* Sony fixing mistakes?

Playstation2/Sony
Business Times Asia has word that the "Father of the Playstation", Ken Kutaragi, is hopeful that Sony is fixing its problems..

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc President Ken Kutaragi said he and other Sony employees have been frustrated for years with management's reluctance to introduce products like Apple Computer Inc's iPod, mainly because the Tokyo company had music and movie units that were worried about content rights.

Now, Sony's divisions are finally beginning to work together and share a common agenda, Mr Kutaragi said at the Foreign Correspondents Club in Tokyo.

'It's just starting,' he told reporters. 'We are growing up.'

High-ranking Sony officials have rarely publicly said their proprietary views were a mistake. Mr Kutaragi, who has long been viewed as a candidate to lead Sony, was unusually direct in acknowledging Sony had made an error and blaming proprietary concerns from its entertainment division.
Actually, Sony is the perfect example of a company that's gotten too big for its own good - its walkman division makes MP3 players, and its music division promptly attacking users who wanted to convert their CD's to MP3 in order to listen to them, for instance.

I don't see it. The specs on the PS3 look strange, and I have the feeling programming for it will be as annoying as programming for the PS2, which developers have complained about for years.
