In other words, they had a meeting. Anyone who has worked professionally in Japan or has a gig in academia knows and loves this fallback default setting. I can just imagine the fun and games going on down in Kasumigaseki at the moment. Lots of navel gazing and sucking wind through their teeth, despite the folks in charge probably still using the old Japanese style word processors.

How could YOU possibly know that? You was inside? Or you've seen things? Don't mix reality and propaganda.

According to CBS(USA), that got some info from BBC, 3/4 of N Korea people do not habe electricity. Then it stated that there are about 1,000 Internet station that use internet to propaganda for N Korea cause. The Internet was down for 9 hours but up now in N Korea/ Many experts are not sure how it went down by whom, /some state /china did. Some stated USA did. Just rumor . Also, CBS stated that there is no mention of Sony in N Korea news circuit. It did nt say how many people subscribe TV or newspapers.

Excellent link. Thank you.

Tom Webb,

Do you seriously think that South Korea or Japan should slaughter thousands of people because Obama says North Korea did it?

Especially in the light of the link that hidflect1 posted?

It seems most likely that Obama and the FBI were wrong.

Here it is again.

There is an article on JT Tech board about Google and Microsoft that they will show this movie on public. xBox of MS and one in Google.

Theater tickets were sold out US news media tell us/ About 300 theaters in USA

There are hackers for hire.

The FBI has pointed the finger, as they did at Iraq's WMDs.

Yet there seems to be some dissent:

Don't know what to believe, I really don't!

Haha, I can just picture it. Useless, waste of time action by some smiling desk jockey copper with one of those ubiquitous armbands on...

Maybe for the reason both Japan and South Korea posses the thing as Humanism, Equality, Decency. Something most have already abandoned, being called "humans".

USA Media has been telling that youtube google Play, MicroSoft xBox will shiw this movie. Microsoft support Sony and states that it despise hackers. No one, except Obama accused N Kprea at the beginning. Innocent until proven guilty but it is not working like that. Guilty until proven innocent when N Korea is involved. More theaters are showing this picture.

After Fukushima and the continuing lack of transparency about what went wrong and what has happened since, can the Japanese people let alone foreigners living in and around Japan have that much confidence that the Japanese establishment has the necessary self-reflective and contemplation abilities to match galapogan expertise and actually have strategies and plans of action?

When the Japanese population shrinks to a minuscule size, one of their last major acts will be to convene a meeting to discuss options, employing the very best of ringisei and QC practices.

NK who barely has computer technology and the knowledge, hacking? Come on people, let's face it. They hired china for this attack. NK isn't capable of this.

“There is no way you can guarantee that hackers won’t gain access,” said Itsuro Nishimoto, chief technology officer at LAC Co, a cybersecurity firm that works with Japanese police and companies.

100% complete crap, I can't believe you have a job title as "security expert", I've worked with government and fortune 500 companies to 9% secure their software, my last security score was 97/100 and I would have gotten 100 if the client didn't refuse to whitelist IP ranges. You can secure computers and networks with various ways and lock the computers down so users cant install anything (malware included)

Anyone that says that statement above should be fired, I cant believe the idiots out there that call themselves security and even worse the people that listen to these morons.

Sony stated 300 theaters now. Akso $15 charge on internet. So, I guess not on DVD or Blue Ray in Walmart. Merry Christmas time now. But this story will continue. Free ad for Sony than publicity stunt.But I wonder it SONY makes good profit charging $ 15.

It is obvious Inhumane U.S.A. government blames whoever is their target of decapitation. Does not appear that North Korea would do anything with hacking pitiful Sony(they even suggested help with finding out who did it), coming from the message hackers left on hacked computer; It is Sony's fault for being so cheap company without decent equipment yet daring to make an insulting film.

time for regime change for the NorKs.

Why don't the South Korean or Japan just bomb out the nuke sites in North Korea and end this silly game? How much more crap will the world has to take from this spoiled brat?
