PowerPizza

Sony is evil

I just so agree with Todd:

Bad Company of the Year Award!:The company that I am putting at the top of my list is a 4 letter word so foul, that it has been banned from my home. I have asked my wife who is Japanese to refrain from buying any of their products for the next 5 years. The Bad company of the year is no other than SONY…
Sony is just a big no-buy company. My girlfriend knows why Sony is evil and we both will rather buy a more expensive or less appealing product from a competitor. "Sony is evil" has only 726 hits on Google, but this will increase.

Edit: More about the damage Sony does:

Requegesis

Requegesis is the critical interpretation of requirements. It’s at the same time an art and methodical approach to understand history, origin, background (also cultural), criticality and validity of requirements. The goal of requegesis is to find the best functional response to requirements while taking liberty in their interpretation.

The word “requegesis” itself is a portmanteau - a linguistic blend - of the two words “requirement” and “exegesis”.
