Sony Hacking Scandal -- Execs Convinced It's an Inside Job

Sony Hacking Scandal -- Execs Convinced It's an Inside Job | IT Support and Hardware for Clinics | Scoop.it

Sony execs are now convinced someone who worked for the studio is behind the massive hacking ... because no one from the outside could so precisely target the compromising information.

Multiple sources connected to the studio tell TMZ ... the strong, prevailing view is that the North Koreans are probably involved, but they used someone with intimate knowledge of the Sony email system to laser in on the most embarrassing information.

We're told the people at Sony who are investigating believe the hackers had intimate knowledge of mail systems and their configurations. They also believe the hackers have knowledge of the internal media distribution systems and the internal IT systems, including human resources and payroll.

Several people suggested a possible link between the hackers and Sony layoffs, which included a large number of IT employees.

Insider job or very precise social engineering, either way not understanding the threat is the biggest problem for an organisation.

Sony Just Created A New Google Glass Competitor That Attaches To Your Current Glasses

Sony Just Created A New Google Glass Competitor That Attaches To Your Current Glasses | IT Support and Hardware for Clinics | Scoop.it

While startups and large companies like Google are busy developing smart glasses, Sony has just invented a device that clips on to your current eyewear to add those same features (via The Verge). 

The device itself is a module that clips on to your glasses and essentially adds a small 640 x 400 pixel display, a camera, and a processor.

Sony claims the tiny screen is capable of showing high-quality full color photos and videos, and the processor inside is about on par with what you'd get in today's smartphones. 

The benefit of this type of gadget over something like Google Glass, according to Sony, is that you can clip it on or take it off whenever you need to.

You're not committed to wearing it all the time like you would be if you wore a prescription version of Google Glass.

Here's what you would see while looking through Sony's gadget.

It looks like the experience will be very similar to that of Google Glass, but specialized for certain use cases like sports. 


Judging by Sony's renders, it looks like the gadget will be rather bulky, so chances are you won't want to wear it all the time.

It sounds like Sony plans to license out the technology to eyewear and tech companies rather than releasing it as its own consumer product, and mass production is expected to kick off within the year. 

It's a different approach that what we've seen from most companies getting into wearable tech, but it's unclear if this will actually appeal to consumers. Even Google has been having a hard time convincing everyday consumers to wear computerized glasses, it seems, as The Wall Street Journal says the next version of Glass will be geared toward hospitals and other enterprise use cases.
