    Let me guess:

    • Amazing build quality, but crippled with bundleware
    • 1 year warranty, but you're out in the cold after that
    • Cheap support numbers, but a mandatory 3-levels of support until you get to people who know things (makes sense considering all the idiots who buy Sony)
    • Good brand name, made up for with the exorborant price tag
    • Good advertising, making up underpowered components
    Go figure
    Total agreement with you!

    Sony took the bad ideas wrong page out of the old IBM playbook(PCjr, MicroChannel Architecture, Token-Ring), and now uses it as a gospel: Memory Stick, Mini Disc, UMD are some jacked-up devices that come to mind.


    While the devices/technologies may have some merit, licensing did not, hense their being stillborn.
