony just can't catch a break.
Boy, is this PSN hacking thing turning into a major headache for Sony. Last week, the US House of Representatives' Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade sent a letter to Sony asking for info on what exactly went down, and now they've responded with some new info.
Sony's security issues seem to be getting worse rather than better. After a still-unidentified hacker busted into PSN, taking the service down and stealing a whole slew of user data in the process, it now appears that Sony Online Entertainment was hit as well.
Here's a fresh new idea for a bike lock: the TiGr. It's a titanium "bow" that straps around your bike and secures it to anything nearby.
The Vehicle Arrestor by Barrier1 Systems is a vehicle-stopping road barrier that can pop up out of the ground in a mere 2 seconds. How serious is it? Well, it can take a 15,000 pound truck and turn it into little pieces of junk without a lot of effort.
